In particular, said Mary P. Lupo, M.D., appropriately used procedures for these chronic skin conditions can be "a great way to increase your practice's cash-payment business. I'm all about physicians having more control over their lives and practices and being less dependent on government and insurance companies. Instead of being worried about the future, figure out how you can make your practice more profitable." She is a New Orleans-based dermatologist in private practice.
