Is it legal for a physician to prescribe a service for a patient (e.g., MRI) and pretty much tell the patient to use a provider in which the physician has a financial interest?
It depends on which country you live in, and what their law has to say about the matter.
Ethically it sounds dubious.
I am in the United States and in New York State.
