Yes, the customer is almost always right — except if they’re paying cash for healthcare. In this case, yes, the “customer” has the right to take their business elsewhere. But do they have the right to complain when I won’t prescribe a drug I know they don’t need?
No way. And just like I don’t WANT to pay taxes, my accountant provides me with options to address what I need to do and what I should not do.
Of course, I don’t have to listen to my accountant. I can forego paying my taxes.
However, I shouldn’t be surprised when the IRS calls me to demand payment, garnishes my wages, and ultimately closes my practice.
