Whatever your political persuasion and feelings about health care reform, the legislation passed by Congress and signed by the President will be a fact that we’ll all have to deal with in the coming months.
As the dust settles on the issue, some aspects of the legislation are clear, but others will take some time to understand and implement.
I can assure you on three important fronts:
- First, at Gastrointestinal Associates, we will continue to be a practice that patients can depend on for accurate and comprehensive information about the health care practices that affect them.
- We also will work very hard to reinforce the bond between patient and physician. To us, that relationship is sacred, and we do not believe that government or anyone else should interfere with the long-standing relationship that exists there.
- And finally, we will continue to provide the highest level of gastrointestinal care and expertise to our patients.
The American medical system, despite its flaws, is still the best in the world, and our physicians represent the best of that system.
This isn’t the first time, and it won’t be the last, that we all will have to deal with change in health care policy, but the points above are our pledge to our patients.
And in a world of change, you can count on that.
