In a health care environment where focus increasingly shifts from providing good patient care to the cost of providing that care, patients ultimately suffer. As insurance companies insist on paying less for rendered services and covering services under increasingly narrower definitions, physicians are forced to spend less time with individual patients in order to see an adequate number of patients each day to ensure financial survival of their medical practice. Cutting appointment times means that doctors no longer have ample time to get to know patients sufficiently enough to provide good continuity of care. Choosing to treat patients under insurance company guidelines means that patients are treated for a collection of symptoms, but often have underlying causes of pain and illness that go untreated. For Dr. Shane Patterson, spending less time with patients and issuing diagnoses under insurance limitations was simply not an option. To treat patients according to his standard of care, Dr. Shane Patterson established Osteopathic Health Care Associates, where he has time to let patients tell their stories, leading to a greater level of understanding.
