Why is congress attempting to prevent our physicians from owning, imaging, physical therapy services and pathology services in-house?
Any decision to change this would harm the patient by being possibly life threatening, more costly and time consuming for them as well. Services that can presently be done at the time of an appointment at their doctor's office would lose precious scheduling days if after their doctor appointment they then had to schedule an appointment to go to another location to complete tests and then schedule another appointment to return again to the doctor to get results on another day causing health threatening delays and costs as well. This should not be changed. If more services could be done in-house it would be better for addressing things that need immediate attention, that don’t have the luxury of waiting for another appointment just to take the tests to confirm the problems and begin the treatment as soon as and possible.
I truly hope you will take this into consideration and do no harm to this area for the sake and well-being of your constitutes.
