My husband is an RN and he makes more than I do as a primary care doctor.
I’ve tried negotiating my rates to at least match his and I meet a strong push back and am made to feel like a money monger.
I’ve also been turned down for jobs because my ay rate was more than they were willing to pay when “other physicians have not requested that high a fee” and we will find a doctor who is willing to work with the pay bracket.
At the end of the day, I’m still making less as a primary care doctor than my husband who is an RN.
They make it hard for us to advocate for ourselves.
