What, and give up their Mercedes and the $5 million house? Now, how they gonna earn a living except by using their medical license?


I don't know about "specialists" and their wealth. But my GP does not live in an even one million dollar house. He does have a very busy practice.

I have heard from friends, clients, who have doctors in their families, that many actually will be retiring, if they have not already. Perhaps they have already made their millions, have five Mercedes and the $5 million house. By retiring, they no long have to pay huge amounts for insurance to cover their behinds. They can live off investment dividends as they are now so rich.

The big thing is, who will replace docs that retire?
