Seeking grown-up care
MDs' unease found to leave many disabled adults with pediatricians
Quote :
The report found that, among other reasons, many internists avoid disabled patients because of uneasiness with them.

Also, many doctors feel that insurers do not pay enough to compensate them for the longer time it often takes to listen to - and care for - these patients.

What ever happened to the hippocratic oath!

I never really gave this much thought before. I do know that Children's Hospital takes care of a lot of patients that are adults that were treated there as children for their disablities.
