You're disrespectful: Physicians are no more "money insatiable" than anybody else. Like everybody, we expect to be compensated for the professional services that we provide. We strive not to harm any patient. If there has been a wrongdoing, the doctor should share that information with his/ her patient. Please note however that many procedures come with inherent risks, and unfortunately outcomes can't be guaranteed.

Greed: Doctors , unfortunately , are no different than anyone else. But not all doctors and probably not the majority of doctors are greedy . There is a general problem in society about greed. I believe a one payer insurance program for everyone would help this a great deal.
