It is sad that the era of private practice medicine may be ending. Many practices, even the largest ones, have seen income plummet during the pandemic. Some may not reopen, and others will struggle. Hospitals will absorb their practices and life will go on. In the scheme of loss and tragedy from COVID-19, this is a blip. Medical care that monitors and prevents illness will move forward in a post-pandemic world. Physicians and other providers will be compensated. As these changes occur let’s hope that there is a continued emphasis on maintaining an individualistic streak, personal bond to patients, attention to detail, and that attentive and caring communication to patients endures.
