Just about everyone likes their doctor
The nonprofit Physicians Foundation recently released a survey of more than 2,000 Americans who assessed the state of our health care system, from the patient's point of view. There were essentially two big takeaways: People are incredibly enthusiastic about their primary care doctors. And they are overwhelmingly pessimistic about the future of medicine. Seventy-nine percent of those who had visited the doctor in the past year said they were "satisfied" or "extremely satisfied" with their experience. One in five said they were "somewhat satisfied." A paltry 1 percent reported not being satisfied at all.
