William M. Gilkison, M.D., explains  here in detail why he thinks that physicians are lazy.

He concludes:

“So, come on docs. Let’s see, examine, and take responsibility for our patients and work hard on their behalf. The more we dilute our influence or shirk our responsibilities, the less relevant we become. We owe it to our patients, to whom we are ultimately responsible, to stay out in front, be their advocates, and stand up for what is important to them. The practice of medicine and the physician-patient relationship have changed drastically in the last ten years. We cannot be so lazy as to let it get further away from us.”
