Cancer doctors ripping off sick patients

Oncologists, unlike other doctors, often buy prescription drugs at discounted prices and sell them directly to patients at a significant profit rather than sending them to a pharmacy. Some say that these sales are unethical, arguing that profit-motive could effect what course of treatment a patient receives. They are in effect profiteering from the very sickness they are hired to treat.
