Both doctors and patients have completely different perspectives as regards how much they should be paying for medical services.
The public, the press and the politicians feel that doctors have become greedy and mercenary, and are just out to make money.
A doctor has a completely different perspective ! After all, he is potentially saving a human life, and how can anyone put a value on human life. Isn't that irreplaceable ? Shouldn't that make his services priceless? He can't understand why a patient grudges paying the doctor his professional fees. Isn't he providing a service which goes far beyond delivering monetary value ?
