OR WAIT 15 SECS
As editor-in-chief of Dermatology Times and its sister publication, Cosmetic Surgery Times, I have had the opportunity to watch myriad types of surgeons perform dermatologic surgery and cosmetic-surgery settings. Idon't need to tell you about the turf battles -- who should perform what types of surgeries and in what settings. It's the stuff of not only competition, but of intense study and eventual government regulation. What I would like to comment on, from what may perceived as a humble viewpoint, is the American Academy of Dermatology's recent study calling for mandatory reporting of all adverse events happening in in-office settings.
