The Physician’s Weekly #PWChat series continued last night with an energetic discussion focusing on defensive medicine and related costs. It was co-hosted by Jeff Segal, MD, JD, founder and CEO of Medical Justice, an organization that focuses on medical malpractice issues.

The conversation was sparked by one of Segal’s recent articles, Traditional Tort Reform Won’t Reduce Healthcare Costs.
