If you are young or still healthy maybee you don't realize how bad it is. You must agree that when you see a doctor he gets less then 8% of the money for your visit is totally insane

Whether it is as low as 8%, I donít know.
I don't think 8% is all that far off. I'll have to run the numbers for my wife's practice and see. People forget that the doctor is the only one in the office that actually brings in any money. Everything and everyone else is a parasite. For many years my wife's front desk girl took home more money at the end of the month than my wife did.
