There is no question that practising medicine can be very fulfilling for the doctor. However, many patients mistrust their doctors , because they are worried that the doctor's advise is tainted by the fact that he needs to earn money based on what he tells them to do. Sadly , it is often true that patients are subjected to unnecessary surgery - and a prime example of this would be the epidemic of bypass surgery we are seeing. Unforunately, healthcare has become a huge industry, and many doctors are unwitting pawns in the hands of pharmaceutical companies and corporate hospitals, whose bottom line is their bottom line !
It would be perfect if you could find a doctor who was independently wealthy - one who practised medicine for the fun of it - not as a source of income !
