AMA: Physicians Outraged at Today's Steep Medicare Cut
Date:3/1/2010

"The sad truth is that we will no longer be able to see Medicare patients who come to establish care with our group. We won't fire our existing patients I hope. The alternative is to close the doors. To say that this is discouraging is an understatement. I went into medicine with the ideals of serving my patients with a covenant to provide the highest quality care. I can't do this with the cruel cynical actions of our Congress. I am ashamed of our system. I most likely will quit the practice of medicine."

Urologist, Chattanooga, TN

"We are now forced to cease seeing new Medicare patients and may have to opt out altogether. This will be a devastating turn of events for us and our community."

Psychiatrist, New York and Pennsylvania

"I plan to retire as soon as possible if the Medicare cuts go through. Most of my patients will be unable to find another competent psychiatrist who takes Medicare. I am the only one of my colleagues who takes Medicare now."
