Does merely adhering an MD- or a DO-degreed individual to your business or venture these days constitute a physician-run entity?
I’m asking because I’m a doctor, and I’m seeing these things play out all around me.
A business owner, in fact, reached out to me, and asked if his company could merely use my name (and, of course, the degree attached) where it came to the creation of his business in various states.
This seems fraudulent on some level, but I can’t really find a reason why.
On the other hand, are we fooling the public sector by repeatedly doing this?

Because you know what happens next? The company makes claims that are then trusted by laypeople. Merely because of that attached name.
So I’m asking you all to please consider this as an issue that needs to be addressed.
Thank you for providing me with an anonymous place to ask this.
