Doctor, heal thy attitude

BusinessWeek, October 2, 2008

In this article, BusinessWeek asks whether or not doctors are hypocrites as part of a debate over whether doctors are "glorified merchants" or benevolent professionals deserving greater respect. One side argues that today's doctors put their pocketbooks first and patients second. The other points to the years of training and long hours doctors put in to make the case that medicine is still an art and doctors are underappreciated.
