ATLANTA, GA – Kevin Pho, or better known as KevinMD, rescued another burned-out physician from a tree Saturday.  Here’s why.

“I was so burned out, I climbed a tree and then I just couldn’t get down,” Dr. Hampton told reporters.  “I mean 30 patients a day, and most of the time I spend documenting every second of the encounter.  I can only recognize my patients by their chart not their face, and that’s frustrating.  I don’t feel I’m making a difference.”

Dr. Hampton said he broke when a hospital administrator said he was getting low HCAP scores because he wasn’t prescribing enough opioids to his patients.  “I had it.  I left the office and climbed the nearest tallest tree I could find.”

Luckily KevinMD was around and read him some of his latest burnout posts from his blog.  “That really put his pain in perspective,” Kevin said.  “After that I was able to climb up there and help him down.”

Dr. Hampton is back at work practicing how the hospital administrators would like him to practice.  “He was just a wild horse that we had to break in,” said hospital administrator Cheryl Hynes.

“Wait!” KevinMD protested.  “This madness has to stop!  I can’t spend my whole career rescuing burned-out physicians from trees all over the country!!!”
