The Medicus Firm Medicus Firm recently did a survey that indicates that the passage of HCR would do dramatic damage to the healthcare system and many doctors would stop practicing medicine altogether. After some digging, I found out that this same survey was being accredited to the New England Journal of Medicine. But they say they didn't do the research, the survey was distributed by the same publisher for the NEJM. There was an email circulated that put NEJM as the conductor and publisher of the survey. That is not true. However, the numbers are real... real disturbing.
