So true the facts make a world of difference. The Florida eye Doctor may have many other Doctors and others working for him. The details may or may not reveal his net 21 million.

Re: Figures lie, liars figure
Looks like i'm in the wrong business, I should have been a Doctor. My whole practice would be Medicare and Medicaid patients. I'd retire my first year out.

Big Data is badly needed, but the powers that be must change the system. When 100 doctors are getting $610 Million dollars in payments there is something wrong.

Figures lie, liars figure
Journalists, like politicians, don't let facts get in the way of a good story and know that the subtleties or footnotes aren't interesting to their respective audiences. The other problem I have with this is the assumption that the government isn't paying any attention to the small percentage of doctors pulling down 7- and 8-figure sums from Medicare. That may or may not be true.
