    As division chief of obstetrics for Calgary Health Region, I looked up the Rate your MD website.1 The results were exactly the opposite from those that my colleagues and I would have expected. Excellent, conscientious physicians rated as marginal, while some others—I won’t share my views—rated as 5/5.

    It seems that if you don’t order that unnecessary MRI scan, you don’t score well.
