Dr. Mills has been volunteering one day a week at a free neighborhood health clinic that serves those with state medical cards as well as homeless individuals who walk in for acute care. On other days, Dr. Mills is part of an internal medicine practice group with five other physicians. Even though Dr. Mills receives less compensation because he is only in the office four days a week, his partners recently have been increasingly critical of his volunteer work on "practice time." One of their arguments is that some portion of office and patients' fees covers office expenses, and since he is only there four days a week, he is not paying his share. In his own defense, Dr. Mills has been arguing that the profession requires volunteer work and that his partners should commit some time to the free clinic.
