There are about one million doctors in the U.S. today. There are 24 hours in a day, I’ve been told. The average physician works for close to nine of those hours.

That’s if a physician is not whittling down those nine hours by taking on tasks not directly related to care, like working out insurance paperwork, and the rest.
