The review deals with “physicians' dissatisfaction (PD) due to working conditions.” The definition of PD is not standardized, and therefore, published papers report different data. It is, however, undeniable that the position of the physicians within the society has altered dramatically and that these changes are distressing. Every human deserves the right to be happy and fulfilled in his/her vocation. Too many physicians dislike their work after some years in practice. Of note, the financial aspect is not the first relevant cause of their dissatisfaction. The most important causes of dissatisfaction are the loss of autonomy, political mismanagement, and many bureaucratic hurdles. The increasing dissatisfaction among many physicians cannot simply be dismissed as inconvenient. The causes of their dissatisfaction are real because they interfere with a good medical care of patients. Dissatisfied physicians can negatively influence the workplace. Physicians should enjoy good working conditions and communities to which they can connect. This will allow them to devote time and energy building ties in their communities. There is an urgent need for all stakeholders to reconsider how to create a working environment that would reduce PD.
