November 3, 2014.   On the eve of the election, Speaker of the House Joe Strauss met with Dr. Khorsandi, and other physicians in San Antonio, Texas.  The speaker of the house has been very concerned with the changes in  health care over the last year, and how patients, physicians, and hospitals are affected by all the rules and regulations imposed by Obama care and the Affordable care act.  Dr. Khorsandi was amongst honored guests that attended the event.  There was good discussions on how to deliver the highest quality health care to patients, while continuing to practice as independent physicians  & hospitals.  Today almost 50% of physicians are employed physicians in one of the several large hospital systems that exist throughout the State of Texas.  If that trend continues, in about 5 years, the number will be closer to 70%.  That would mean, patients will have less choice of whom they see as physicians, and where they receive their care.
