It all depends how the doctors practice is setup in which jurisdiction and what area of medicine they practice in but, your general observation is correct.

In fact, the billing code system is based on ICD-9 in most provinces. You can get the price list off the internet for what they can charge for various clinical encounters. You can also request your records from the MoH and it will outline every encounter, encounter code, date, time and what the province allows the Doctor to charge for that type of encounter.

The major difference is that doctors work off a set price list. Lawyers set their rate. There is no set standard for what they can charge and the LSUC doesn't maintain governance over billing nor is there a ministry responsible for setting the expectations.

It would be nice if there was one... Just like Doctors have...

While every lawyer has the right to set their own rate, many use this as a rule of thumb (with variance based upon reputation and region):

Doctors work for the government; lawyers for themselves. Lawyers and plumbers decide what their time is worth, although I suspect both groups would trade that right for a doctor's salary.
