Are Psychiatrists Just Legal Drug Pushers

March 7th, 2011 · No Comments

A recent article in the New York Times about Dr Gardiner Harris stated that psychiatrists can’t make enough money with regular “talk therapy”. Dr. Harris stated that he treats 1200 people now in mostly 15 minute visits for prescription adjustments.

A 2005 government survey found that just 11 percent of psychiatrists provided talk therapy to all patients.

one excerpt from this article . . .
He could have accepted less money and could have provided time to patients even when insurers did not pay, but, he said, “I want to retire with the lifestyle that my wife and I have been living for the last 40 years.

Wow, isn’t this great – he is more concerned about his lifestyle than truly helping people get well.

Another example of the health care system totally broken.
