    Help in understanding a sentence

    Hello,
    I have a sentence that I didn't understand:
    A recent paper described a postal questionnaire survey of doctors involved in treating the survivors of the Omagh bombing in 1998.
    The authors concluded that 25% of the sample had post-traumatic stress disorder and were critical of them for not seeking treatment

    What I want to ask is: What is the meaning of the world "critical" -

    Does the meaning is from the 25% many of them don't want a treatment?
    Thanks.

    The authors were critical of the 25% for not seeking treatment.
    The authors criticised the 25% for not seeking treatment.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
