The Difference Between Doctors and Lawyers | Brain Blogger’s Insight

A revived one man prospective article and almost inappropriate doctor and lawyer argument of a subject needing revision:  My personal insights at the end…..

I’ve always felt that doctors worked harder than lawyers. That medicine is a profession with no restrictions to work hours and that law is a corporate type of job with restrictions. I understand that in every profession there are difficult and less difficult specialties. Radiologists, physiatrists, and dermatologists are all doctors but they definitely don’t work as hard or as long of hours as surgeons, traumatologists, or intensivists. Similarly, litigators are under a lot of stress and must work after hours to prepare for cases. If clients get in trouble after hours, they must attend to them. On the other hand, there are contract lawyers that review contracts and don’t spend time in front of judges or juries. So in both professions there are those that work hard and long hours.

One key difference for me is that doctors are responsible for care at all hours of the day and night. If your doctor doesn’t see you when you need him/her you can die and bad things can happen. If your lawyer doesn’t see you, perhaps something bad can/will happen, but you can always get another attorney or if you get in trouble one will be assigned to you.
I guess both doctors and lawyers must take their work home at night. But when you are a doctor and someone is in the hospital, you must field calls from nurses all night. Lawyers don’t really have the same sort of torture and can sleep.
I definitely feel that doctors have more important jobs than lawyers. I know I am biased and that many of you will probably be upset and disagree, but the truth is that all across the world you can live without a lawyer, but you can’t live without doctors.
So who should get paid more? Well, in most other countries outside the U.S. doctors do not make much money. They probably get more respect but don’t get paid as much. I still feel that doctors should get paid more than lawyers, but the payment mechanism of this country continues to punish physicians. But this is for several reasons including the inability of the government to pay for the aging population, the rising costs of healthcare, and the sheer necessity of providing care to everyone in need. Perhaps those facts reveal that medicine is more important than law — those that cannot afford lawyers simply don’t get them and they do fine. But people need doctors to stay healthy and doctors but there are too many people that need doctors and it is too expensive for the government to pay for them all.
One final note is that I think it is interesting that the payment mechanism in law has not changed. Lawyers continue to get paid exorbitant hourly wages. The more senior attorney you are the higher your hourly rate. Lawyers get paid more for longer cases or more complicated ones. And most importantly, there is no incentive for lawyers to make things short and sweet — doing so decreases their billable hours.
But doctors have an incentive to work fast. They don’t get paid hourly. In fact, when they spend more time with someone it reduces their economic productivity.
I don’t need to spell out how to change this system. Anyone with a pea of a brain could figure out how to incentivize physicians to work more effectively.
Hopefully none of my lawyer friends are reading this!

Doctor or Lawyer: How do you find a good one? My take on the issue..

In our series of “Car Crashes in El Paso” the conversation is not complete without touching on the issue of the relative medical vs legal importance.  This article above by a doctor and attorney all wrapped into one touches on issues that at times creates intense debate as to the importance of either side.  What is indirectly taken from this article is that both professions have their obvious merits and skill sets that are at times in great demand.  What is new to this article is what has transpired in the last couple of years.  The ability to mindfully find the best in a class via the internet portals.  This new factor has begun to level the field for those wanting to know and “be in the know”. This new force to reckon with comes for the silent minorities of those willing to share their stories.

Finding the best doctor or lawyer may at times seem daunting in a time of need.  This poses a great question.  What doctor or lawyer do I choose? What I have learned over the last 3 decades offering care to my patients and working with many attorney is that a well thought out mindful approach is the best plan.

In today’s world of social media expansion many truths show up. Today we certainly live in the world where the voice of one individual can be heard in the tsunami of data ripping from through the internet.  Yesteryear, we would “Let your Fingers Do the Walking”. The pages would not tell you the hidden story behind the companies or individuals.  Those stories and emotions were lost to the abyss of time.  Today, we scroll away and find the deepest forms of data quickly and efficiently.  The stories are told in a way that the greatest power of our intuition is now coaxed in a direction that can now serve those in need much better.

The web, has shifted the burden of filtering through the selfish spun propaganda from the spinners to the people with mindful intents telling their truths.  No longer will the rampant spin keep its propellant fed from their creator, rather the true voices of all who are willing to share their sincere personal stories.   Simply put, the silent voices of the once squelched individual are now presented for all to see.

In today’s era of internet awareness, people do speak and boy do they speak loud and clear.  In the last decade we have been able to find quick inferences and commentaries of the silent minority.  This minority has been able to give insight into their experiences and their all too sought out prospective.

Let me be very clear… “Nothing beats word of mouth experiences: nevertheless, a simple google search such as those below may shed so much to all that seek”.  It truly is insightful to be in the know.

Welcome to the era of the people thanks to the amazing powerful search engines.

This is the era that empowers the search engines to find the truth.  Best wishes.
