I'd like to harness some of the minds out there to address something.

Health care providers can be categorized, or they can be arranged by specific type or service.

Specific services types, are, for instance: family practice doctor, radiology labs, emergency services, pharmacist, nursing, to name a few.

Categorized: acute care. specialized care, clinics, long term care...

Let's imagine for a minute that "insurance" wasn't in the picture, and you wanted to be a doctor.

How would you go about getting into business for yourself?

Would you open up a retail establishment ( doctor's office) as a stand alone enterprise, or would you attempt to build an professional alliance with the commonly needed services? Like, doctor, pharmacist, radiologist, lab all in one enterprise?

What would be the advantages of each type of approach, and what would be the disadvantages, both financially and practically?
