Dear California Doctor:
We would like to offer you an opportunity to get off the treadmill.
First, we would like to say how much we appreciate your intelligence and your heart. It takes a very special person to devote his or her life to helping children and families.
Second, we want you to know that like you, we care about our families’ health and we want to make informed decisions that are based on best practices and grounded in the published medical literature.
We are a group of parents and families (some without children, some considering having children in the future) who have come together for a common purpose. We are seeking a physician to care for our families. We are seeking a physician who is not afraid to practice individualized medicine. We are seeking a physician who will listen to us, take family medical history into consideration, and who is willing to consider the published medical literature (even if we bring it to you and you haven’t seen it before) to make truly informed decisions about our healthcare.
We have done our research and we realize that a majority of physicians are dissatisfied and disillusioned with the medical system. The increased paperwork and loss of autonomy as a result of HMOs and The Affordable Care Act (aka “Obamacare”) are frustrating for us as patients; we can only imagine what it must mean for you. We know that you did not go into medicine because you wanted to be controlled and dictated to by a bunch of bean-counters.
Please. Do not leave the profession you were called to.
We would like to offer you an opportunity to become the doctor you always dreamed of being: A caring physician who listens to and works with your patients.
We are a group of (x-number) parents and families, residing in (number/name) counties. We want to hire you.
We would like to meet with you and discuss your financial needs and expectations. We would also like to tell you about our needs and expectations, which will include working as a team for the best medical outcomes for our children, our aging parents, and our families.
If this proposition interests you, please contact us at your earliest convenience.
