Kris Held,MD @kksheld

Drs are literally walking out of this talk on implementing,complying with Obamacare.We are men and women of the mind not mindless drones. 1:37 PM - 21 Apr 2013

Dr. Kristin Held, a San Antonio-based opthamologist, is live-tweeting the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery Government Relations session. The conference is being held this weekend in San Francisco.

The topic of the Government Relations session is complying with and implementing Obamacare. Dr. Held doesn’t like what’s she’s hearing, and she’s not the only one. Indeed, almost all the doctors have walked out of the meeting.

Guess the organizers must have expected Obama voters.

To all: Make certain you know the difference between an optometrist or an ophthalmologist.

Freegards,

Ophthalmologists is correct spelling. Optometrists are salivating. They don’t attend med school but want to perform procedures and give meds like real docs - they are even called Dr so most people don’t know the difference . Obama will just allow them to cut open your eye with no training.

We should all hope to take bodacious Obamas on their graves.

Actually, but for opthamologists this country would have millions more blind folks unable to care for themselves. These people SAVE OUR SOCIETY hundreds of billions of real dollars.

Obama and his running dog lackeys have no ability to understand their usefulness.

You’d think journalists would at least spell ophthalmologist correctly if they’re writing about them.

A huge swath of the general public voted for this guy. I'm sorry, but I just can't feel sorry for them.

My cardiologist,a senior staff member at one of Boston’s major hospitals,told me when I saw him earlier this year that he was originally intending to keep practicing for another 5 years at least but thanks to OsamaObamaCare he’s retiring at the end of this year.And he’s a liberal democrat.He told me that the mumblings among senior physicians with whom he works is very negative indeed and many have,like him,moved up their retirement dates.

LOVE to see this kind of push back from REAL doctors!

My Grandpa lost his sight due to Mac Degen. Dad is fighting the same battle these days - as will I in the (all too soon) future.

We LOVE our doctors...for now and for as long as we can keep them!

I’m not ‘looking forward’ to my Golden Years of blindness in an 0bamaCareCenter. I expect to be abused on a daily basis - and the random beatings and theft from unskilled immigrant workers will be the LEAST of my worries!

HOW I HATE THESE PEOPLE! WORST. PRESIDENT. EVER. WORST. CONGRESS. EVER.

They’ll merely do like they’ve done in other socialist health systems, import doctors from countries who are willing to work for less money.

********
My GP (while in his 50’s) and his PA wife retired not long after Obamacare was enacted. No way he was going to let the government dictate to him how to run his medical practice. While this was not a good thing for me, I totally understood and agreed with his decision.

“Guess the organizers must have expected Obama voters.”

I expect that Obama was able to at least buy-off neutrality from this bunch...so they expected to at least have a polite audience.

Well, they know what’s in the bill now, and they don’t appear all that happy.

As one who spent 20 years in administration at a large (and famous) hospital...and as one who still has contacts in the administrative ranks at that hospital...and as one who recently had the experience I chronicled above...I can assure that we *are* "so screwed" if OsamaObamaCare is allowed to become fully implemented.

When the government involves itself into medicine, it starts to control how much doctors earn, and what tests they can order, and what methods they can use for treatment.Thus, doctors become the equivalent of slaves.

Very possible. California is going to allow CNAs, auto mechanics, etc. perform abortions due to the shortage of doctors desiring to kill babies.
