Some of what I say may be considered to be politically incorrect by a lot of doctors . I've found that calling a spade a spade makes you unpopular, because even while people may agree with you in their heart of hearts, they're not sure they want some of these dirty secrets being laundered in public. That's why doctors are uncomfortable when I'm willing to talk openly about some of the unethical practices which have tarred the reputation of our profession, such as kickbacks and commissions. They feel I shouldn't ruffle the feathers of the powers-that-be.
And, yes, I have paid the price for this. You do get hurt when you stick your neck out, but I have accepted this reality.
