#538 Show Summary (How Much Is That Doc in the Window? Show):

Medicare has released physician payment data, showing how much they paid US physicians in the past year. Some of the data is misleading – groups of doctors bill under one name, doctors bill for expensive drugs, which they must then purchase, payment for procedures go to a team of healthcare providers. Some of the doctors make an enormous amount of money, which is not misleading. Join us for a discussion of this, Cap’n Crunch, and how Viagra might raise your risk of melanoma.

Tip: Remember the Tdap vaccine. While adults need tetanus vaccine every 10 years, this tetanus vaccine includes acellular pertussis, which vaccinates against whooping cough. Make sure your vaccinated before taking care of an infant.
