Tall Claims..False Propaganda

Many of us are fooled by those medical practitioners who act as qualified professionals. They organize their own fanciful treatment schedules. They prompt the patients to perform medical tests which are mostly unnecessary in treating a health condition. With little knowledge in the disease conditions they prescribe various medicines for a simple ailment. Nowadays the practice is quite in vogue.Has medical management of diseases turned out to be a profitable business? Where has all the medical ethics gone?

Thanks a ton for sharing this discussion. Well yes u are absolutely right, medical management has become more or less like a business and even doctors these days wants to make quick money at the cost of their patient's health. I have heard about how people are being prescribed so many expensive medicines which are quite dangerous if they are not taken for the right kind of diseases. I think there needs to be a strict law that would appraise the activities of the doctors every month. What say?

it has always been like this with the medical association in this country. any country where you have to pay for health care will result in it being all about money. doctors need you to be sick. this is why they don't go to school to learn how to cure disease, but manage it.

Well said.Absolutely right.Personal experiences have provided solid proof for this lack of concern shown by medical professionals in the private sector hospitals and treatment centers.

I think the medical profession is like all other groups and professions, some are 'good' and some are not so good.. some are motivated to do good and others to become wealthy or be some sort of big whig. Human nature! You can count on it to be questionable. I also think, well, here in the usa where I live, we are badly in need of tort reform, as lawyers make tons of money from people suing doctors, sometimes for frivolous reasons. Of course people harmed by the medical profession should be able to sue at court, but for millions of dollars, and a large chunk of that going to the lawyer(s)? This causes all doctors, etc, to have very expensive insurance packages against all this which is one of the factors which makes our medical care here in the usa so very expensive. Why one aspirin is likely to cost $70 or something! I don't think most of it is greed. I actually think most of it is the high cost of supplies and hospitals, medicines and research for the best new meds. Like everything human, I'm afraid it falls way below par.

I am happy I am quite healthy and do not need to take medical checkups often. But some days back I heard from a friend of mine how he was treated at two of the most renowned medical institutes in India. He was having a severe pain in his scrotum and consequently his right leg was feeling numb. He was under treatment there for two months and numerous tests followed. But still, after four months, he does not know what exactly is his problem whatsoever. His only question was this: If doctors at such acclaimed institutes cannot diagnose properly, what are the states at other small medical facilities throughout the country? It is no wonder that the medical business is the most profitable business of our times. Still, there are doctors who follow the medical ethics as their only guidelines but they are getting increasingly harder to meet with.

Yes, there is much iatrogenic illness, that is, illness caused by the physician. In fact some studies indicate that people are suffering more from that than from all the other kinds of illnesses put together.
