Doctor's incomes are expected to fall 15 to 20% when the health care bill goes into place...thoughts?

I just saw this on the news (CW 33 News).

  • Make too much???? They have a super important job with super HUGE college bills and go to school forever to do it.

    They save our lives, keep our kids healthy and work LONGGG hours?

    I say that it stinks and that lots of people will choose other carears
    and may possibly hurt our selection of GOOD Dr's !!!!!

  • I say it's ridiculous. They go to school for 8+ years, pay huge malpractice rates and keep you healthy. Why should they not be able to make that much?

    That's crap. Do you have any idea how much they have to pay for insurance ect? BTW - peds and family docs are the loest paid of all docs.......

    I'm a peds nurse, looks like no raise for me for a long time. Great.

    You go pay $50,000/yr every year for malpractice insurance, AND pay back $200,000 in student loans, with interest, AND pay a nurse, receptionist, office rent, supplies, utilities, tax specialist, attorney and 2 people just to decipher insurance claims. Then come back and tell us how much is "too much".

    You don't deserve medical care with a totally ignorant statement like that.

  • Uh to the people who are bitching about their doctor's paying all sorts of fees.. BS!! This is precisely why so many join a group, because the group pays.... NOT THEM. DO SOME RESEARCH KIDS. YOU, as a patient, ARE GETTING SCREWED EVERY WHICH WAY BUT LEFT. Trust me.. I worked for them.
