Great article! I just finished reading your recently published ABA Health Lawyer article (Hospital Employing Physicians: A Practical Guide to Buying Physician Practices and Compensating Employed Doctors) and wanted to drop you guys a quick note. This truly was a fantastic article and I know it must have been a tremendous amount of work. Well done.

Excellent article. Timely and well written. I've been dealing with all of those issues, and you were right on target. Hell, it was really long - it must have taken a long time. Congrats to you on your great work.

I just had the opportunity to review the December, 2009 issue of the ABA Health Law Section Newsletter. My complements on an extraordinarily comprehensive and well written article. It must have involved a great deal of work to cover the hospital-employed physician agreement in such detail. It's great to have all these issues updated and collected in one place. Thank you.
