Hughesair (Inflection Point)

Retired physician and air taxi operator, science writer and part time assistant professor, these editorials cover a wide range of topics. Mostly non political, mostly true, I write more from experience than from research and more from science than convention. Subjects cover medicine, Alaska aviation, economics, technology and an occasional book review. The Floatplane book is out there. I am currently working on Hippocrates a History of Medicine and Globalism. Enjoy!

Deregulate the Doctors

 Doctors quit medicine in droves while medical schools modified curriculum to accommodate the new guideline regulated standard care. Doctors quit because regulation, the greed and overriding authority of hospitals, medical bureaucracy and insurance companies interfered with their patient care and medical judgment.

Guidelines favoring expensive treatments without adequate diagnosis or even interest in correct diagnosis, led to lower life expectancy, erosion of professionalism, science, trust and the ranking of American medicine throughout the industrial world.
