While ideal clinics are opening all across America, some doctors accuse me of practicing “Alice-in-Wonderland” medicine. When ridiculed, I often wonder: Why?
After all, who could be against ideal health care?
Even the Journal of Family Practice praises our innovative community-focused model. And now our clinic is featured in the newest edition of Harvard School of Public Health’s Renegotiating Health Care, a text that examines major trends with the potential to change the dynamics of health care. Yet some journals reject ideal care. Why? One editor responds” It’s “too utopian.” Uh. . . really?
Robert F. Kennedy acknowledged: “One-fiftth of all people are against everything all of the time.”
I think that means four out of five Americans are ready for utopian health care. Are you?
