A little boy with stomach pain so severe it made him turn pale and curl up in a ball was seen five times in a busy federally funded clinic. The child had endoscopies and scans for which he was anesthetized, but the diagnosis remained elusive until a semi-retired physician spent the time to get a complete history. This physician was subsequently sanctioned for not meeting the clinic quota of seeing a patient every 13.3 minutes.
