The practice of medicine is a subtle art. Doctors need to give patients their undivided attention.

They can't due to so many constraints put on them through government regulations and rules. Just get used to talking to your Dr's back.

This is a direct result of the Obama administration. Hopefully Mrs. Clinton will clean up the Obama mess in the practice of medicine.

Good Doctoring requires undivided attention to patients,but many doctors have become slaves to Electronic Health Records or Electronic Medical Services. Without good communication, a doctor may give you the wrong diagnosis or order tests you don't need. And the less you and your doctor talk about your care or make decisions together, the less likely you are to understand or follow through on your treatment. Whether good dialogue makes you less confused or more invested in your own care, it matters.
But there are still professional doctors who are struggling to help their patients. Just need to find them)
