Hi all! (I am new to this, this is my 2nd thread in this forum) In my experience with private specialists in NJ(specifically with my sister who has various developmental disabilities, I have found that 2 of her docs(Pediatric Neurologist and DB Pediatrician) both have fee-for-service practices and do not participate in any insurance plans. I was wondering if this was a commonality/new trend in private practice in terms of these 2 specialties(in which appointments can take over an hour), and how this model is viewed (positively/negatively) in the medical community? Thanks!
