I have nothing against doctors but I do pay attention when I see a news story from a legitimate source that discloses some information about doctors who have been misbehaving. We patients tend to put so much trust in our doctors that we're sometimes unaware of just how their power can be abused.


Doctors who've lost their license in one state can move to another state and open up a practice without any problem, as this article points out--from MedPage Today (November 30, 2018)--"Bad Docs Give Up Licenses, But Not Medical Practice":
