    I am a psychiatrist who had over 800 new patients and not even one physician.
    Physician health program of my provincial medical association (Ontario) offered me one hour of free counseling when I was incredibly stressed . One hour for a busy community psychiatrist. Time for change. Physician health matters. A loss of physician’life carries a large detrimental impact on family friends and patient. Physician health program must be changed
