NB doctor earnings

The province is releasing doctors salaries five years after the auditor general recommended it.

The figures on what doctors were paid last year show 24 physicians making over $1 million.

The top doc, Stewart MacMillan; a radiologist at the Miramichi Hospital, raked in just over $1.5 million.

The Health department points out these are gross earnings and do not take into account expenses such as staff salaries or rent.
