Is the success of the psychiatrist measured by the percentage of his patients who did not commit suicide?

If 99% of his patients commit suicide. Those are personal decisions made by sentient individuals who have CHOSEN to remove themselves from a life of great pain.
Just by consulting a psychiatrist, before they leave, to discuss their options does not mean the psychiatrist has failed.
It means the psychiatrist laid out the realistic options before them and the patient did not like those options and went for a permanent solution.

I'm sure he judges his success, by how many people he as NOT cured. The number of paying patients(clients) he has.

Yes. Dead patients cannot pay the "session fees".

No,that is a fallacy.

That would not work because if that was measured, then no psychiatrist would ruin her practice by taking the most desperate patients who were most at risk of suicide.

No, but it's probably a good measuring stick of their competency.

The ones who want to kill Trump. Those who don't are obviously nutjobs.
