    Nope, just a Pediatron in over his head.

    I think there is a guy like that in Marietta Georgia.

    Just too scary.

    "...writing huge volumes of prescriptions so he can attract even more patients and rake in Medicaid reimbursements."

    Because we all know how well Medicaid pays...

    I had my rake out last week so I could handle the $34 Medicaid sent me to cover April's billings.

    If you see patients every 2 minutes you can make a lot doing Medicaid.

    I doubt he only sees Medicaid. There is a cash-pay element that goes along with this type of practice that is extremely profitable. Also, there can be kickbacks - either in cash or drugs - that can make the doctor very happy.

    Throw in some TPIs at each visit and bill them as paravertebral nerve or joint injections and it gets very profitable indeed - even at Medicaid rates.
