More on the General Surgeon Shortage

Posted Jan 07 2009 3:02pm

[T]heir ranks are dwindling, The Washington Post (NYSE:WPO) says, caused in large part by educational, medical and sociological forces.

I already told you the reasons are lifestyle and money, simply put. Few surgeons want to live a general surgeon's lifestyle and get paid like a plumber. I see some surgeons paid $200 to wake up at 3:00 am and perform surgery. That is a joke!

Formerly double boarded surgeons like myself are not re certifying because of the expense and hassle. Why should we?

Best Regards,

John Di Saia MD
