I appreciate the civil discussion! Ultimately i disagree with you and you disagree with me, we're just looking at the situation through different sides of the glass lol. I do respect your opinion and perspective as a patient and understand that it can be frustrating to have to wait for an appointment you scheduled.

I understand what you're saying however....Most docs didn't get into medicine for the money (some did). I just feel that you should be financially rewarded for spending literally a DECADE (often more) of the best years of your life working absurd hours training to improve the lives of others. If you schedule 2 pts/hr and one is medicare/medicaid (an ever-increasing amount) you are basically breaking even or losing money when considering overhead costs. At the end of the day you have to make money and seeing a low number of pts isn't feasible, which is why you are seeing more and more docs become hospital employees rather than be self-employed. At the hospital they will have an administrator who knows nothing about medicine breathing down their neck to see more and more pts to make the hospital money. eventually we all will be going to large practices/pt mills and hopefully get 10 minutes of time with the doc. Again, before you blame the docs try to understand the external pressures and costs that have influenced the way medicine is practiced.

You Shouldn't blame docs for this without understanding healthcare economics and the costs associated with medical education and running a practice that essentially forces docs (especially family med docs) to schedule a pt every 15 minutes. It essentially has become out of their control

Wolford has rubbed a lot of area coaches the wrong way by saying there isn't any local talent in the Ytown area. He needs to mend some fences and start keeping the local talent around!

Cool story....

I respect that he's a captain but the best player should play. Kwon and Grant are comparable in the run game but Grant is not nearly as instinctive or fast as Kwon in coverage. Considering that our D Line is very good, teams are going to try to throw on us so we can't have Grant out there as a liability in coverage. My 2 cents
