There is no doubt that the healthcare system is broken. It seems that the only people who benefit from the way the current arrangement works are the drug manufacturers and insurance companies. Patients and providers are left behind as the push for profit continues to be the primary driving force behind access to medical care.
In this system, providers are encouraged to cover up symptoms with increasing numbers of prescriptions instead of addressing the underlying root of the problems. Reimbursement rates are so low, there isn’t adequate time allowed to spend with patients to truly dig down and find out why these symptoms are presenting themselves.
At Waterfront Wellness, my goal is to spend time with my patients, take a deep dive into what they are experiencing, and offer a practical path to meeting their individual health goals.
