Most patients I know are not surprised. The surprise is that it wasn't 
more. I know there has been a lot of talk lately about releasing of 
doctors' Medicare pay, but in 10 min. I looked at a slew of docs' 
payments and said who cares ... next ...

because people I know are more interested in getting docs working on 
errors (the biggest malpractice area) than really caring about the 
Medicare data.
