*URGENT MESSAGE TO OUR PATIENTS*
February 16, 2018
It has come to my attention that there appears to be a coordinated effort currently underway in which family physicians and internists employed by large health networks in our area are attempting to reassign our mutual heart patients to network-employed cardiologists.
It is unknown whether the physicians involved have been ordered to do this by health network executives, whether they are receiving financial incentives, or both. However, it is seems clear that this is being done to “keep everything in the system,” not in the interests of patient care but rather to generate profits for the health network.
Sarah and I have always tried to provide cardiovascular care of the highest quality for our patients. Our approach has always been to treat each person with the dignity and respect they deserve, not just as an “account number.” We have been honored to serve you, and we are committed to earning your continued trust in the future.
America is still “the land of the free and the home of the brave,” and you still have the right to choose your own cardiologist! If your physician tells you to "get a second opinion" from a cardiologist who is "in the network," we humbly ask you to take a stand against corporate greed and continue to entrust us with your heart care.
