Defending Direct Pay Practitioners

I enjoyed this "doctors' Galt speech", though the ending paragraph is a bit weak.  I also think that the whole idea of a two-tiered system criticism should be challenged, it exists in every market, i.e. Ferrari drivers have objectively better cars than do most of us, so what?  (The rest of his analysis is true, regarding disruptive processes and first adopters paving the way for mass marketing of most goods.)

' to abandon our sacred obligation to our patients.'

I don't think my doctor has a sacred obligation to me. We all owe it to ourselves to do the best job we can.

I took that to mean the obligation the doctor has once he's accepted a patient, i.e. entered into a contract. But Obamacare or any form of socialized medicine creates a conflict between satisfying the customer and satisfying the government regulators / overseers.
