Growing state and federal government regulations and insurance company mandates are stealing time Texas physicians should spend with our patients. This is unacceptable. Every minute my colleagues and I spend with a patient is a minute that matters.
Physicians have something in common with one another; their deep drive to care for patients. Watch as Texas doctors describe what inspires them to train for years and to do what they do.
My colleagues and I are committed to caring for the people of Texas. This is what we have trained for and have wholeheartedly dedicated ourselves to – it is our passion. Every minute we spend with a patient results in improving health, healing a wound, providing comfort, or in some cases, saving a life. These are minutes that matter. At the heart of every decision we make are people – our patients. It’s an honor and a privilege to be invited into their lives.
Texas physicians are passionate about people. Patients. Young and old. Rich and poor. People who want to hit balls and read books and sing songs and blow out birthday candles. People who know that every minute with their doctor matters. Each of these moments serve as a reminder of why we do what we do. Why we’ve trained the way we have. For patients. It’s an honor and a privilege to be invited into their lives, one caring minute at a time.
Established in 1853, the Texas Medical Association, the nation’s largest and one of the oldest and most powerful state medical societies, speaks out for more than 50,000 physician and medical student members across the state in our commitment to improve the health of all Texans.
