In response to the Jan. 19 New York Times article, “Patients’ Costs Skyrocket; Specialists’ Incomes Soar,” the New York Times has published a letter written by ASDS expressing our dissapointment with their portral of dermatology. It is available for online viewing. Another letter, written by four organizations that represent dermatology physicians - including ASDS - is being sent to all media outlets that posted the article. The letter addresses the article’s inaccurate portrayal of the specialty and calls on journalists to portray “balanced stories and solutions as we work to build a better healthcare system.”
