Your points are valid as well. As you know, I was referring to the medical establishment requiring many tests where no evidence exists indicating a need for the tests. That is due to concern of malpractice litigation in the event a condition isn't diagnosed.
As you mention, the public shoud not be able to request side-walk medical exams, as they can now. Physician prescription should be required.
Physicians simply placing $$$ ahead of sound medical judgement.
