Regulatory oversight of purchasing education is unneeded. Also, the education of where to buy products has never been a norm in any industry. This is akin to having hospitals educate patients that all products offered are available elsewhere, or auto dealerships making sure that people know there are options. On top of that, it is additional regulation and hardship to accomplish this goal. I believe that the public is already aware that there is competition and many places to purchase. It has always been this way. They choose to buy from us because of our level of service as well as our prices. We do not engage in deceptive practices to force purchases at our clinic. Therefore this is additional regulation that is unneeded. It is additional work for the government and for the doctor. The patient does not gain from this. The only party to gain would be companies that provide products without medical service.
