Harry Persaud as a doctor should possess a professional attitude to help his patients to have proper and necessary treatment so as to cure their illness or sickness. The general public has trust and expectation on doctor's professionalism. If a doctor does perform unnecessary procedures during an operation, that is totally unprofessional and more seriously putting a patient's life at risk. Besides, if we don't severely punish the doctor, the general public will worry that certain similar practitioners will do similar unnecessary procedures so as to earn extra money on doing the operation and we will worry that our lives would be at risk. Thus, this doctor should be put in jail.
Doctors have a code to abide by since the days of the Greeks. They should do no harm to the patient. Sometimes patients ask for innovative and experimental treatments but it has to be their choices. Insurance cannot catch every Doctor who takes matters into their own hands. Doctors should be hailed as much as bankers when they fail to follow ehtical standards.
Dr. Persaud performed unnecessary heart surgery on dozens of patients and lied to them about the reasons behind the surgeries. For that alone, Persaud deserves jail time and for his medical license to be stripped. Persaud did these surgeries so that he could get insurance payouts from the patients insurance. If Persaud had been trying new techniques and had been honest with his patients, then the outcome of his trial might have been different. Instead, he was only after money and did not put his patients first, as a doctor should.
Dr. Harry Persaud is a doctor who practiced in Westlake, Ohio. He has been jailed for ordering unnecessary tests, risky procedures, including heart surgery, and over-billing patients over $7 billion. This was a case of fraud in it's most simple form. When you are visiting a doctor, you are trusting that he or she has your best interest in mind and that he or she is honest, professional, knowledgable, and able to treat you as best as they can.
