How open do you think you would be if your appointment was scheduled with several others that shared your malady? Is this what our medical future looks like?
How would HIPPA laws apply to these situations? If a patient opts for a group appointment does HIPPA law become void or does it only apply to office policy and procedures?
Just because I might suffer from hemorrhoids doesn't mean I want to see or hear about yours. I would never do this. I don't really like it when my doctor has an intern or some such crap sitting in my appointment with me for training purposes. I certainly am not going to put up with a bunch of strangers in my appointment. This feels too much like a "herding cattle" mentality. At this point, you are no longer viewed as a person in my opinion. Now you are just a symptom or a condition.
