To start, I would like to mention that this document is my opinion based on my personal experience from the previous years. It is not meant to accuse or denigrate anyone in anyway. It is meant to be a reflective document from a patient and business professional perspective. In the recent years, we have witnessed a boom of private medical practices. Do not get me wrong, this is a good thing from economic perspective; it is good from competition point of view as well. However, the question remains: what about us, the patients? Fortunately, or unfortunately, in the last few years, I had to deal with doctors and hospitals much more than I was wishing or expecting. I have seen doctors who are just interested in money and they would ready to operate on “patient own reconnaissance” and full payment upfront until really professionals who had time to discuss with me the options, recommend the best minimum invasive method for me, explain the risks and provide guarantee for their work. In simple words, I have met doctors, not so much famous, who are consistent with their call and for them the priority is still the well-being of the patient, as well as famous doctors, and “well recommended” for whom the priority was only money and no responsibility for their actions. So, what is the solution? Where do we, the patients, stand?
