Patients think most doctors are out to make money

A video excerpt from The Vanishing Oath, a film directed by Ryan Flesher, MD.

That’s the sentiment from patients polled in Boston in this video clip.

I’ve often wondered if doctors were offered a reduced, fixed salary, but were given medical malpractice protection, more vacation time, and a weekly limit on the number of hours they worked, how many would take that deal?

If it’s less than, say, 50%, then maybe these patients have a point — most doctors are in medicine for the money.
