Many physicians have concerns about the national surge in sham peer reviews and referrals to Physicians Health Programs.  Current investigations show that those concerns may be well founded.

Improper Referrals

Patient safety advocates, whistleblowers and those with chronic health conditions have become the targets of overreaching PHPs

Length of Stay

Many physicians go for evaluation but find themselves spending 60-90 days away from their families for mandatory and improper inpatient stays

Over Charging

Physicians may be drastically overcharged for unnecessary treatments

Loss of Earnings and Practice

Many physicians are forced into extended PHP stays losing months of earnings, some their practices 

Medical License and Hospital Privileges

Many physicians comply with the PHP and still lose their hospital privileges and medical license
