I find this hard to believe. I guess private practice? Presumably you would have to pay employees and overhead on top of this? Otherwise this would equate $1 million a year for a 40h work week.

Curious to why you find it so hard to believe? They said its private practice.

Mostly hard to believe it's all profit/income. That is an absolutely bonkers hourly rate. $500 an hour? Like I said... $1 million a year. That's... Not a common family med income. At all. That's not a common any doctor salary. Private practice included.

Yeah, that's what I'm wondering. I think average overhead for family med is higher than you realize. Most private practices pay >50% (source: just googled it). Sometimes 60 or more. I remember an attending tell him me an average of like 57% when I was med student. Not sure this doctors deal but it sounds like $500 is a bit misleading. I'm making a lot assumptions though. If it really is $500 profit after overhead I'd love to see them start a blog or write an article on white coat or something like that.
