Why doctors aren't speaking out

Original Article

Posted By: Judy W., 9/10/2022 8:28:50 AM

Dear Steve, You ask why doctors are silent. The electronic medical records (EMRs) are a ball and chain to physicians. We are tracked through them. When I wrote a prescription for Ivermectin for a patient, with informed consent (she was vaccinated), I received 5 letters threatening my medical license, my hospital privileges, and my insurance contracts. I would not have received 5 letters if I killed someone in negligence or malpractice. If I have my license pulled, I will no longer be able to help my patients. I speak to patients on a one-on-one basis, but speaking out would destroy my family.


The doctor says the public doesn't speak out in support of doctors' independence, and docs are retiring in record numbers. People want government-run health care, and within five years they will have it. God help us.

My doctor I've had for 30 years and know very well told me in private everything they do is in the computer. Even the office staff folks are monitored . This crap started in 2010.

How did so many dangerous people attain such power to control what others say? Were they there all along and just came out the cracks? The right had better start filing lawsuits and/or other means to fight back. The impact is serious as we will be losing too many doctors too soon. These gestapo like tactics will create negative impacts on both the availability & the of cost of health care. This is dangerous and is happening right before our eyes.

I would never expect my doctor to write a script that would risk his livelihood - I can get that online anyway. I do however, expect honesty. My doctor admitted that he is taking HCQ too. I do not respect a doctor who will push any patient to get vaccinated at this point. We know too much about these shots, and I expect my doctors to know even more. I do not respect a doctor who would be affected by bureaucratic incentives or threats, to the detriment of "do no harm" to your patients. I have lost any faith I ever had in the medical profession as a whole, due to their covid response. However, I have about four doctors who I highly respect because they know the vaccines were a mistake.

I recently was referred to a specialist who has his own practice, with two employees who have been with him for a long time. He does not use electronic records; everything is on paper. There are a lot of file cabinets along the wall. The copy of a scan he gave me was not emailed but postal-mailed to my doctor. The specialist's tech told me that Medicare fines him for mailing everything to them instead of emailing. This doctor had me fill out the most detailed medical history I've ever had to give, and asked me a lot of questions about it. That is, he PAID ATTENTION. I'm sorry that I didn't ask him about his decision to stay on paper.

I have to say that doctors need to share some of the blame for this. Early on, I asked my doctor how she would treat me if I got Covid and she didn’t have an answer. I asked her if she would prescribe Ivermectin and she said no. I then asked “is that you talking doc or is it your medical group.” She had a look of shame on her face. And therein lies the problem. Doctors of today all belong to large medical groups who tell them what they can and can’t do. Why go through all those years of study, expense, and sacrifice only to have a bunch of suits telling you how to do your job? Go into private practice.

Number 7 nails it. For a host of reasons centered about reimbursement, docs have sold themselves out to employers instead of being responsible professionals as intended. They might as well be asking "do you want fries with that?"

The comprehensive health care reform law enacted in March 2010 (sometimes known as ACA, PPACA, or “Obamacare”). Have you noticed how much time physicians, nurses, etc. spend posting information into a computer while you are in their presence? That's Obamacare. Thanks to POS Senator John McCain, who got out of his sick bed in Arizona, traveled to Washington, DC to cast his vote that allowed Obamacare to become federal law. All after the many times he told us he would never vote to approve Obamacare. He did this to spite Donald Trump. Governments - including medically ignorant Governors, will continue to intercede between physicians and their patients unless Congress and State Legislatures pass laws to prevent this. There's scant evidence that any of this is occurring. We will never know how many people died from COVID because of these interventions by ignorant politicians.

Private practice involves getting their own malpractice insurance, renting an office hiring nurses, keeping records and sending out bills .It involves dealing with insurance companies and getting a hospital clearance. It's just so much easier to take a nice check and show up at work on time---maybe.

My doctors have been taken over? bought out? sold out? absorbed? into medical conglomerates.When I call one in particular, the recorded voice says " press 1 for customer service ". And that's how you are perceived, as a customer, not a patient. A time clock limitation , only so many minutes allotted per patient.

Doctors have been exposed to tthe academic community for at least 20 years by the time they finish residency. And these days, there are a lot of women in academia and on med school faculties. Over-educated women tend to be very liberal, so this is the influence that doctors have. They will become slaves to the government-run healthcare system.

My primary care doctor is retiring at 62. My wife's doctor and nurse practitioner are both leaving their practice. The local hospital has bought up most of the local practices, but our records online yet does not update them. I can see what was done 6 years ago but not last year's test results. As a child of a physician, I have seen how medicine has changed over the last 50 years, and it disturbs me greatly. God help us all.

During an appointment with my doctor (who is also my friend), I asked if I should get a booster vax. He covered up his laptop camera and said "Oh yes, absolutely" while shaking his head "NO". Both of us are physicians and we wouldn't put it past our overlords to be secretly recording and reviewing our interactions.

Doctors are but employees of insurance and big pharma, which are of course extensions of Wall Street money and government control. Well paid pawns in game of life. But at least one generation removed from Marcus Wellby , know your patient kinda control ethically or otherwise over their livelihood.

What happens when the electronic medical record has the wrong information? It happens. Then try to ask someone to explain how that misinformation got into your record and the electronic medical record will record that you are a patient who complains or whatever. Try to get a new or better doctor after that happens. I read someone write that it is no longer health care; it is health harm. Another of our institutions corrupted by the technocrats.

My doctor is still all paper - prescriptions, records, everything. The ancient computer in his office is used to order supplies and keep track of appointments. He does not have a Nurse Practitioner or PA to help him. He is very old school. Now that COVID has exposed the stinking entrails of the medical industry in this country, I am grateful that I managed to find him!!

I saw this years ago with the beginning of "checklist medicine." Turn 50, get a colonoscopy (whether you need it or not), and not before 50, even if you have symptoms. You're obese if you don't conform to average weights arbitrarily set by faceless bureaucrats. My cholesterol was the same from my late 20s into my 60s, but because some arbitrary line was lowered, suddenly I have high cholesterol and I'm on statins. I get no credit whatsoever for having never smoked and seldom drink alcohol, but I'm constantly hectored about my weight. I feel like a piece of meat every time I go to the doctor. Is it any wonder my BP goes through the roof in the office?

The doctors were cowardly. They should have banded together and refused to take direction from the corrupt federal government and lived up to their oath, which is "Do no harm". They couldn't suspend hundreds and thousands of health care workers during a pandemic.

The doctor here makes an illuminating point about electronic medical records, and how they are being used. The doctor no longer makes any decisions. Medicare and Medicaid prescribes acceptable treatments, and will not pay for any treatments that do not conform. Doctors are not independent decision makers, now being employees of larger systems that make the decisions, including their medical practice, and the insurance companies. Doctors have been stripped of their professional status. The medical system has always been rife with fraud, and that remains the case. The system does not treat you, or your afflictions. It provides tests you don't need, because Medicare will pay for them. Most of the people in the lobbies are on a unnecessary test fool's errand.

This physician forgets that Drs. Simone Gold, Robert Malone, Peter McCollough and twenty or so just I can name also had families, book contracts, lucrative careers to protect as well. They took their oaths too seriously to remain silent about Obamacare, Fauci, vaccines, forced remdesivir and venting, Ivermectin, etc. We all understand there is a price to pay to stand up against the evil politics that owns medicine. There are more than a few physicians who are choosing to fight rather than quit.

I believe this doctor who wrote this letter is from California and is seeing first hand what a totalitarian government (Sacramento) can do to an independent doctor's medical practice. He warned us that this Government's Control of Doctors' Independence/speech/belief/practice is coming to an end in 5 years. My local Orthopedic Doctor here is from Canada and has told me that he sees Socialist Medicine taking root in the U.S. Kaiser Medical is a prime example of that on the West Coast. ObamaCare was the foot in the door for government run health care for everyone.

Doctors have been handcuffed regarding patient care for a couple decades now. The DEA used to threaten serious audits of a doctor's records if he prescribed more than the normal dosages of drugs for even terminal patients. This monitoring is what you get when lawyers spy on doctors and try to practice medicine without a license.

Unfair to doctor-bash. There are many of us out here who care deeply. But there are now more than 2/3 of med school graduates are women (yet they still have “women in medicine” organizations to self-congratulate and complain how hard they have it). There are also med schools popping up like crazy all over the place, and standards for admission are crashing. These smaller schools are being stuffed with low-quality, language-barrier foreign medical grads who are here to make money — definitely not to take it back and serve the country they came from. Politics, especially leftist politics, destroy everything it touches — take a look at the AAP (nearly all women, BTW), primary science journal. It is now nearly all LGBTQ, equity, trans children, racism, anti-gun). Complete trash. And our own Governor Whitmer threatened to go after our licenses if caught going against the government-approved Covid narrative, in the office or on social media. Welcome to the matriarchy.

I installed medical tracking software in the early 80s. Way back then it was billed as a positive thing for speed and accuracy in printed forms and billing. Shortly thereafter, the insurance industry became very interested in this information. Now it's the government. Computers are both good and bad.

There really is nothing new under the sun. My family observed our HMO doctors were slaves to their admin overlords back in the 1980's. For example, we had the most highly recommended pediatrician in our very large city prescribe antibiotics for eight ear infections in a 6 months for our 2-yr old son. Then, when I happened to mention ear tubes as an alternative fix, she said, 'good idea, I'll refer you to a specialist.' The specialist took one look at his records, and said, "he should have had ear tubes 5 infections ago." In hindsight, I now believe our pediatrician knew about the ear tubes the whole time, but was constrained by our HMO to limit her referrals to specialists.

Paul Ryan, the losing vice presidential candidate on the Republican Party’s all-RINO 2012 ticket, says that Donald Trump, the only Republican candidate to win the presidency between 2004 and 2020, cannot win in 2024. Ryan, of course, really hopes that Trump will not regain the presidency, for that would mean the definitive end of the controlled-opposition establishment wing of the Republican Party, in which Ryan was once a central figure. But Ryan on Thursday went beyond expressing the hope that Trump would lose to stating confidently that he would. According to the New York Post, the failed candidate, who also served as a singularly colorless and ineffective speaker of the House

Thompson let his panel-mates know that after presenting evidence they would all get the chance to enjoy “a little treat,” and showed off a tin of cupcakes,

With the midterms less than a month away, left-leaning news outlets and political commentators are resorting to dark predictions about the future of the country with warnings of imminent civil war if Republicans retake control of Congress in November. Talk of a second civil war among liberal journalists, television personalities and lawmakers has become increasingly commonplace following the raid on former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home on Aug. 8, after which liberal pundits repeatedly claimed on-air that evolving distrust for the U.S. government among Trump supporters would lead to escalated political violence. The topic resurfaced weeks later when President Biden called his predecessor and "MAGA Republicans" a threat to "the very foundations of our republic"

White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said Sunday that President Biden does not currently intend to meet with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman at the G20 summit next month in Indonesia, after the Saudi Arabia-led OPEC+ group of oil-producing nations decided to cut oil production. "He has no plans to meet with the crown prince at the G20 summit," Sullivan said on CNN. "He is focused, however, on making sure that through every engagement that he has across the board, he’s looking out for, not just the U.S., but for our allies as well." Sullivan spoke briefly about the White House’s vows to "re-evaluate" the U.S. relationship with Saudi Arabia

Democratic pollster Fernand Amandi called Florida the "MAGA Republican capital of the confederacy" during the latest episode of MSNBC’s "The Cross Connection with Tiffany Cross." The frequent MSNBC guest offered his incendiary claim as part of a panel discussion about a recent Anti-Defamation League report detailing how many of America’s domestic extremists, including those who trespassed on Capitol grounds on January 6, are from Florida. The segment clearly aimed at demonizing the Republican stronghold state governed by possible 2024 contender Ron DeSantis, a strategy that host Tiffany Cross has routinely employed on her show. Cross really leaned into it this time, introducing the discussion by calling Florida a "haven of hate"

Democrats are obsessed with former President Trump, not only that, they are terrified of him and the millions of supporters who stand behind Trump, while so few follow President Joe Biden. Former President Barack Obama is warning his Democrat colleagues to stop campaigning with a focus on Trump, saying that they need to worry about more important issues that the country faces. While speaking on the Pod Save America podcast, Obama told the hosts that his party’s obsession with Trump is not what will drive voters to vote Democrat. “The thing that I think sometimes we seem to make a mistake on, is his behavior can be so outrageous,
