State of the State RI

Guests: David Kahn, MD, Kahn@feelings.com and Alexandra Tien, MD, atien@cox.net
Host: Richard August
Doctors Kahn and Tien had commentaries published in the Providence Journal within days of each other about the challenges of practicing medicine in Rhode Island. Tien asserts that RI is one of the worst places to practice medicine. Kahn suggests that the pressures placed on medical doctors by insurance companies and government is contributing to the loss of medical personnel. Such pressures have reduced the time doctors actually spend attending to their patients. It is a difficult balancing act, which is causing many doctors to question if they should continue to practice medicine.
