We hear a lot about patient rights and what's best for the patient. But a conversation I overheard yesterday got me thinking about doctors' rights. Does the doctor have the right to refuse a patient? If so, under what circumstances? And should doctors be offered incentives to take on patients that may be considered high-risk? Is that 'good medicine'?
