Patrick Soon Shiong Net Worth : $9.9 billion

The age old myth which states that doctors are the front runners in earnings is certainly holding out to be true. Patrick Soon Shiong has a net worth of $9.9 billion. Besides playing the role of a surgeon in everyday life, Patrick also dons the hat of an entrepreneur.

He currently serves as the chairman of Chan Soon Shiong Family Foundation and Chan Soon Shiong Institute for Advanced Health. Most of his fortune has been derived from the $5.6 billion sale of his company American Pharmaceutical Partners. The mega sale took place in 2008. When he sold another company Abraxis BioScience in 2010, around $3 billion in cash and stocks were injected to his already vast fortune.
