  1. Thank you for your detailed response -JAG- There would be no problem if these specialists would be making this much money in private practice However, as all of this money comes from the common pot, billing disproportionately larger amounts than other specialists/generalists is essentially taking a big fat dump on them "We are better than every other specialty" mentality... --- In the US, specialists don't have such an insane spread in compensation.
