Editor: As an established patient of a neurologist practicing in our immediate area, I responded for my scheduled appointment for a diagnostic test. Routinely, upon entering the physician's office, I displayed my drivers license and health insurance card to the receptionist, but on this visit I detected that something was wrong.
