Just what do you think the price should be to have someone operate a decent-looking, clean office, obtain a history in short order, prescribe dangerous chemicals and procedures, document all this, pay a staff, interpret labs, communicate the results to patients and specialists, all about 100 common ailments and 1000 rare ones, in their myriad forms?
Oh, and to be punished by the courts, the press, and multiple regulatory agencies for making even a small error, or sometimes making no error at all?
To be punished because of the progressive, inevitable deterioration of an old mortal who has not taken care of himself, ever, in any way?
To be knowledgeable about hundreds of advances in real time?
And to take ultimate responsibility for the well-being or bad outcome, for hundreds or thousands of patients?
Do you not shell out $1800 for maintenance, insurance, and repair of your car annually?

You’re nuts if you want to compare humans to machines. That’s how liberals think. Congratulations.
