  1. Greg Funk, DO

    The Bigest problem is Too much oversite, control, and punitive damages from Ins Cos and Gov’t. They are in bed w one another, but for us it is called Antitrust. We need the same rights as farm workers as well as gov’t workers… The right to collectively bargain… Then we the Doctors can control medicine rather then bean counters and gov’t beaurocrats.

  2. Michael E. Fitzgerald, executive director of the American Academy of Osteopathy
