Florida docs slam American Medical Association in letter

The Hill, September 9, 2010

A Florida physicians group sent a blistering letter to the American Medical Association on Tuesday to share its "strong message of dissatisfaction with the AMA leadership" for supporting healthcare reform and its "serious reservations about the AMA's effectiveness and its ability to represent the physicians' interests."

The letter from Florida Medical Association President Madelyn Butler was called for during the group's annual House of Delegates meeting last month. Members debated pulling out of the AMA but instead opted to send a message of "no confidence" after the national group endorsed healthcare reform but failed to get action on top priorities such as the Medicare physician payment formula and medical malpractice reform.
