Dr. Andrew Weil, M.D., is on Larry King tonight.
Very insightful, as always:
As an American, you have a right to good health care that is effective, accessible, and affordable, that serves you from infancy through old age, that allows you to go to practitioners and facilities of your choosing, and that offers a broad range of therapeutic options.
We currently have an expensive system that is not making people well.
While t here
has been tremendous debate over access and payment, there has been less focus on the content of health care.
Without a change in that content, we will never have a sustainable system; all attempts at reform will be taken down by unmanageable costs.
