Report: Family doctors scarce

Baltimore Sun, August 12, 2008
There are too few primary care doctors and nurses to meet growing healthcare needs, according to a report released by the National Association of Community Health Centers. The study also found availability depends on location, and a serious shortage of family physicians can be found in rural and poorer communities. Although many of these people are insured, 56 million Americans do not have a regular source of healthcare due to shortages of physicians in their communities, according to the report.
