Have you been to other doctors that barely look at your during your appointment? Have you noticed most of them spend more time looking at their computer screens and typing? You’re not alone. Recent studies have found that doctors spend an average of 43% of their time on data entry and just 28% directly caring for patients. Have they asked you if you have a fire extinguisher in your house?! While that’s good to have, what does that have to do with your health? Not much of standard medicine seems to make sense these days, so why should the questions they ask you and the information they’re collecting? The entire patient-physician encounter being largely computerized does NOT replace the mind, the soul, and the caring of a live doctor! Do you agree?
