Doctor's are sorely needed

Doctor's are sorely needed that make house calls. Concierge doctors are four times more expensive than those that will make a house call. There are times when you need a doctor, not an expensive ER visit, or can't get to an office. It would greatly cut down on illnesses that you get from sitting in doctors' offices, or going to the ER. Anybody up for a great dose of virus? How about a nice ton of bacteria? How 'bout the flu, or worse? Aids anyone? How about TB, Merc or staph infections? Those magazines in the office are things nobody should touch. Sign-in sheets with attached pens are another non touchable item. Clip board anyone?

Since there is a massive shortage of doctors, RN's could easily do the job, and know their boundaries that P.A.'s don't know exist. I can remember when my pediatrician routinely saw me as a child if I had a fever. He had enough sense to keep you out of his office when you were contagious. Doctors knew their patients, and often got rewarded very well with a hot lunch, a free dinner a drink, or a moment to relax. Doctoring has become a business transaction...nothing more, and we've all paid the price.

You're kidding right? Police

You're kidding right? Police officers, fire fighters, and fire medics still make house calls.
