Definition An often egocentric yuppie* who is a doctor, dentist, or other highly paid health care worker.

*Yuppie = Young upwardly mobile professional Health yuppies’ goals tend to pivot around material gains rather than the altruistic principles that traditionally lead physicians and others to the health care field.
