TROT Line: Live and Direct From the Republic of Texas

Holt, Mark W. MD

Live From the Real World of Managed Care

Dr Holt is in private practice at MD Pediatric Associates, Lewisville, Tex.

Note from editor: As usual, TROT Line exaggerates, embellishes, and goes way over the edge shamelessly and without the slightest drop of remorse. Any resemblance to a real person—living, dead, or on CPAP—is strictly semicoincidental and not (intentionally) on purpose. Humor represents the only mechanism that a journal editor has left to confront the absolute craziness that is occurring in today's medical marketplace. I would encourage readers to submit humor op-ed pieces on today's health care system.
