The Art of Medicine

In today’s ever changing healthcare, physicians are either not taught or don’t have time to think critically, thus rely on spontaneous mechanism of their intuitive autopilot.  Lower reimbursement payouts, insurance denials and complexities, higher cost of doing business, fulfilling accreditation requirements, rising malpractice insurance, and personal debt, all amount to physician’s unhappiness and burnout. To still make a living, physicians must see 30-80 patients a day to continue operating there business and make enough living to sustain their families. The abandonment of analytical process has plagued the medical community, especially when diagnosing or treating Lyme patients.  

Dr. Frid decided to go the other route. She applies the analytic process to all her patients. This is a conscious, slower, and deliberate process that is more reliable.
