Believe me, we patients don't like it either. I've mentioned some recent heart problems here, and one thing I can say about my new cardiologist is -- he looks just like the top of an HP laptop. Because that's all I've ever seen of him. He sits at a desk behind a laptop and, thus far, has never actually touched me. It's questionable whether I would recognize him in public, and I'm sure he wouldn't know me.

Getting back to the OP's question:
2000: Programmer, large engineering firm, simulation software
2019: Programmer, DARPA research lab, autonomous vehicle controls.
and the biggest change
July 2019: Retiree, boat, fishing
