That being said I'm looking for providers to take their fair share of 
it. I've got an ongoing problem right now where I asked for help for an 
overworked doctor and they've had an issue on it every since with me.

If that is a response to fixing things, why do you think that we'd feel 
that doctors should police themselves any longer. Yes there are issues 
but lets fix it together. If it is a doctor who needs to learn more, 
then lets do that and help that doctor and their patients out. If the 
system is an issue, fix the part in it that the system has a problem with.


and for the love of heaven someone do something about MOC. That's an 
abomination to every one but the guys admin'ing it, making 5x what my 
internist is making and she does NOT deserve that. Slapping change that 
doesn't help the people in the trenches is useless and spending a crap 
load of $$$ and time that could be put to better use for doctors or 
healthcare systems should be the focus.

While we are at it - use patients that are somewhat savvy. If they read 
Oprah and Dr. Weil, steer them to something else. Those of us who save 
articles from UpToDate, ClinicalKey and several publications and get a 
medical textbook before the medical libraries do: we can be your best 
friends. We also are free labor.  ;)
