I think it's sad that doctors in the US (I don't know how many) entered the profession to make big bucks ! There's one dentist in the US who used paper clip as post for root canal, yes PAPER CLIP instead of stainless steel post for root canal.
Paper clip is allowed for temporary measure, not permanent root canal. And he performed so many root canals using paper clips to save $ or make $.
What a shame !
Just my opinion but you're trashing your own credibility here. I am most interested in seeing US health care overhauled, but I'm confident that not all US doctors enter the profession "to make big bucks." Most medical professionals, not just doctors BTW, are probably good people who want to help people first and foremost, but they are trapped in a health care/insurance/political/legal maze that makes it almost impossible. I am sure they are frustrated too.
And while I'm the first to criticize the poor cost effectiveness of our US health care, the fact remains that at the leading edge our medical professionals are indeed the best in the world in many areas. Metaphorically, we can't block & tackle well at all (that's where the problems are), but we have more star quarterbacks than any other country.
It's nice to know Canadian doctors are entirely altruistic though...
