PMID:  12122834     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The present day practice of medicine is cause of considerable malaise for physicians. This article will invoke the ancient proverb, "Physician Treat Thyself". In other words this article addresses the problems from a diagnostic and therapeutic perspective, working toward a permanent cure. The history of medical practice groups, in-office surgery, and ancillary services is reviewed. The co-morbidity of health maintenance organizations, Evaluation and Management requirements, and cost shifting are mentioned. Finally a list of symptoms and the appropriate therapeutic measures are administered to control costs, increase income, and re-establish some form of authority in the practice of medicine.
