“When choosing a healthcare provider, the consumer must be both educated and demanding. It is the healthcare consumer’s job to expect excellence over mediocrity and to know the difference”.
This is a very difficult time we are living in. People are living longer than ever and demanding more form their bodies. Along with this fact the economy is as bad as it has been in decades with people with having less financial resources to help them stay healthy. We all need to expect more from our healthcare providers. Along with that comes some responsibility. We must get educated on our health and really understand when something goes wrong how do we get it fixed and who is best able to do that. We need to treat ourselves as good as we treat our homes and our cars. We would expect nothing less than excellence for out material possessions so we need to do the same for our bodies, the most valuable thing we own. We as consumers, all of us ,must take the necessary steps to get informed about our bodies and seek out healthcare providers that are up to the challenge of providing excellent healthcare that spares no expense to ensure the highest level of quality.
