What was the most interesting question?

"What are you going to do when you are a physician and people are unable to pay for your services, or when insurance companies try to pay you less than you ask for your services? They wanted a solution out of me, and all I could say was I would not refuse a patient due to their insurance, its just not who I am. I also said that I know that will happen going into this profession, and it doesnt bother me because it comes with the territory." Report Response
