“Loyalty and honesty are key to improving transparency in healthcare” by Matthew D. Rifkin, MD, was posted on Kevin MD today.
“From a patient perspective, the healthcare industry is a confusing, money-hungry monster that is supposed to be able to fix the illusive medical issues they face. They are operating in a state of flat out fear. Transparency in the system is a good start to helping patients sort through their emotions and confusion. This is why it’s important for physicians [and dentists] to enter the conversation that patients are having in their minds about price and quality.”
