Florida Spine Surgeon Alfred Bonati, M.D. Announces Results of National Poll Showing America's Doctors Oppose a Government-Run Health Care Plan
Date:8/20/2009

Florida spine surgeon Alfred Bonati, M.D. announced the results of a nonpartisan national poll commissioned by the American Society of Medical Doctors (ASMD) that shows physicians are unwilling to accept new patients covered by a government-run health care plan. Dr. Bonati announced the poll results at a press conference earlier today in Washington, DC.

Hudson, FL (PRWEB) August 20, 2009 -- Florida spine surgeon Alfred Bonati, M.D. announced the results of a nonpartisan national poll commissioned by the American Society of Medical Doctors (ASMD) that shows physicians are unwilling to accept new patients covered by a government-run health care plan. Dr. Bonati announced the poll results at a press conference earlier today in Washington, DC.

The poll conducted on August 7, 2009 by WRS Opinion Research on behalf of the ASMD shows that:

 
  • 70 percent of specialty doctors oppose current Congressional and White House proposals for health care reform;
  • 66 percent believe that a government-run health insurance plan would restrict doctors' ability to give the best advice and offer the best care possible to their patients; and
  • More than 60 percent would not accept new patients with government insurance.
Dr. Bonati, who serves as the Chairman of the ASMD, said, "As a physician, the results of this poll are not surprising to me. Any doctor who has ever dealt with Medicare knows that government coverage severely limits our abilities to deliver care that best fits the needs of the patient and the patient's family. We know that government coverage does not allow for flexibility, creativity, or sometimes, even compassion."

"I hope this research will serve as a wake-up call to policy makers," Dr. Bonati said. "Doctors are against the creation of government-run health insurance and many of us will not accept new patients with that type of coverage."

Dr. Bonati is an acclaimed orthopedic surgeon who specializes in advanced laser spine surgery. Dr. Bonati is the founder of The Bonati Institute® located in Hudson, Florida. He is also the driving force behind the formation of the American Society of Medical Doctors (ASMD), an association that works to keep the American health care system focused on the relationship between physicians and their patients without government interference. He patented The Bonati ProceduresSM, a series of surgical techniques that treat lumbar, thoracic and cervical spine problems using instruments designed by Dr. Bonati at The Bonati Institute. Dr. Bonati has traveled the world and witnessed firsthand various government-controlled health care systems and hospitals in many other countries.
