In brief: Neither!

Most doctors' pay is based on many components, such as the way the procedure is ‘coded’, the area of the country they practice in, the type of medical insurance, their employment contract, contractual discounts, etc.
Some doctors e.g. Plastic surgeons, bill the patient directly and their fees have to be paid in full.
