Less than 1 in 5 docs in Canada are accepting new patients
Medpundit thinks this will happen in the US soon. As medicine becomes more of a business and fee-for-service becomes the norm, I’d say this is a good problem to have. Better having too much business than too little.
Ideally, as demand for doctors grow, reimbursement and compensation should rise to recruit new physicians to meet this demand. Of course, I’ll believe it when I see it.
