Re: Forum letter by doc abt rising medical costs

After his letter was published, many doctors were furious with him and at least one wrote him an email. But I heard he was very gracious and offered to explain his encounters with unethical doctors.

If you learn to speak well, more doors will open when you look for a job. Interviewers are often impressed with a job candidate who speaks well. To improve does no...
