small town doctor spurs economy

i got an interesting summary of my prescribing habits from a national mail order pharmacy today.  apparently i have written 2,609 prescriptions in just 6 months.  that's a lot of prescriptions!  and that is only one pharmacy.  i think i should be recognized by the white house for the small but critical role i am playing in keeping our economy running.  but it also informed me that i prescribe 0.7 fewer medications per member compared to my peers.  so maybe i'm acutally slacking a little...


  1. Yeah, sometimes I feel that my doctors like to see me come in so they can up their prescription quota ;o)

  2. Allways remember “The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient who has the disease”
    William Osler quotes (Canadian Physician, 1849-1919)
