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.

A paltry 1 percent reported not being satisfied at all.
