Dr. Richard Amerling’s position on Obama’s healthcare reform:

ObamaCare, beyond the enormous costs and dislocations, directly inserts itself into the doctor-patient relationship.  It will make the practice of Hippocratic Medicine— “I will prescribe regimen for the good of my patients according to my ability and my judgment. I will keep them from harm and injustice.”—all but impossible.
