    Proper documentation/insurance compliance alone means OT for virtually all docs and NPs. Not to mention on-call hours (especially for surgeons), etc.

    Anyone who thinks you folks work a cushy 8-5 M-F, and then go home - even once established in private practice - has no idea how medicine in this country works.

    Based on the above rates, an average Family Practice physician would pay 25% of their gross income. OB 35%, Cardiology 45%, Orthopedics 54% and Neurosurgery 57%. It looks like a great way to incentivize physicians to continue their average 60 hour work week (FYI, mine averages about 80-90 hrs/wk). I'm sure you won't have to wait at all for your appointment or procedure. Of course they could always bring back Selective Service and draft us all into the military then obligate service.
