Older doctors can teach younger, less experienced physicians a lesson or two about cutting costs by using less costly procedures, a RAND study shows.

This article sets a new standard for stupidity. I am used to this site having no shame, but this one is a duzzy. I was a teacher in training programs for these new physicians. They have been trained to waste money. Older physicians are finding it more and more difficult to find work in part because they were not trained this way and threaten corporate plans and profits. The author really ought to consider a new line of work. Unless of course it is deliberately misleading to help distract people from the fact of corporate destruction of medicine in the US, in which case his employers are likely pleased.

Hilarious to hear the disgruntled physicians are ready to quit if Obama won. Quit and do what exactly? Sure they are unhappy about reimbursement, but current levels of payment are completely unsustainable no matter who was President. Did they notice that Romney himself didn't actually have a health plan to replace Obamacare with? Why? Even he knew there had to be giant cuts. The point of American healthcare is to get care to as many people as possible[INVALID]to be sustain physician salaries at all costs.
