-- How Will You Use This Story? --


(OPEN):
DERMATOLOGISTS FROM ACROSS THE NATION ARE ON CAPITOL HILL THIS WEEK [THE WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 14TH]--PROVIDING INPUT TO LAWMAKERS ABOUT HOW HEALTH-SYSTEM REFORM-PROPOSALS WOULD AFFECT THEIR PATIENTS.  SKIN-CONDITIONS CAN BE LIFE-THREATENING, OR CAN IMPACT A PATIENT'S QUALITY-OF-LIFE--AND, IN SOME CASES, KEEP THEM FROM WORKING.  DERMATOLOGIST AND PRESIDENT OF THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OF DERMATOLOGY ASSOCIATION, DOCTOR DAVID PARISER ["PARIS-ER"], SAYS THAT DERMATOLOGISTS SUPPORT HEALTH-SYSTEM REFORM, AS LONG AS THE REFORMS CONTINUE TO PRESERVE AND PROTECT THE DOCTOR/PATIENT RELATIONSHIP...

(PARISER):
"THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OF DERMATOLOGY ASSOCIATION SUPPORTS REFORMING THE CURRENT HEALTH-CARE SYSTEM IN A WAY THAT INSURES MORE AMERICANS, REDUCES COSTS WITHOUT REDUCING THE QUALITY OF CARE, AND ALLOWS PATIENTS TO CHOOSE THEIR DOCTOR.  IN ADDITION, THESE REFORMS NEED TO ENSURE THAT PHYSICIANS ARE ABLE TO MAKE THE CARE- AND TREATMENT-DECISIONS NECESSARY TO APPROPRIATELY TREAT THEIR PATIENTS.
"

(CLOSE):
SKIN-CONDITIONS AFFECT NEARLY 80-MILLION AMERICANS--AND COST AN ESTIMATED 38.6-BILLION DOLLARS, IN MEDICAL SERVICES AND LOST PRODUCTIVITY IN THE U-S.
