I am a grunt. I am in the trenches of medicine , right now working at an Urgent Care center. Yes, it is my choice but this is the problem with healthcare. This was just sent to me by one of my readers. It seems Dr. Callahan needs an assistant:

This was posted on jobfocus.com for all to see so I am not digging up any dirt. And her picture is used to show that she is a real person. Basically I am just jealous.
Can you imagine making so much money as a doctor that you need a personal assistant? I would love that. No, actually I would want a bodyguard. I would hire Vance Lassey, MD. And my friend Lou Savarese. He is an ex-boxer. So, two bodyguards. Both are over 6’5 ft tall. And then I would have them dress in black suits and sun glasses and I would rule the world!
And that is the problem with the disparity of incomes between physicians.
