You cut, we’re out …

Iam prac­tic­ing in Palatka, Fla., where we three car­di­ol­o­gists pro­vide all car­diac ser­vices, in­clud­ing echocar­dio­grams, thal­lium and out­pa­tient catheter lab­o­ra­tory ser­vices (“Se­nate bill could drive some providers out of Medi­care: CMS,” Mod­ern­Health­care.com, Jan. 9). If th­ese cuts go through, we have a plan to close our prac­tice and then work for the hospi­tal. We have no choice but to do it. I have been prac­tic­ing here for more than 11 years. The cuts are too dras­tic. Mukesh Goel
