But I wouldn't assume a doctor is rich.

Reminds me of this joke:

A doctor had no heat and looked down into his cellar to find a few feet of water down there. He called a plumber who brought a heavy duty pump and emptied it out quickly, found and fixed the leak in 15 minutes and presented a bill for $800. The doctor was upset. He said the bill was too much. I am a doctor and even I do not make money at that high a rate.

The plumber remarked, "Neither did I when I was a doctor."

A good plumber may be worth that. Not having to learn his trade at your expense.
