My friend “Halbstein” has started his own blog – American Citizen. Recently he and I sat for lunch and talked about the politics of health care in the United States and we reviewed a very interesting article together. He has commented about this on his blog and I recommend people interested in the costs of health care in the USA to browse it. Very revealing …go to his blog for info.
In response to his post I waxed lyrical about the movie Field of Dreams, Burt Lancaster and my doctor when I was growing up. Halbstein took it one step further…and does it in a way that might stimulate you all to remember what medicine used to be like. While technology and medicine have advanced I have to ask the question whether patient care and doctor-patient relationships have balanced it by going the other way? Read about Dr Lipmann.
