It’s the Behavior – Referral for Profit is Rampant Among Physicians. It’s an Avoidable Conflict of Interest

October 29, 2011

Here’s another example of referral for profit abuse.

In this NY Times story www.nytimes.com/2011/10/29/health/mris-often-overused-often-mislead-doctors-warn.html the author calls attention to the overuse of MRI.

He doesn’t draw any conclusions as to why there is overuse.

It’s for the money. Monetizing patients is what so many orthopaedists do best. It’s what they are taught to do.

We will continue to make light of the abuse.

Will anyone listen?

When will lawmakers say enough is enough?
