The New York Times article reports that doctors are abandoning the race-through-too-many-patients model. Like the New York practices featured in the article, Proactive Chiropractic in San Francisco spends 30-60 minutes with a patient 1:1 with the doctor focusing on the root of the problem instead of shuffling you around.
One doctor in the article states: “Could I have helped some people without specialists and tests? Absolutely… would it have saved the patient and the insurance company both money? Absolutely. Is the system set up for the best care and cost efficiency? Absolutely not.”
ProActive Chiropractic provides:
- Longer visits
- More interaction with the doctor
- Cuts overall healthcare costs
- Saves you time by avoiding waiting rooms and the managed healthcare shuffle
