I might be ignorant in this area, but don't they have assistants to enter this stuff? 

I hope these doctors can type fast. I've seen so many coworkers struggle with entering electronic data because they type slow, but I love it. I would enter my counseling notes as I was talking to my clients; it was faster for me and saved me from hand cramps. The clinic I go to for primary care has computers in each room allowing the medical assistants and physicians to enter information while talking to patients.

I go to the doctor regularly (diabetes management so min 4x a year with my endo, 1x a yr with my GP, 1x a year for ob/gyn, 1x a year for each kid, PT for a condition I had) and ALL of them used computers proficiently.  My 60+ yo endo and GP both just bring in a laptop, while the PT has laptops on rolling carts, kids' doc has computer in each room.

All of them are very good at talking to us, looking us in the eye, asking questions, then putting stuff in the computer as necessary.  Haven't felt like they were too busy on the computer to have a good appointment.

And, BTW - didn't they all used to have folders, and write all this crap down?  What's the difference between writing and typing?

I guess some of them are writing notes and inputting the info later. A lot of counselors I knew did this. I recommend that anyone in the healthcare field learn how to touch type and use online games to increase speed. I looked at my clients as I was typing and was able to respond. You need to be computer literate and have multitasking skills these days.

Maybe mine aren't doing the actual coding - they're taking notes and whatnot, and then the office staff can do all of the coding later.  Not sure, but it's just not a problem for my family.

Totally depends there too.  My dad has been going to the VA for the last 6 years here in San Diego, and has had nothing but fantastic care.  So weird how this problem seems to be regional.  CA is great for the most part.  Not sure why they can't replicate this through the whole system?

Not sure but I actually just switched facilities because the last one was no good. My new doc and facility is better but still pretty dismissive of my concerns...

It might be a talent pool problem.

But why would CA as a whole be a good system, with a lot less complaints, and other states have terrible ones, and then everything in between?

I think becoming a physicians assistant would be a more ideal career choice.
-2 year school(after bachelor's)
-less stressful job
-still make 6 figures(depending on different factors obviously)

Agreed. I know many depressed Doctors. If you're gonna go to med school and be a doctor, you sure as hell better be passionate about the disease process.

My sister works within the VA system and she has told me many times that certain regional VA's are great at some things and terrible at others.
