  1. Mr. Elliot, I am a physician recruiter. My wife, a subscriber, forwarded me your blog above. I do not dispute your statement and am contemplating reprinting it on my website with your permission. However, I would like to know your source in the event I were asked to verify your statement. I look forward to hearing from you.
