    * What we really need are some standard, objective measures by which to compare and evaluate doctors. In the words of Consumer Report’s Dr. Santa: until we have that, all this online rating stuff is pretty meaningless, because how can we compare quality if we can’t even define it? Touche.”

    Re: Well maybe.. But who’s going to Evaluate Whom? Fellow Doctors? That doesn’t work …. Patients? Most expect alot more hand Holding and Think for a couple of Hundred Dollars they should spend an hour with them everytime..and God Forbid Not Give the Patient a reality Check adn tell them the truth..

    No, with Libaily being the way it is? The only way is to go to a HMO plan again.. A National Health Ins. Plan for the Masses..and the Dr.’s Not being Liable for what they say.. and of course everyone Wants The BEST Care, but Not pay for it…LOL

    And it’s Not a God Given Right either as so many want to think it is..
    Health Care Will Never work for the masses… Only for those who have the foresight to work, live with in their means and pay for it..Just like everyother service that people want to get paid for..
