Dr. Michael Newman has been a doctor in Washington D.C. for decades and has seen a lot of changes in medical care. Living in the nation's capitol he has participated in many discussions on healthcare reform. He brought his knowledge to Central Oregon this week. Dr. Newman spoke to the Central Oregon Medical Society Monday night about what the upcoming changes in healthcare may mean for them: “It's a step in the right direction. It's an evolution like social security and Medicare and expanded benefits. This is just the beginning and it's going to result in better care of our country and it’s going to help out with the economy challenges we're facing.” Dr. Newman says one of the challenges facing doctors is educating patients about procedures that are necessary and effective and have the best outcomes. He says 20% of our current healthcare is unnecessary, ineffective or unsafe.
