  • Yes typically it does

    Private health care typically has better doctors because they can pay more for the better doctors and the better doctors go to private health care because it is not as demanding with better pay. Private health care can also provide the doctors with the latest and greatest in technology allowing them to perfect their skills further.

  • Private Health Care Has Better Doctors

    Yes, private health care has better doctors as doctors are given incentive to work harder and better. That incentive is, of course, a higher pay rate. Unfortunately, publicly funded doctors are often of a lower caliber. A trip to the local sliding scale clinic will prove the truth of these words.

  • Private health care has better doctors.

    It is widely accepted that private health care has better doctors. Private health care is usually more expensive, so these services can afford to get better doctors and better treatments. Although public health care is often adequate or as good as its private counterpart, private can usually guarantee the best service.

  • Private health care would improve the quality and efficiency of doctors.

    The main reason for this is that doctors working in the private sector have more incentive to work. Government employees receive the same salary regardless of their input of work; private sector employees receive monetary compensation for going the extra mile or squeezing in that extra patient. That's the magic of capitalism; by allowing the amount work to directly correlate with salary, you create a desire to work harder, smarter, and longer.

  • Yes, in general this is true; private health care physicians are many times able to provide more up-to-date health care options, but a public health care doctor still has great merit.

    Research shows that private health care doctors many times have greater access to more continued education, funding, advanced technology, etc.; however, a public health care physician that does not have that access can indeed use their God-given ability and desire to truly serve people, to aid in the healing process as well. Life experience teaches us that patient, doctor and man's creator are an unmatchable team!

  • Private health care has better doctors, because the privatized money allows for more competitive salaries to attract the best doctors.

    Private health care naturally has the best doctors, because it has more money. Public health care relies on governmental funding and governmental funding for health care is scarce these days. Private health care can afford to pay the best doctors the money they seek and, thus, they are inevitably attracted to private hospitals and practices.

  • Private health care does have better doctors because there is more money for extra education and learning classes and conferences.

    Private health care doctors make a larger salary than public health care workers. They also work for companies that are able to pay for them to attend multiple health conferences and stay up to date on current health news, which is not always the case in the public sector. The best doctor is one that continues to grow over their career, which is easier to do in private health care.

  • Private health care has better doctors, because they have fewer regulations to contend with.

    I believe that we have much better health care when we go to doctors who are in private practice. The health co-ops have far too many restrictions on the doctors they hire, and they don't pay those doctors well, so they probably attract the doctors who are either just out of school and need a job, or they can't find jobs elsewhere. With private health care, not a type of "group health care", the doctors are much more motivated to be the best they can be, provide much better service, and are generally more knowledgeable and take better care of their patients.

  • Freedom of choice

    Private health care allows people to spend their money on the medical services they require, and not those that the government wishes to use taxpayers' money on. Moreover, it gives customers the ability to choose the doctor they want to be treated by or the Hospital they want to be treated in - based on the quality of the service provided. This is an incentive for doctors, and indeed hospitals as a whole, to work harder and more intelligently, and to provide the best service possible On the other hand, it is difficult to change from one doctor/hospital to another if you are using public health care. There is a low incentive to improve, and too many regulations in the public sector.

  • Private health care does not have better doctors, based on research.

    It's a common misconception that private health care comes with higher educated or more successful doctors. But, studies performed by the World Health Organization indicate the that quality of care in socialized medicine systems is comparable to, or often exceeds, that of privatized health care systems. The educational requirements of doctors under both systems are similar, and compensation is similar, based on experience.

  • Private Medical Doctors have Financial Incentives that are at Odds with Patient's Interests.

    A private doctor is always under the temptation of corruption. The remuneration of private medicine makes it subject to difficult to detect corruption. The private medical practitioner is likely to deliberately refrain to treat adequately his or her patient in order to increase the likelihood of seeing them for many billable visits or medical procedures. Competition is likely to fail helping this fundamental bias because patients tend to pick or be assigned a private doctor inflexibly by their insurance carrier. Furthermore, it is medically ill-advised to switch doctors in the middle of treatment. Thus the inelastic demand for medical treatment opens opportunity to mass, and possibly collaborative, corruption.

  • No, a doctor is a doctor.

    Any doctor can choose to go public or private. What makes a good doctor is somebody that doesn't need to be paid any extra or at all to want to help people. In my opinion, these people make better decisions. Also, lots of ground breaking research and developments have been made by public hospitals. Most of the world's most difficult cases have been solved by public doctors. Public doctors have specialized units that are shared with other hospitals and private ones do not. Private hospitals also don't have a 24/7 running A&E.

  • Private Health Care Doesn't Have Better Doctors

    To say that private healthcare has better doctors than public healthcare doesn't make any sense. With that in mind, doctors deal with patients that have public and private healthcare. They don't care which type of insurance a person has as long as that office accepts that particular healthcare provider's plans.

  • Not inherently

    Even if it tends to work out that way the quality will depend on how the health care program is run. A government could take drastic measures to guarantee quality doctors and then they would be of a better quality.
