Perhaps most disturbing, more than half of doctors surveyed by The Physicians Foundation (http://www.physiciansfoundation.org/)http://global.fncstatic.com/static/v/all/img/external-link.png revealed that they will cut back on patients (including Medicare) or reduce patient access to their care over the next three years.
Doctors are exhausted, and we simple can’t handle all the paperwork or the growing list of medical problems presented to us by the chronically ill. This loss of man hours comes at a time when ObamaCare is expanding the entitlement and we are already faced with a physician shortage which will reach 160,000 by 2025, according to the Association of American Medical Colleges. This patient expansion is taking place while we, doctors, are contracting -- it is a perfect storm.
