This is partly true, then the large corp/hospital system can tell the Doc's how to practice, what tests to do, what procedures to do etc. If the Doc doesn't like it, hit the bricks. Suits running the show on the corporate side with the help from the Feds who want to run it on their side. Is it a scene from a movie with a smoke filled backroom? I don't know if its that coordinated, but it's not good for patients or Doctors. I've set a 15 year time clock for myself, with any luck I can get out by then.
