While the primary purpose of a micro-practice is to give the patient better care and better service. It is also to improve the life and health of the doctor.
Many doctors find themselves feeling “burned out” in their career. The business of healthcare can be abusive to doctors. Insurance companies, hospital and clinic bureaucracies, legal and law enforcement scrutiny. Poorly written software designed to maximize profit at the expense of the time and effort of doctors. There are many corporate entities who want to take advantage of doctors. They use doctors with little regard for their health and sanity.
The concept of the micro-practice is the solution.
Therefore, to find freedom, the doctor must let go of the false security of salary and benefits. First, walk away from the complexities of the broken system. The healthcare system is causing patients to get less time and attention from their doctors. It is making the doctors miserable. Second, become aware of the fact that it can be much more simple. Finally, look for examples of doctors who are successfully practicing in a simpler fashion. Then, if you are a doctor, you will see that you can do it too.
