Malaysia is among the chosen countries for medical tourism due to its excellent healthcare services. Nevertheless, there are concerns if service providers are balancing the local and foreign patient’s demands. Due to the lack of discussion on medical practitioners’ behaviour towards local patients, this paper aims to analyse the similarities and differences of their behaviour on these two groups. Through literature analysis, it is found that unhealthy behaviour towards local patients is profound. Hence, the discussions are hoped to spark the policy-makers’ attention in restructuring the healthcare policy to realign the medical practitioners’ behaviour on both patient groups.
