It seems very counter intuitive to know that  doctors who take care of poorer patients receive poor performance rating. This is true according  to the data collected from surveys which are given out by the insurance companies. But aren’t the wealthy patients hard to please since they  make their own payment instead the insured patients are the one’s that seem to be not pleased. I feel this is strange and it may have something to do with the medicare or insurance company to not pay doctors well. This can lead to some serious complications if they don’t find out exactly why these doctors are getting such a low ratings from treating poorer  patients. It can also be that wealthy patients are able to understand doctors better through communication  or they may be satisfy by far less care than poorer patients.  Many of the physician will try to move out from their working location and refuse to take care of these poorer patients. Therefore it’s important to know why these people act in this way towards health care providers.
