BroÖ.

And she has no contraindication to oral bisphosphonates.

Another patient I had was given a customised combination steroid / moisturizer / antibiotic cream from private derm which was $300+, when the same individual creams can prolly be bought at $50 tops.

Most of the time itís willing buyer, willing seller.
But the problem is that many patients are not even made aware of the alternatives.
What about this dr who accuses specialists of profiteering giving IV bisphosphonatez? Sotong or satki?

Patient with osteoporosis do you offer an old auntie IV bisphosphonates straight up or discuss management options like PO bisphosphonates costing 10% of the cost?
The poor auntie didnít even know what the medicine is for until I explained it to her.

Clear problem of conflict of interest because Drs can profit from actual sale and dispensing of the medication they prescribe.
Polyclinic drs see poor patients. But not all patients are poor. I agree drs shouldnt take advantage of ignorant patients. But would you have looked at it differently if "poor auntie" was instead some rich tai tai?
I think both ways it is wrong.
Question why is a "poor auntie" going to expensive pte specialist for treatment?
It is like accusing expensive high end restaurants of overcharging for crab steak lobster.
Poor auntie should not go to high end specialist clinics and expect cheap treatment.
But overall should ban drs from profiteering from prescribing and dispensing medicines

Erm, I did mention she did not have contraindications to PO bisphosphonates.

If yíall see enough patients, there is a lot of information asymmetry out there.
You will see even poor patients going to private specialists simply because they do not know any better.
Some think only certain meds can be found at certain specialists, or wrongly assume that thereís only one management option available.

Of course itís not in the private doctorís interest to right site the patient because it is not in his own interest.
