Doctors are often praised for their expertise in treating a particular disease or condition, but are paid well enough to support families and their families.
Some have been called the “gold standard” in medicine, while others are seen as “cheap.”
Here’s a look at how much doctors are paid in the U.S. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average annual salary for a pediatrician is $104,500.
That’s slightly higher than the average salary for all medical occupations, which is $83,000.
But that’s still just a fraction of the overall pay for pediatricians in the country.
That means that even though many pediatricians are considered to be extremely skilled in their fields, their pay still pales in comparison to their colleagues in other professions.
“A lot of pediatricians get paid like a lot of other physicians,” says Dr. David Katz, a pediatric urologist at New York-Presbyterian Hospital.
“It’s not uncommon to see them get paid less than a typical surgeon or an ENT surgeon.”
Doctors are paid based on a formula that ranges from a percentage of a pediatric’s salary to the number of years they have been practicing.
That percentage can be as high as 90 percent or as low as 1 percent.
The formula does not take into account medical school completion or the experience of the person who gets paid.
Doctors in the United States are paid on a fixed salary for their work.
But the formula can also be adjusted to account for changes in the economy.
When the economy was booming, the formula could be adjusted upwards to account on how much more the doctor was paid.
That could include salary increases, the retirement of a doctor, or other changes.
When it was struggling, the percentage could be reduced.
“The doctor gets paid on the basis of how well they perform in their field, not on how well the economy does,” Katz says.
Doctors are also paid based not only on their years of practice, but also on their ability to teach, and how much they make as a result of those hours.
According for the Bureau, the median annual salary of a US pediatrician was $97,200 in 2015.
But this was a drop from $111,300 in 2011, according to the BLS.
The median salary of an ENT doctor was $110,700 in 2015, and the median salary for an ENT specialist was $116,100 in 2015 according to BLS data.
“If you have a doctor who is really, really good at what they do and can get paid well, they’re a pretty high-pay position,” says Katz.
The bottom line is that even the top paid pediatricians, like Dr. Michael Vial, earn far less than other doctors.
“That’s not to say they’re necessarily not paid well,” Katz explains.
“But what you see with a lot in this field is you’re seeing that the pay is not as high, and you’re also seeing that it’s not as easy as it could be.
And you have to do the math.”
The Bureau of Health Statistics defines a physician as someone who “provides services to patients for a fee, or for compensation, for services rendered in the primary care setting.”
That includes primary care, emergency departments, maternity and pediatric care, and mental health care.
Doctors who perform routine, routine, or non-emergency surgery and are also specialists in general internal medicine are considered specialists.
The bureau also considers an orthopedic surgeon to be a “specialist.”
And while there are other categories of physician, such as pediatricians who specialize in pediatrics, primary care and obstetrics and gynecology, the bureau does not include a physician specializing in pediatric care.
There are other reasons that doctors are being paid less, Katz says, but he cautions that it should not be the main reason.
“I think it’s important to recognize that the people who are making these decisions, there’s a lot more than just the numbers,” he says.
“They’re also looking at the people that are earning the most money.”
