Yeah exactly! They got lawyers and regulations ... so why is it so wrong if we have sites that rate doctors so that we can protect ourselves?
 
"Like me, you could.....be unfortunate enough to stumble upon a silent war. The trouble is that once you see it, you can't unsee it. And once you've seen it, keeping quiet, saying nothing,becomes as political an act as speaking out. Either way, you're accountable."

I talked to Abby yesterday. She loves her clinic and her life. She still has a bit of trama over the incident of the dismissal.
She is such a trooper.
