The thing that impresses me the most about this hypothetical physical cliff is that medical doctors feel they are on a financial cliff as well.

Good, they should all go off it, they are thieves especially in South Florida. Diagnosis are strictly based on financial reward. There is little truth in diagnosis today. My false diagnosis was all about the money. I didn't need drugs which came mighty close in killing me to resolve a "sugar" problem. I brought dowm my blood sugar levels and miraculously have had no future problems or concerns. Why? The doctor just saw me as a means of pushing drugs.

Poor poor children on Adderall.Kids being exploited, what else is new?

I would cut medicare even more and eliminate Part D completely. Drug companies are not doing adequate testing today. There are simply one too many serious dangerous drug.

So they pay out billions in litigation, to them it is just the cost of doing business. Off labeled drugs are the worst.

Please all you unscrupulous unconscienable doctors like Daniel Chervony of the Pavilion, please jump off the cliff. You are rippping Medicare blind with all your fraudulent billing. Explain 5 minutes being billed medicare 2 hours, your a lying Mexican thief. Go back to Suarez, Mexico a deal with the drug lords.

I remind all of you good folks in Coral Springs and South Florida that the Sunshine Act goes into affect in Jan. 2013. Medical doctors have to inform or disclose if they are on any payroll of any drug company.

More then likely the drugs he/she has been prescribing you or giving you for nothing, he's on that company's payroll. Impartiality in diagnosis is uncommon in South Florida.

Please also report Medicare fraud when you witness it, if he/she lies or over bills Medicare he/she is more than able to easily lie to you.

Medicare is simply being rinsed, on my last invoice Medicare only paid 10% of the amount charged. The billing is not even close anymore.

A medical supply house actually admitted to me on the phone that as a walk in patient, the apparatus is $2.95 each or $90.00 for thirty.

Medicare was billed $400.00 and they had the "chutzpah" to bill me the amount Medicare did not pay which was greater then the $90.00. Simply amazing, they actually put it on my credit report also for none payment.

Sadly, This is the reason some in Congress want to eliminate Medicare altogether. Please report fraud.
