I'll admit that I often want to say "OK BOOMER" to my older colleagues. I fear becoming entitled & clueless as some of them have become.I think it depends on the doc. I know what you mean, but I really like to think it's more personality than anything else. A hard worker, who stays up to date and avoids stagnation into his/her 60's was probably the same way (or a bit less) in his/her 30/40's. The slackers, the same.
I definitely see slow down with docs in their 60's but it doesn't need to be compromising clinically or even production wise if managed well.
