The good doctors. How do you find them?

Tuesday morning on AirTalk, we talked with a Rand researcher about his new study on physician ratings. The study’s release Monday was particularly timely, as the California Medical Association had just filed suit against Blue Shield for its online rankings of doctors.

CMA claimed that the rankings were very inaccurate and favored cheaper doctors over those who were more expensive. Blue Shield responded that it didn’t take costs into account, only results.
