In spite of tumultuous healthcare changes since 2010, physicians still highly regard the doctor-patient relationship. A sacred trust remaining central to the daily practice of medicine, some doctors now voice concern over reduced actual time spent with patients.
One reason for this uneasiness is the overwhelming amount of Obamacare-driven paperwork. The resulting bureaucracy is outlined in a USA Today column on June 22, 2014, by North Little Rock Arkansas Neurologist, Kathryn Chenault. The red tape increases each year, according to Dr. Chenault. She is now thwarted by Obamacare forms coming from nation’s capital, which more so require the interpretive skills of lawyers and administrators, according to the doctor’s USA Today column.
