Primary care doctors growing scarce
San Francisco Chronicle, by Drew Joseph

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/2/2013 10:57:20 AM

Roughly 4 million additional Californians are expected to obtain health insurance by 2014 through the federal health law, an expansion that will likely exacerbate the state´s doctor shortage and could even squeeze primary care access in the Bay Area, experts say. Even without the Affordable Care Act, a worsening doctor shortage had been forecast as the state´s and nation´s population ages and grows, and as a generation of older doctors retires. But by mandating that individuals have insurance and expanding Medicaid, the law will extend coverage to an additional 30 million Americans and place a greater strain

Until government is forcibly removed from the equation of healthcare, our healthcare problems will only continue to get worse.

FTA: the AAMC report found that more than 30 percent of California´s doctors were 60 or older - the second highest rate of any state.

Ruh roh.

Not mentioned in the article - in 2014 most of the newly ´insured´ with be covered with an expanded Medicaid - with it´s very poor compensation for care providers. The answer is simple - you want to provide lots of medical care for (now mostly) immigrants from Mexico - allow illegal immigrant doctors to practice medicine in California. (I am being half sarcastic here).

Not to worry, why just around the corner is our answer.....Government doctors. Think I´m kidding? Watch as the Gov will offer free tuition to those entering the medical field. All ya hafta do is agree to work for X amount of years in a Gov run health care facility.

Over half of medical and dental schools are women , they usually but not all, work part time and will go corporate rather thn private practice which if not dead is dying a slow death.

Docs seeing themselves replaced by nurse practitioners and PA´s whenever and however possible. It´s been the plan all along. BTW, don´t believe that everything these mostly fine professionals do is really "checked " by the physician. It is not. Just telling the truth.

I took my visiting combat medic son in to his pediatrician last week because he brought the Type B flu home with him from his base. His doctor is a med professor at OU, and is one of few clinics that meet the strict criteria for being associated with OU-Health Science Center. He speaks three languages & has a keen eye on what´s going on in the medical field.

He asked my son what he wanted to study when he gets out of the Army in 2-1/2 years. He said maybe Physical Therapy.

Doc told him to consider a mid-range degree. He said PA´s are going to be "worth their weight in gold" in the medical market place since doctors are going to become more & more scarce because of Obamacare. One doctor is going to be overseeing multiple PAs. The patient is rarely going to see a real doctor.

Happy New Year.

Unless Obamacare is repealed or amended, Primary care doctors will become extinct.
You will be seen by a NP, a nurse, or even a med student. Primary care is the dodo bird of
Obamacare. Do you think a doctor will be willing, or will be able to afford, working with Medicaid-like reimbursement.

I´m disappointed by reading the negative slant of the care provided by Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners. Like it or not Obamacare passed. Americans are getting older and the number of primary care physicians is shrinking fast. There are not enough new grads and many more physicians are just quitting. There are only two ways to correct this deficit, flood the system with foreign physicians of questionable training or utilize the PA´s and NP´s. They are American trained and very experienced in treating the most common reasons to seek care in a primary care clinic. Your illness/ disease isn´t so special! This model frees the physicians to concentrate on patients whose conditions are very complex. It´s also the PA/NP´s job to direct the physician to the patients they need to see ASAP. Obamacare is here and it will be a disaster. PA´s and NP´s are your friends in this mess and they will be the vanguard of primary care. With all that said, there is not enough PA/NP´s to fill the void, we are all in for a bumpy ride. Full disclosure: I was a practicing PA for many years and I married one as well, so my opinions here are completely and proudly biased.

#16, it depends on the state whether a nurse practitioner must be supervised. In Colorado, I do not require supervision by a physician and can have an independent practice.

Be assured that I definitely know when a patient needs a physician.

My patients are extremely pleased with my services as they feel I listen to them more intently and spend more time with them than a physician would be able to.

You cannot grant access to millions more and not expect a shortage. Why would an American want to go to med school today with the cost of educationm, so many restrictions, and lower reimbursement ? Physicians from other countries may have gotten a free education and willing to accept less pay.

Next will come special VISAs for foreign physicians and nurses. There is only one local primary care physician in my directory that is white and English is his first language. It has been that way for several years.

Many doctors in this are have joined the hospitals.

For anyone concerned about the specter of "comprehensive" immigration reform becoming legal reality, the event provided two cold, hard slaps in the face.

The second, more stinging blow came with the realization that the anti-amnesty calvary didn´t arrive; while hundreds of pro-reform voices filled Houston´s City Hall, only three adults showed up to make the case

I have a suggestion. How about an exhibit on Tawana Brawley? If the purpose of the new National Museum of African American History and Culture at the Smithsonian is to remember racial controversies, as the proposed Trayvon exhibit seems to confirm, then how about an honest look at the phenomenon of hate crime hoaxes? Particular attention should be paid to the role of the media in both the Trayvon and Tawana materials. Unquestionably, the media stirred up racial animus, and these incidents both contributed to raising racial tensions.
