Doc Walks in Uninsured Patients' Shoes

Yeah, it won't cure the system's ills. But a young doctor's insurance experiment might make some folks feel better anyway. Dr. Will Nicholson joined Kyra live, in the Newsroom.

    Good interview - good questions and well-thought-out responses from the doctor.

    I,m very curious why the news casters don,t ask republican critics of the obama administration for healthcare this: If its true that all republicans want healthcare for all american citizens...why wasn;t it a priority when they had the whitehouse for 8 years?

    They seem soooo hypocritcal to me..and why want you guys ask that question?

    There is good and bad within medicine. The young doctor is what is considered good. If he continues to stay in tune with his patients needs.. each one of them will continue to benefit from his services. Pharma likes to begin their work on young doctors while in residency. He would do wise to look at longterm data while avoiding gifts and lunches from sales reps. All the best to you doctor!

    I think what this doctor wants is some sort of pubic option. There is a larger support for public option but health care bill has issues. Hard core liberals jam through social concept like living will in the health care bill which has nothing to do with health care. I think that's hurting the bigger cause.

    this is not the first time because that happens to me in nashville tn. the police arrest me for know reasons. i think they had to have a class for the police officer to teach them how to do something right.

    Thank you for the sensible critique. Me and my neighbor were just preparing to do some research about this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned more clear from this post. I am very glad to see such magnificent information being shared freely out there.
