With the “Affordable Care Act” now reality, physicians as always, must adapt.

There are some who will adapt by growing their offices to try improve efficiency. I have run many Internal Medicine offices over 35 years and I can say that at least for myself, when the size gets to greater than 3 physicians, the efficiencies always tend to get lost in a new larger “corporate” inefficiency. Just can’t avoid it.

There are other very traditional ways to improve medical practices and one of the best for the marketplace is offering services not offered by other physicians. There are therefore more patients or “competition” for the doc’s special services and even with “fixed” fees, there is generally a better business to be had.

So, you all know where this is going. Doctors should learn as much as they can about Medical Cannabis and bring it into their mainstream practices and TELL PEOPLE ABOUT IT! If you build it, they will come. For sure.

Many patients currently do not have primary care physicians, as I discussed in my last blog. Now with the Affordable Care Act, many more new patients will be able to have insurance and they will have to assign a primary care doctor.

Consider adding Cannabinoids to your treatment and financial plan.

Allan Frankel, MD Dr Allan Frankel is one of the few physicians in the US who truly understands Cannabis as a medicine. All treatments suggested have been well studied. Every patient seen by Dr Frankel is given a personally created Treatment Plan created with the patient's specific issues defined. Plant medicine requires "tuning" of the dosing. Dr Frankel works with his patients thru a messaging portal. The use of this portal, allows quick and simple follow up contact with Dr Frankel. Patients are not charged for these messages, as this is how Dr Frankel has learned what he has learned. Follow up appointments in person or by phone/video are also available when needed
