Not sure what your angle is, but a doctor's fee structure is time-driven
like a lawyer's or anybody else's when their professional life is their
business. The number of patients a doctor sees in a day is predictable
(it is normal over time), and the amount of money they need to bring in
is known or predictable. They spread one across the other to determine
how much revenue each 15-minute time slot has to generate. You're paying
them for their time, even when the bill is for an exam.
