Nowadays doctors can become very rich. Maybe they should not focus on profitable activities such as plastic surgery or looking after rich patients and concentrate more on patients health, no matter how rich they are?
Money, money, money. It seems like every problem, every argument, every action boils down to money. Money somewhat blinds us, even blinds ones with one of the most prestige jobs such as doctors. Doctors, nowadays, incline to work in plastic surgery field or look after rich patients. This begs a question as whether they should concentrate more on patients’ health instead of money only.
To devise the best solutions for this problem, we might have to analyse the root of it. As far as I am concerned, the first and also mentioned one is money. There is no denying that plastic surgery and rich patients are good sources of income. That women were and still are quite obssessed with their physical appearances is a common understanding. Given that the beautiful people, in general, stand higher chance of being taken on, plastic surgery is becoming hotter than ever before. So it is intensely understandable that doctors tend to master this field. Secondly, the problem roots in the lack of passion. Our belief that all doctors devote themselves unconditionally to taking care of patients is no longer right. Most doctors are, but some others may not. Doctors are flesh and blood and they have to make a living for themselves and their families. They, therefore, find rich patients more “appealing”.
From these causes, I suggested some solutions. Firstly, we should emphasise that the prime priority in becoming a doctor is conscience, and then their ability. Because what kind of doctors is that that choose money over their conscience? They seems to forget about their oaths. So let us make them bear that in mind by adding “a test” on their conscience before deciding whether one is qualified for this prestige job. Also, only by securing doctors and their families’ lives, could they devotedly look after their patients regardless of their classes. However, we should make clear to them that privileges always go hand in hand with responsibilities. When they passionately concentrate on patients’ health only, money will automatically find its way to doctors.
How about already-rich doctors? It is arguable that doctors’ salary are proportional to their ability. And rich doctors who are highly-skilled only suitable for rich patients. Mindful that the rich are able to pay the fee for the treatment, this is like an uphill battle because of the gap between the poor and the rich. Nevertheless, I believe, doctors who are truly conscientious will do their utmost to care of their patients.
In conclusion, it is clear that doctors, nowadays, have an inclination to head for profitable activities like plastic surgery or looking after rich patients because doctors, after all, are just ordinary people. This is due to the inseparable gap between classes in each society. Nonetheless, we can only count on the conscience of the doctors to be strong enough to choose patients over money.
