Sick of Bad Pay, Doctors Flee Germany

By Udo Ludwig

German doctors are packing their scalpels and seeking their fortunes abroad, lured by the prospect of far higher pay and driven away by stifling bureaucracy in their country's health service.

Thats strange......

When I go to a US hospital I see doctors from India, Phillipines, China, Eastern Europe

But no Germans, French or British

Doesn't seem like they are flocking to leave those "Socialized" systems

Now that their education has been paid for by the GERMAN people, you mean?

They loved socialism when it was paying them, but now that it's time for them to pay back, they're suddenly capitalists,?

Typical

Well it's not really that easy in my opinion. Both sides have advantages and disadvantages, but the German doctors are obviously upset.

Wait till our new health care system kicks in.The key word in this is wait because that's what we all will end up doing,waiting for what's left of our Doctors who decided for some reason to stick around.Wait for hours or weeks even to see a specialist.I am hoping for the best that a few Dems will wake up from the brainwashing "YES WE CAN" Mantra and decide not to vote for this.Hoping for the best but expecting the worst.

I rent a house from a German doctor on St. George Island Florida. He paid 2 million for the lot and 2 million for the home.
He ain't leaving Germany. Go to Tampa all the way south west Florida past Fort Myers and Bonita Springs and see all the professional Germans that own property there. They all work in Germany.
But who could blame any doctor for wanting to practice medicine here. Americans are dumb asses. We pay 60% more than anyone else and are some of the unhealthiest people in the world.

Our main problem is we have too many specialists now.
4% of Americans use 54% of ALL health care dollars and it is specialized medicine that is killing us financially.
We do not have health care here. We have disease care and we are the best at it because we are a very unhealthy and diseased nation.

In your head
You can expect more of your claims to be denied! Medicare denies twice as many claims than some of those evil insurance companies!
