HYPOCRITICAL HIPPOCRATES

To the Editors of The Crimson:

I am tired of physicians who clothe their selfish interests in the language of freedom of choice and concern for their patients. It is glaringly obvious that the Cambridge Community Physicians don't want Harvard dependents in Cambridge to have a choice between their private services and a less expensive, more comprehensive, prepaid plan. These are the some kind of doctors who have opposed. Blue Cross-Blue Shield, Medicare, Medicaid, the building of more medical schools to produce more doctors, and every other attempt to improve health care and lower consumer costs. One hopes that all readers of the Crimson recognized the physicians' criticism of the new UHS plan for what it is--hypocritical poppycock. Phyllis Teitelbaum
