I've often thought that having a medical practice means running a small--or not-so-small--business. Some people are good at that and enjoy it, and some aren't and don't. But I think that very few people go into medicine because they aspire to be businessmen and businesswomen. If they did, they'd go into business. So there must be a substantial number of physicians who spend way too much time running their business and way too little time practicing medicine, leading to widespread dissatisfaction. Many doctors can escape this by taking a salaried position, but are there enough of those? And are they renumerative enough to make a doctor feel good about making the switch?
