We've come a long way since the early days of medicine, with an unprecedented rise in unpronounceable names of diseases and the need to schedule appointments to get our medical needs taken care of. While a physician's effort is still arduous, he does have a relatively softer condition than the country general practitioner of the past.

In a documentary concerning an urbanized city, a doctor describes the early days of doctors in the area. History shows that the first immigrant to come to the city was a physician. This doctor was at the time on an expedition to explore the opportunities in the community. It was obvious that the area wasn't overloaded with his kind of customers, so he returned to greener pastures and a much more lucrative medical practice.

The doctors who already resided in this scantily populated area were having a difficult time making a living at their profession. Once the civil war came, they got their things together and took off. Doctors in the 1800's were hailed as heroes in that community. Pursuing a career as a doctor was a difficult undertaking for the men (and a few women) of that era. It involved grueling work, no guaranteed salary, and the willingness to toil around the clock, throughout the year. Those that could paid their medical bills, but most simply did not have the funds to do so.

Rarely did a night go by without a hurried summons to a sick bed. The poor doctor, and any nearby neighbors who were asleep, would awaken to sounds of stomping feet on his porch as well as a frantic pounding on the door. In the chilly night hours, the exhausted doctor would have to saddle up his horse or prepare his buggy, for a trip to the home of the afflicted.

Payment was not always made in coin for the country doctor. On numerous occasions, the patients were forced to cover their bill with farm products like corn, or by laboring on behalf of the doctor. Some doctors sold home made medicines as a side business, to supplement their meager payroll. The physician in this documentary was one of these doctors.

Another doctor of that era, with several post graduate honors and degrees, was known to manufacture, advertise, and sell specific cures, as "ethics" back then were not as strict as today. His neuralgia and headaches remedies found a fair amount of takers. At a cost of three doses for ten cents, the patient was guaranteed that his problem would certainly be alleviated in five to twenty minutes.

Other doctors opened their own pharmacies to earn pocket money. The first drugstore to open on a city's main thoroughfare was started by one such enterprising physician. Taking his lead, another three doctors decided to start their own pharmacies as well. Eventually the first hospital was built in the area, which allowed doctors to work in far better conditions; and soon after more and more hospitals were established. The medical community came to have increased professionalism, with its own motto and code of conduct, along with better facilities and education.
