'I feel like I did something terribly wrong': How hospital physicians feel about their net worth 

Medscape surveyed 10,011 hospitalists across more than 29 specialties from Oct. 7 to Jan. 17 in its "Hospitalist Wealth and Debt Report."

Here's what four anonymous physicians said about their happiness with their net worth:

 "I am very satisfied. I could retire tomorrow but I stay in medicine because I find being a physician satisfying and working as an academic to be rewarding." 

"A 25 percent decline in retirement savings over the last year, with retirement looming, is a terrible situation. But it will come back over in the next few years."

"It's acceptable, but I'm somewhat worried about outliving my savings."

"I am freaking out about only being halfway to my retirement goal. I feel like I did something terribly wrong by working like a dog for 30+ years only to have the world explode into a viral and political hell that cuts MD pay and limits what we can do for our patients."
