Ever wonder why it seems that all of the big hospitals in town are suddenly so interested in adding (ie buying) doctors to their staff instead of just working with the doctors already here in town? It shouldn’t surprise you that it’s all about money.

Please join me in supporting changes to the law that will level the playing field between big corporate hospitals and local physicians like me.
