Doctor-patient relationships saved by direct primary care

It wasn’t until I faced the most profound health-care decision of my life that I truly grasped the impact of the doctor-patient relationship’s absence on health care in America.

Obamacare made an already broken system worse by destroying the patient-doctor relationship, increasing costs and extending patient wait times. Now, Democrats admit the current system is broken so they can try to force through Medicare for All. It would only pour more bureaucratic fuel on the health-care dumpster fire that the government created in the first place.

My story is proof that there is a better way. We must put patients back at the center of American health care. Congress should do all it can to get out of the way so more people can rediscover the life-saving value of a doctor-patient relationship.
