Doctor pay rises to $221K for primary care
Physician compensation rose only slightly last year as more of doctors' compensation was based on the quality of care they provide and whether their patients are satisfied, a new salary survey indicates. The 2013 Medical Group Management Physician Compensation and Production Survey Report showed physician pay increases were largely flat, rising about 3 percent for primary care doctors – family doctors, internists and pediatricians — to $220,942 in 2012 compared to $212,840. Meanwhile, compensation for specialists rose 3 percent to $396,233 from $384,467 in 2011. Pay ranged from $532,269 for cardiologists to $301,000 for obstetricians, according to MGMA's list of selected specialties.
