Sounds like primary care physicians are going through the same pains in Canada
“Family medicine is a tough sell. Patient needs are more complex than ever. They’re older and not coming through their doctor’s door with one ailment. Some have diabetes and heart disease. Others have had a stroke and are now battling cancer. These aren’t patients that can be seen and sent on their way at the end of a 15-minute appointment . . .
. . . The fee schedule has also caused family doctors pain and led to a lack of interest in the profession.”
