  1. Thomas Joseph Hussman

    A queer crack smoker became the POTUS. He created a health care system that turned out to be a fraud. He made us pay for a product undelivered, and then penalized us if we objected to the payment. Then he visited the President of Russia and patted him on his leg while promising more Soviet flexiblity. Today in the USA hard drugs are crippling the youth. The health care system never worked as promised, and the USA is fully engaged in a proxy war with Russia. A promise to keep your doctor? A promise of more flexibility with Russia? Millions of needy illegal aliens are entering the USA because they were led to believe the fake news about a shining city on a hill. There is no shining city, and the USA federal government is badly malfunctioning. Is there a “Plan B?” Be careful if you talk against the government; you may be arrested for what you say. This isn’t freedom my friends.

  2. I think that the increase in LACK OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY and increase in mental/physical illness in the population are related, resulting in more people needing to be seen. Just my theory. Aging of the population certainly impacts the appointment shortage situation as well as increases in both the Medicaid and Medicare populations. But overall declines in mental and physical health of the population are probably partially due to decreased fitness, a trend that I recall JFK being concerned about back in the day. On another topic (speaking from personal experience), small offices do deal with the “no show” situation by keeping a list of people “on standby” to call to fit in if there are last minute cancellations. But you cannot do that for true “no shows” because you don’t know that they are a “no show” until they don’t show up, and that is too late to fill that appointment slot.
