I mean, yeah. If your options are doc review or hang a shingle, I'm hanging a shingle 10 times out of 10. That doesn't mean it's A) a great idea, or B) I'm somehow less fucked.
But once you have that doc review stench on your resume, no one will touch you. At least going solo you have a fighting chance. Also, to be fair, I think a lot of dudes who do doc review are also aspiring solo practitioners and they do doc review to stay afloat.
