Doctor Panels Recommend Fewer Tests for Patients


News Flash:

A group of nine medical specialty boards plans to recommend that doctors perform 45 common tests and procedures less often, and to urge patients to question these services if they are offered.  The recommendations represent an unusually frank acknowledgment by physicians that many profitable tests and procedures are performed unnecessarily and may harm patients.  So, for all these years, doctors did not have the patients best interest in mind, but to make a fast buck?  Gee, who could have seen that coming?

Another so-called benefit from rising medical costs.
