Cincinnati-area doctors dwindle in number

Cincinnati Enquirer, February 11, 2008
The Greater Cincinnati region has about 4,900 doctors now, 748 fewer than it should have for its population, according to the Cincinnati MD Resource Center. Doctors claim low pay from insurers is causing the shortage. Those who hire doctors say it's difficult to attract new ones to the region unless they have family there or have lived in the area previously.
