See above.

I find that figure very unlikely. In 2014, the official (legal) population of the USA was almost 319 million. If your figure is correct, that means there were 7,975,000 doctors (almost 8 million). The only figure I can find online shows that there were 1,045,910 doctors (a little over 1 million). That's one doctor for every 305 people.
