I'm not a physician; however, I will say that I exceed 1 and 3, drive a 6 year old minivan (not sure how that fits in), and I have a lot of sympathy for doctors. My family's GP of 14 years is now retiring. Her main reason for selling off her practice and getting out of medicine is the paperwork. She was an independent so she and her small staff had to do all of the paperwork. I believe that some months she spent more time on paperwork than with patients -- much of that paperwork is required just to get paid a reduced amount for her services.Keith I am glad for your GP that she had the financial wherewithal, presumably due to the privilege of having been able to practice in the medical profession, to retire on her own terms. Now tell me again why she deserves any sympathy for having been forced to engage in a lucrative profession which allowed her to retire basically as she pleased.
