  • I believe that's the governing body) can take away their license to practice if they are proven to be incompetent.

    That's why when patients ask question doctors usually don't answer because of liability.

  • In what regard? They pay a lot of money to carry malpractice insurance, and the AMA (I believe that's the governing body) can take away their license to practice if they are proven to be incompetent.
