Washington - Brett Coldiron, M.D., a dermatologist and clinical assistant professor of dermatology at the University of Cincinnati,, gets audited every year by Medicare. He was so frustrated by the system and what it does to well-meaning dermatologists that he became a master "medical chartsman" and an expert on the topic. Dr. Coldiron frequently lectures on the topic to enlighten his peers about the inevitable audit.
