I dove into the FEC data, and it's pretty clear:

Grassroots health professional donors far prefer Sanders and Warren to Biden and Buttigieg. 1/
For doctors, donations went mostly to Warren and Sanders, with Sanders slightly receiving more.

Buttigieg received a substantial portion.

Biden received very little.

@darakass @DrDooleyMD @AbdulElSayed @DrSriram @DoctorsforPete @Docs_4_Bernie To me this corroborates the polls which show that while medical trade groups/guilds/professional societies might not support policies like #MedicareForAll, grassroots doctors feel differently. 3/
@darakass @DrDooleyMD @AbdulElSayed @DrSriram @DoctorsforPete @Docs_4_Bernie For nurses, the results were even more stark:

Sanders overwhelmingly received the most donations, unsurprisingly given his endorsement by @NationalNurses and nursing support for #MedicareForAll.

Social workers 2nd most favored recipient is Warren.

These results were similar to those for nurses and for grassroots health professional donations overall.

Here is what I used: fec.gov/data/receipts/…

The FEC page is great. You can play around with the filters.

Please adjust and let me know if there are major errors. 10/

There are twice as many health professional donations to these four candidates (~44,000) vs. Trump (~22,000).

And that doesn't include the whole rest of the Dem field, past and present.
