For those who promote “Let’s forget organized medicine and just do our own thing,” what will you do about those who espouse the following policies?

Comment:  Organized medicine overtly states that non-physicians should not evaluate the professional practices of fully licensed physicians.

Monopoly:  the exclusive possession or control of the supply or trade in a commodity or service.

Excerpt:  AMA encourages medical staff peer review committees to consider excluding non-physicians when evaluating the professional practices of fully licensed physicians.
