Health Care Reform Passes: But What Do Doctors Think?

It was a historic night in Washington as the House of Representatives passed the health care bill, securing Democrats and President Obama a hard-fought victory in the battle for health care reform.

"This is what change looks like," the president said in a brief speech after the House vote. But Sunday's late-night vote did not bring an end to the passionate debate going on across the country over what is best for the U.S. health care system.

So in today's Conversation, ABC's Dan Harris reaches out to two practicing physicians to get their thoughts on health care reform.

Harris spoke to Dr. David Katz, who practices internal medicine, and Dr. Eric Novack, an orthopedic surgeon. He found that while both doctors want the best for their patients, the definition of "best" differs. While Katz sees the bill as a needed step in helping both insured and uninsured Americans, Novack says the bill unwisely takes health care out of the hands of families and people and puts it into the hands of the government.
