What a Good Doctor Does - Hats Off to Dr. Lorna Stuart

Headline: 'So many people ... fall through the cracks' After 22 years in private practice and seeing people "kicked around by the system," Dr. Lorna Stuart found herself frustrated with the number of insurance companies and the rules and restrictions that came with them.

If only more doctors would do this, we could solve the health care crisis no matter who gets into office. That is, until they outlaw doctors from taking cash payments outside of a mandated "universal" payer system. What would Hillary do with this doctor? Probably imprison her for showing that we do not need socialized medicine to provide care to all those in need. Imagine what it would be like if you didn't have to deal with government and HMO's in the care of your health and that of your children.

"Since there's no need to spend a lot of time doing paperwork, we have time to talk to the patient and really hear what they're saying," says Dr. Lorna Stuart. "So the patients go away feeling they've been heard, that they've been helped."

It's a beautiful thing. This is what Dr. Ron Paul has been saying since the beginning on this health care crisis issue. What's radical about removing 3rd parties from what essentiallly is supposed to be a private contractual interaction (that between doctor and patient). You choose the doctor.

Or do you think that it's normal in a free society that government should choose your doctor for you or in any other way limit your choice of health care? Please explain.
