Was Doctor nerfed or buffed?

Would make this a poll but not many people respond to those, so I’ll just ask. Do you think Doctor was nerfed or buffed, and why?

    I like the fact that survivor get to save their progress on snapping out of it as long as they dont mess up on a skill check, however I think that his fully charged up black its really overpowered and should be nerfed.

    It was a buff. He's faster, more in control, stronger at loops.

    Slight buff, no stance switch slow down and base shock distance was increased which used to require an add-on to be useful.

    Unfortunately, the changes to Snap Out of It weakened almost all of the add-ons since it is so easy to move from Tier 3 to Tier 1

    Madness is useless now as a delay and his add-ons all nerfed. Also no more treatment grabs

    Slight buff.

    Buff. Doctor is now a strong Killer. He doesn’t need to switch modes to shock and his Static Blast gives him so much information and helps keep pressure on the Survivors.

    Buff. Stance switching being removed and Static Field being changed to Static Blast were quite nice.

    He is fixed this is how Doctor should have been from the very start

    This was a huge buff. Doc has better map pressure now and can completely counter certain loops. He no longer has to switch stances which helps him a tremendous amount. Not to mention he has the best tracking in the game along side good map pressure and chase potential. I’ve been a doc main for about a year and a half and i can confidently say this was a massive improvement!

    In my (limited) experience playing Doctor before the rework, I would say he is roughly the same power wise as he was, he is just more fun now. And even playing against him is significantly more fun. Doctor before the rework would usually get the job done, but it didn't feel fun for either side imo.

    Doc was a very weak Killer, He's now Probably Mid-tier so it was a big buff overall.

    Buff in some aspects and a nerf other aspects. The buffs however gave him what he needed to perform in the current meta while his nerfs were less important.
