Every person practicing medicine knows about the business side of medicine. There is an eternal conflict in the mind of a medical practitioner: Costs, overhead, livelihood versus helping, giving and healing. A successful doctor does both: business and medicine. But what if one side starts to influence the other or worse alter the other?
When medicine and heart take over then the doctor becomes poor and when business takes over, well…..superfluous procedures, excessive drugs, over treatment! (as long as it is legal off course)
What if every patient had a medical professional counsel by their side when they go to see the doctor? Just to make sure that they don’t get too much of something they don’t really need.
I think that there is an extraordinary reward on the side of medicine, which is heart related and should be emphasized over and over. The following non-fiction story from today explains: A patient told her OB/GYN doctor, in a nearby town, that she is going for acupuncture for fertility. The doctor said “are you going to the guy in Weston that everyone loves.” How could this compare to financial success of an extra procedure?
Let’s put heart back in medicine! It is the real winner.
