    Considering how much they have to know and how important what they do is (as well as how much they had to pay to learn it), I have no problems with doctors making a lot of money, particularly since with the money they make, they pay their office staff, nurses, etc.

    I'd much rather doctors be rich than professional gamblersstockbrokers.

    •  actually that's after they pay office staff (0+ / 0-)

      insurance, etc. Many office staff are underpaid and without health insurance, for many docs it's just a business.

      When I can,I do go elsewhere to places doctors make  a fraction as much and patients have better outcomes.

      For me they're just a replaceable overpaid worker. Not god, or even close.

      After all those folks stop dieing for lack of care I'll worry about docs getting rich. Until then to live  in such gross opulance is an abomination.

      being referred to a "specialist" who did less than the primary referring physician did and charged double for the experience!  We would be wise to remember that 50% of doctors graduate in the bottom half of their class.
