Family Medicine: Solutionists or Inflictionists

Now you can add Solutionists to the list of novel ways to think of focused medical professional activities.  Direct Primary Care seems to be driving the invention of new terms.  Many see it as "THE Solution", so Solutionist isn't far behind.

Since we have so many pressing guidelines and protocols, I propose that we recognize the Inflictionists.  Those physicians who inflict so much on patients with inadequate regard for the patient's chief complaint or reason for the encounter should be called "Inflictionists".

I hope your doctor is a Solutionist.
