To the Editor Drs Kahn and Gardin “investigated which states and hospitals or physician groups employ large numbers of physician visa holders”1 but unfortunately used data on labor condition applications in determining the top employers sponsoring physician H-1B visa applications. The authors failed to take into account the process for labor condition applications.
