Physicians’ Experiences With Impaired Colleagues

JAMA. 2010;304(17):1895-1897. doi:10.1001/jama.2010.1557

To the Editor: The survey study by Dr DesRoches and colleagues1 reported data regarding physicians' experiences with impaired colleagues. Although the authors concluded that a large number of practicing physicians do not support the current process of self-regulation, we believe that the discussion lacked consideration of relevant issues that would put these results into more meaningful context.
