Last Friday morning, I joined a group of osteopathic physicians that met with California State Senator Joel Anderson. He is the Vice Chair of the Health committee. There were several issues that different members of our group brought up, but the one thing that I think is so important (and gets often overlooked in the policy discussions) is the physician-patient relationship. Anything that gets in the way of the physician’s time with the patient, in my opinion, should be scrutinized carefully. The more administrative and regulatory layers that are added to medical requirements will, by definition, cause the physician (me) or an assistant (both of which must be paid for by the patient or the insurer) to engage in work not directly benefiting the patient. If you have a suggestion about legislative issues regarding health care, you can contact Senator Anderson at the following link: district36.cssrc.us/content/my-offices
