In Reply:-The concerns raised by Dr. Davila are important and thought-provoking. He challenges us to contemplate the balance of economic issues with ethical and patient care concerns. Only knowledgeable and honest debate will allow us to evolve a strategy that can best advocate our profession while protecting our patients. May the debate continue!
