Your point is well taken. Medical training now does include cost consideration.
When I trained 30 years ago, we were taught that it was unethical to consider cost when treating patients. There were not as many tests and technology to use then, and it made sense to "do everything" for every patient.
I made that comment to point out the difference in thinking that older physicians have had to make in their perspective.
