Depends on your specialty, work location, how many hours you're willing to work as well as debt. For the most part, you and family will be comfortable without worry about basic needs living on one physician's salary in most areas in the US.

HI Jessica, this depends on several factors, location, specialty and being such a wide variety I am providing the link for additional data. Keep in mind most Doctors have a large amount of student loan debt as well therefore their salaries are higher to assist in paying the debt. Some employers may also pay grants that will pay the debts. They have a lot of perks but they also have a lot of time spent learning, doing residency and practicing.
Hope this helps

Estelle’s Answer

Also remember that the more you work, the more income you will earn. When my kids were young, I worked fewer hours and made less money. There will be times when you are free to work longer hours, and there will be times when other life events might take priority. The great thing about practicing medicine is that you have the freedom to adjust your practice accordingly.

Depends on location and specialty. General practitioners can make about $150,000 - $300,000 per year. Subspecialty surgeons can make up to $800,000 per year. Physicians who invest in diagnostic equipment or boutique hospitals can make even more.
