Okay, let me get this straight: Psychiatrists who loved doing talk therapy are upset because it doesn’t pay as well as it used to, so they switch over to prescribing drugs instead, are stressed out because of the longer hours and demands (not to mention they stop feeding their souls with the work they love) and are insistent that their standard of living remain exactly the same?

Poor psychiatrists. I think they need to see a good therapist, one who can help them discover that money isn’t everything. Oh, and maybe they can help with those control issues!

  2. whaa! i can’t live on less than $2000/day and even had to hire my wife so i don’t have to let any of it trickle down to some undeserving underling! call the whaaaaaambulance!

  3. k-
    you can be sure that young dr. levin will indeed choose sacrificing his patient care to make a few extra bucks.

  4. I’m sure there are exceptions, but I’d bet my house most shrinks think they’re entitled to the big bucks — they went to medical school! — and wouldn’t settle for less. I’d be surprised if shrinks, as a class, were any less money-grubbing than lawyers or other professionals in this country.
