The Rochester area is blessed with some of the finest medical professionals in the country, but some have gone to different states because of the many challenges in running a medical practice in New York.
There are now thousands of people in our area looking for a doctor, because for the first time, they have health insurance through the Affordable Care Act. While the health care system in Rochester started preparing for the influx of new patients even before Congress passed the Affordable Care Act, there are problems in New York State that sets New York aside from all other states in the country. And it is causing lots of frustration.
Diane Eccleston is so happy to finally be able to sit down with a cup of coffee and fill out the paperwork to get her husband and son a new doctor.
