Hello to all,
Its been a long , strange healthcare journey, and, for whatever reason, I am still standing. Have survived the medical corporate barrage, and just trying to practice as always.
I Still listen and talk to patients, but seems like I am becoming a dinosaur ( Hmm, might be a good name for a new practice) but I am sure many of you are feeling the same.WHO KNEW THAT 10 -20 YEARS AGO WERE THE GOOD OLD DAYS ?
Well, I am getting involved in Telemedicine and this link will hopefully explain this new venue.
This allows patients old or new to be seen by me via a Health type of Skype, HIPPA secured,and I can treat patients ,except for Class 2 meds, with a modest visit cost.
All new to me, so not sure how this will work, but will allow me to see patients without having to depend on an office at this time. I still do House Calls , no insurance , no hassles , just you and me wherever and when schedule fits.
And as always, thanks for all the support over the years. It sure was not my intention to close my practices. Shit happens( you expected me not curse all of a sudden?)
Talk to you later
Dr. Stu Rosan
THIS IS JUST ONE TIP FROM MARK CUBAN on running successful companies.
“Make the job fun for employees. Keep a pulse on the stress levels and accomplishments of your people and reward them. My first company, MicroSolutions, when we had a record sales month, or someone did something special, I would walk around handing out $100 bills to salespeople. At Broadcast.com and MicroSolutions, we had a company shot. The Kamikaze. We would take people to a bar now and then and buy one or ten for everyone. At MicroSolutions, more often than not we had vendors cover ”
Amazing how many places I have worked at just don’t get it. You can ask my staffs from my practices , and they will say I got it.
SPECIALDOCS: Physicians at the Front Lines Increasingly Suffer from Burnout, According to New ReportsOctober 28, 2014
Totally agree. In My journey past couple of years, I have been treated more as a number than a physician. It is very hard to stay in medicine when recruiters, new owners, new managers and administrators have very little health care experience and savvy; don’t want to entertain recommendations from doctors who already have gone thru the wars many times and who have learned from our mistakes.
The question I have to these people is,” Do you want us to treat you, when you become a patient, the way you treat us or do want us, the physicians to treat you as caring , reasonable doctors?

October 24, 2014 – An article in the October 22 Chicago Tribune highlights a phenomenon physicians know all too well—burnout, a long-term reaction to stress that includes emotional exhaustion, a sense of depersonalization and a lack of a sense of personal accomplishment. Particularly prevalent among primary care physicians, who then leave medicine, the burnout factor may worsen the current doctor shortage at the very point when many more are needed to care for aging Baby Boomers and new patients insured through the Affordable Care Act.
According to research compiled by a number of professional organizations, the problem results from challenges within the healthcare system that diminish autonomy, make it difficult to establish relationships with patients, require excessive documentation, a sense of isolation…all the factors that prompted our Special Docs physicians to make the change to concierge medicine.
While transitioning to the concierge model was not mentioned—and…
