Docs4PatientCare

I'm not familiar with this group, but the letter they're circulating, and the coverage they've received in the WSJ are positive. Here's an excerpt from a letter participating doctors are posting in their waiting rooms:
Dear Patient: Section 1311 of the new health care legislation gives the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services and her appointees the power to establish care guidelines that your doctor must abide by or face penalties and fines. In making doctors answerable in the federal bureaucracy this bill effectively makes them government employees and means that you and your doctor are no longer in charge of your health care decisions. This new law politicizes medicine and in my opinion destroys the sanctity of the doctor-patient relationship that makes the American health care system the best in the world.
