"I am a family physician, practicing in Manhattan, with a home in Brooklyn (I purchased the home 12 years ago). On my salary, if I had to purchase a home now, I would be living in the Poconos and commuting 3 hours into Manhattan. No primary care doctor I know can afford Manhattan (or Brooklyn) real estate on our current earnings. The specialists with gimmicks (Botox, colonoscopy, cardiac catheterization, plastic surgeons, etc.) are the ones making $600K-1M." ['Doctors are the New Bankers']
