Too Many Doctors in the House - New York Times

Too Many Doctors in the House - New York Times: "How can it be that more spending and greater physician effort does not lead to better health or to improvements in patient satisfaction? One explanation may be that when more doctors are around, patients spend more time in hospitals, and hospitals are risky places. More than 100,000 deaths a year are estimated to be caused by medical mishaps."
Doctors are sickness specialists - not wellness specialists ! While I won't say that more doctors = more illness, it is true that more doctors does not mean more health !
