Doc, are you just being a bit oversensitive today or is this your normal frame of mind? Imagine what your life would have been if you were a cop or a trucker. Imagine getting cussed at all day long by everyone around you.
I know you literally worked your ass off to become a doctor. Did you think it was going to be a smooth ride once you got into private practice. Should criticism of your profession vanish because you joined it?
I have seen more doctors who I considered not worthy of the title than ones who were. Imagine being a vet where the patient couldn't tell you where it hurt and how bad.
My old grey hair family doctor died a decade ago. He was one of the few that I always called Sir if any other patients were within hearing distance. My current chiropractor is another who fits the title also. These men and their families were/are familiy friends.
We're all in the same income bracket but I wouldn't join your profession for triple the income. The stress level is much higher than I would want to tolerate.
You know if you're a good doctor or not, I can't make that decision without being your patient and talking with your fellowmen and the RN's. I hope you are because if you are then your sense of satisfaction at the end of each day can be tremendous.
Hear's hoping you have a Happy New Year.
The author has a two digit IQ. But don't worry, he makes up for it in pure ego.
What a putz.
Perhaps you could offer some analysis and conclusion for the data that you present.

Live by the Commandments because death could be the in next step you take.
Huh. Somehow I think a lot of bad actors are after his good doctor. He walks around with a big bull's eye on his back.
(You could try a better state--leave all those doc-hating Pennsylvanians behind.)
