Do you find the hands-on care of a physical therapist or the executive responsibility of a physician to be more rewarding?

I'm interested in becoming a physical therapist or a physician, specifically a PM&R (Physical Medicine and Rehab doctor). I've heard that physical therapy is one of the most rewarding occupations, but some say it can become monotonous. I've heard that being a doctor also rewarding, but a common criticism is that physicians do not have the opportunity to connect with patients on as personal of a level as physical therapists have. Between the two, which is the more rewarding and exciting? #doctor #medicine #physician #physical-therapist #physical-therapy #pmnr
