Why won't my doctor see me for more than 5 minutes?
Why can't I see my doctor for 2 months?
Why doesn't my doctor focus on preventing illness?
Why does my doctor always make me go to the office for everything?
The answer to all these questions is simple. The reason why you are not getting the care that you need is that your doctor doesn't get paid to address these issues and because your Insurance company or the federal government gets in the way.
The high overhead in traditional family practice clinics means that the typical doctor needs to see 25-35+ patients/day to break even. That translates into very little time for you and long waits in the waiting room. This also means that the doctor has too little time with you to discuss emotional/mental concerns or preventative medicine. They only have time to prescribe you a medicine and move on. In addition, insurance doesn't typically reimburse doctors for preventative medicine services like weight loss and diet counseling. This means that the type of medicine you get is almost always reactionary and not preventative which is exactly the opposite of what I feel the role of a health practitioner should be.
I also personally think that 80-90% of medical issues and preventative medicine could be handled remotely over the phone or email. Why hasn't your doctor introduced these options? Once again the answer is your insurance company. Your doctors keeps bringing you to the office because insurance companies only pay for "office visits". This leaves you forced to take valuable time out of your day to address issues that could have been addressed remotely and at your convenience. Your doctor is also not reimbursed for calls or afterhours service so it is typically impossible to talk to your doctor about urgent issues after hours.
It is because of these issues and many more that I have started MurdockHealth. It is my goal to spend more time with patients at a lower cost and in a manner that is convenient for them. I want to spend the majority of my time focused on preventative medicine and not reactionary medicine. I also want to be available to my patients 24/7. They can call me whenever they need me. If this sounds like the type of practice you want then please call 214-929-2411 or check out some the benefits or services pages on this website.
