Affordable Care Act Forcing Good Doctors into Corporate Hospitals.

The Cost of Healthcare since the Affordable Care Act continues to sky rocket while patient care suffers and patients bear more of the costs. Private practices are being forced out of business due to costs mandated by this law. The beneficiary of ObamaCare is the corporate hospital system. Hospitals have a tendency to gouge patients with their prices and push them out the door. Everywhere we look, hospitals are cutting corners on patient care. Dr. George poses the question, is your doctor really independent or are they on the payroll of a hospital? If you don’t know the answer, you could be on the hook for all the extra costs that hospitals add on.

Dr. George talks about the importance informed consent. A sundry of questions need to be answered before your doctor proceeds with any treatment. Hospitals are turning doctors into soldiers for profit, its no longer about helping people, it’s about margins and liability.
