Lives of Doctor Wives: Healthcare Reform

Healthcare Reform

Like many of you, I have heard a lot more this week about Healthcare reform and the government, and how the AMA feels about it. I realize this issue is pretty personal for all of us and will/does affect us in many different ways. It interests me to hear other physician wives opinions on this matter though. Have any of you done research into how this might effect your husband’s specialty? I have been looking over lots of articles in the past couple of days and am discovering that this could have major ramifications for those doctors who enter into Interventional Pain Management—mainly because many of the procedures are voluntary and would most likely not be covered because they might not be considered necessary treatment.
What have you been hearing about your husband’s future in medicine? Are there any parts to the healthcare reform that you truly hope they really work on to come to a better solution for everyone? What concerns you as a doctor’s wife? What concerns you as a citizen?
Let’s try to remember that this is a hard issue to discuss. I encourage you to read over your words before publishing your comment. This discussion is not meant to offend—instead I hope we all can learn from it

Anonymous Marriage Counseling said...

I am 34 old and married to a doctor, he is good on all respect but he can’t be able to concentrate on family as he was doing previously. I understand this is due to work load and many times he just satisfying their clients online all the night. Many times he got pager for an emergency calls then he go for patient treatment. Now I m getting very depressed and I tried to take Christian marriage counseling but he refused to go with me, I don’t know what I will do, please help me.
