Urge Congress To Make Health Care a Service, Not a Business!

For everyone living in the United States I encourage you to:

URGE CONGRESS TO MAKE HEALTH CARE A SERVICE AND NOT A BUSINESS.

Here is the link to to write to Congress to https://writerep.house.gov/writerep/welcome.shtml

The last I heard Congress had a dismal 9% approval rating.

Here is also the  link to find your Senator http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm

So why should you write to Congress?

Well here is what other dental professionals are saying about my website.

“I know this is a bit wordy, but our professional reputation may have become tainted because of a few who have reached national notoriety in a negative light. I don’t know how prevalent such unethical practices are, but we should all remember that patients don’t get mad at one doctor or one office, they paint the whole profession. It’s up to all of us to keep that reputation high.”

“Why should we do the ethical and get nothing while the others trample on us.”

 “Some others, he noted, have proclaimed ‘what they think is their rightful place’ within the nation’s health care system. “Not on my watch!” Dr. Calnon said emphatically, stirring applause from the delegates.”

Others have resorted to calling me a hack.

The Declaration of Indepedence states:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

As described on Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Life,_liberty_and_the_pursuit_of_happiness

John Locke, in his 1689 “A Letter Concerning Toleration,” wrote that “Civil interest I call life, liberty, health, and indolency of body; and the possession of outward things…”

William Wollaston’s 1722 book The Religion of Nature Delineated describes the “truest definition” of “natural religion” as being “The pursuit of happiness by the practice of reason and truth.”

I believe that my website lists truthful statements of which I found from my research. If you feel any of the information is inaccurate, false, or wrong then send me an email.

I firmly believe that you should have the right to make a reasonable living as a dentist or oral surgeon performing dental care; however, it is my belief than in most cases regarding healthy wisdom teeth not causing problems they should not be removed as indicated at http://www.teethremoval.com/wisdomteeth.html

I also believe patients should be able to have the right to pursue the knowledge and facts and information concerning removing wisdom teeth before having the surgery performed.

Further I believe that anyone have surgery performed would expect their healthcare provider to be making recommendations in regards to the practice of reason and truth.

Unfortunately, the current medical system is a business that is based on a fee for service model.

Don’t blame me I didn’t make the system.

The system should be changed.

The fee for service model should be eliminated. 

In addition, it is unfair to ask medical professionals to have protection from liability hanging over their heads every step of the way which prevents them from sharing medical information amongst each other which prevents high quality care.

 URGE CONGRESS TO MAKE HEALTH CARE A SERVICE AND NOT A BUSINESS.
