The military does NOT have a monopoly on "paperwork overload"; there are problems in civilian medicine as well. BUT, the military is exponentialy WORSE than anything I have ever seen compared to my civilian experience. Other docs please feel free to add to the below list that shows the military IS THE LARGEST HMO in todays health care market, and all the negatives that go with that. See the next thread for the start of the list. For docs still waiting to get to their military practice, have your pens and your patience primed.
