Many doctors today are overwhelmed by process overhead and have less and less freedom to think and dedicate more time when situation calls for it. They are also under pressure to stick to the standard protocols and guidelines to decrease health care costs.
While these protocols and guidelines are designed to help the majority a minority always exists that benefits less from these standards.
