BEWARE spinal laser surgery and Outpatient Surgery Centers
#1
University of Michigan studies show that many of these two types of medical practices are primarily owned by physician investors.

"Looking at five common procedures at Florida surgery centers, they found that once doctors became investors, the number of surgeries they performed increased by 87 percent."

just re-emphasizing that medicine is a business and many medical procedures are more about the doctor then the patient.
those who are in pain and desperate for relief are the easiest to con.
quakery is one of the oldest frauds on earth--just newer technology these days.
