Reasonable Health Care in the United States?

September 20th, 2007

Dr. Jay Parkinson in New York City has taken an amazing approach to medicine. He offers personalized, very responsive basic health care for $500 per year. Have a health concern? IM him, e-mail him, or send him photos or video and he’ll quickly advise, treat or refer you to a reasonably-priced specialist.

His Web site almost makes me want to move to New York just to escape the typical American health care hellhole I’m trapped in. But I wonder whether this approach can scale.
