Dr. Weissman singled out the statement that older psychiatrists cannot afford to retire. We feel that our statement has been taken out of context. In fact, the article states, “However, in terms of decision to retire, one major factor that is not dealt with in the study is the financial aspirations and overall financial situation for the physician. It is very likely that many psychiatrists of retirement age continue to work because they cannot afford to retire.” Note that this statement is merely a conjecture on our part and is not an issue that was examined in our analyses. It does, however, present an interesting topic for future research.
