Dr. John E. Schindler is a surgeon and physician who earned a doctorate degree in medicine from the University of Michigan.
He also earned a master’s degree in surgery from Northwestern University and a doctor of medicine degree from the Cleveland Clinic.
He has been a member of the medical board at several hospitals and is the president of the American Medical Association’s board of surgeons.
Schindleler is also a founding member of Physicians for a National Health Program and has served as its president since the organization was founded in 1974.
In 2017, he was named the youngest recipient of the Dr. Elizabeth A. M. Baker Memorial Fellowship in Medicine.
According to the American Board of Internal Medicine, he earned a physicianate degree from Harvard Medical School in 2005 and a master of medicine in surgery in 2008.
The organization lists him as a professor of surgery.
Schinchler is married to the former Janet E. Gershman and has two children.
A video of the speech was posted to YouTube on July 1, 2017, and it has been viewed more than 12 million times.
A follow-up video on July 6, 2017 showed that Schindlers speech was more positive and less negative than his previous address.
In his speech, Schinders addressed the healthcare industry and how it has failed to address rising costs for patients.
“We’re losing patients because they can’t afford the costs of the care they need,” he said.
“The insurance industry has taken over the health care industry.”
The Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project has compiled data from government reports and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, which show that more than 80% of all Medicare spending comes from private insurance, not government spending.
For instance, according to a 2014 report from the Kaiser Family Foundation, the average annual cost of Medicare beneficiaries was $3,845.
Medicare spends more on outpatient services and services that doctors prescribe, which includes a wide range of procedures and treatments.
It also spends more per patient, including payments for medical tests, surgeries, and hospital stays, according the study.
Schinsler said he would like to see the Medicare program overhauled to allow providers to charge patients based on their needs.
“As physicians, we’re supposed to do a good job of managing the costs associated with our patients’ health care, but the government’s spending for it is skyrocketing,” he told The Washington Post.
“If the federal government would provide that, we could make a lot of money.”
Schindles address is also notable in part because it comes as he was facing a possible re-election challenge from a doctor who had previously called for Medicare reform.
The doctor, Dr. Robert C. Thompson, who is a professor at the University at Albany, has received support from several groups including Physicians for A National Health Initiative and the American College of Surgeons, which has endorsed him for president.
“I think the public will support that,” Schindels speechwriter, Laura D’Andrea, told The Post.
The president’s speech, however, has garnered criticism.
“Dr. Schinderl’s comments were offensive and have no place in an open forum like this,” Sarah Kochel, executive director of Physicians For a National Right to Health, said in a statement.
“His comments are a clear attack on the Medicare system, the American people, and all Americans.
As president, he should denounce them and not accept their endorsement.”
