When I was a growing you had one family Doctor,provided service when one was expecting he delivered you at birth took out your tonsils set a broke arm, removed your appendix & made house calls in any type of weather.
I don’t know when the AMA got the brainstorm to eliminate house calls,but they did just that ” Dial 911 and get yourself over to the Emergency room is what they tell you now. If you have no money or coverage they wont see you. What ever happened to the Hippocratic oath, out the window along with house calls The Doctor was once the most respected of all individuals has made themselves no better than a Bum merely out for the cash reward . My parents grew up in the 1920′s in the poorest neighborhood in N.Y.C. ”Williamsburg ”and the Doctor lived in the neighborhood that he practiced in. He was a professional a college graduate and could have live anywhere but he chose out of dedication to live where he practiced among illiterate factory workers now that’s respect and dedication!
