Man's Responsibility to Heal

Rabbi Steinsaltz cites the biblical source from which the Talmud derives the permissibility of a doctor to treat patients. He then discusses the related topic of whether a doctor is indeed obligated to treat patients. He questions whether such an obligation would influence a doctor's permission to receive payment for administering medical treatment and a doctor's permission to refuse to treat patients in need of medicine.
