Texas has too few primary care physicians, groups say

AP/Dallas Morning News, September 8, 2009
Advocacy groups say the number of primary care physicians in Texas isn't keeping pace with the state's growing population, with rural areas taking the hardest hit. There are 27 Texas counties that have no doctor at all, many in West Texas or along the border with Mexico, according to the Texas Department of State Health Services. Some residents must travel across counties to find basic medical care.
