National Survey Identifies Physician Struggles

The Physicians Foundation just released the results of its fifth Biennial Physician Survey, which found that physicians are struggling to maintain morale levels, adapt to changing delivery and payment models, and to provide patients with reasonable access to care. 
• 80% of physicians report being overextended or at capacity with no time to see additional patients

These findings and more will be discussed at the Medical Society’s Annual Meeting and Reception on October 26, 2016.
