All the "good stuff" is there. PM me and I'll give you the URL
And just 'cause someone got sued is NOT proof they are questionable.

Unless, of course, we fork over our credit card numbers.
Jan 7, '03Occupation: Nursing student Joined: Nov '02; Posts: 389; Likes: 10I visited the site after reading some article or other on it. I didn't subscribe b/c WA isn't included in the database--but I would subscribe in a heartbeat if that changes. I don't have a problem with the site charging for what is otherwise "public information". The "public information" is out there, but it's awfully difficult to locate, which is why the site is so helpful, since it puts all the info in one place.
I have to agree with the MCA 'fraud' thing...a really terrific neurosurgeon, the guy who treated my brain tumour, was busted on fraud charges. I don't know if he did it or not, but I don't believe he did anything different from any other physician at any other teaching hospital out there. I think he was the unfortunate guy chosen to be an 'example', so that the public would think something was actually being done about Medicare/Medicaid waste and failures.
Meanwhile, I can think of a half-dozen docs offhand who make a living by providing quasi-bogus diagnoses of back problems for patients involved in worker's comp and auto claims. Are these guys likely to be disciplined, ever? Nope, but I still wouldn't come near them with a ten-foot stick.
