Time for a Check-Up on Your Health Care--let's talk Doctor Visits

     The theme of a new movie, ESCAPE FIRE, talks about alternatives to our current way of managing patients (as created by our current USA health care system to date).  One of the main points of the film is that the current system discourages doctors from taking time with their patients by defining productivity by the volume of patients and illnesses treated.


Have you visited a doctor in the last two years who did not have time for you? e.g. time to listen to you and talk to you?  

How often has this been the case?


Every time I saw the doctor, the doctor had time for me.
Every time I visited a doctor, the doctor was extremely hurried and had no time.
I don't remember.
Often the doctor was hurried but occasionally the doctor had time for me.
Rarely did the doctor not have time for me.
Sometimes the doctor was hurried; other times the doctor had time.
