You have got to be kidding me. Why don't you look up the minutes of just about any state medical board. They are online, as well as the disciplinary actions taken. They don't mess around. How this guy managed to practice, I won't pretend to understand. But saying that there is no internal policing amongst physicians is just flat out incorrect.
