I've seen all sides of America's healthcare system, from medical school, to private practice, to the emergency room, and beyond. I can tell you that there is nothing wrong with our healthcare system that can be fixed by Washington politicians or scheming bureaucrats.
As a D.O., I've been recognized by patients and peers alike for achievements in the field of medicine, and the principles I rely on as a physician are sorely needed in our healthcare debate.
* Patients first -- ALWAYS
* Preserve the doctor-patient relationship
* Government bureaucrats and insurance industry lobbyists are NOT doctors, they don't put patients first
* When doctors and patients cut out the middle-men, healthcare is more affordable and far less complicated
* ObamaCare is a disaster for patients, doctors, and taxpayers, and must be fully repealed in favor of free market solutions
