Extract

One duck bite will not hurt you, but a thousand just might kill you. The medical profession is getting bitten, and the ducks are winning. Over the past decade, a remarkable number of laws, rules, regulations, and new ways of doing business have hit physicians. Each, when viewed alone, looks very reasonable, but, taken in aggregate, they are ruining the profession. The public, with the help of the media and our elected officials, is to blame and will, ultimately, reap the consequences.
