Wondering if it's the same on this side of the border.
I've had my doctor since shortly moving here he has never pushed meds onto me.
When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

Doctors in Canada are paid by the taxpayers, hospitals in the US are private businesses.

Do you have link that would provide proof, if so my doctor is not making any on me. Just another reason I'm not about to drop him.

My docs have never pushed any medication or surgery on me, quite the opposite.

My most recent doctor doesn’t push any of that on me, either. He says that medication should be a very last resort for most people.

I can’t say the same for most of the ones I’ve met, though.

Since my doctor does not push drugs on me, I could care less about other doctors.

I have a friend who is a physician and he tells me that doctors regularly go on all expenses paid trips which are supposedly to attend educational conferences, but are really an opportunity for big pharma to convince doctors to prescribe the products manufactured by whichever company happens to be paying for the conference.

My friend refused to go on such junkets for many years, but finally, during the last 5 years before he retired, he decided if "he couldn't beat 'em, he may as well join 'em". So he and his wife had a wonderful time being wined and dined at places like the Banff Springs Hotel, and many other such luxury resorts during the final few years of his working life.

He still thinks such all expenses paid junkets shouldn't be allowed, but figured he may as well reap some of the benefits while he had the opportunity. After all, all of his friends were doing it.

If even some of the physicians who go on such trips think they shouldn't be allowed, why on earth doesn't our Government ban them?
