Poll finds Mass. doctors support healthcare overhaul law

Boston Globe, October 22, 2009

A new poll indicates that physicians in Massachusetts overwhelmingly support the state's 2006 healthcare overhaul, which is considered a national model. Doctors supported the law by a 5-to-1 margin, and three-quarters of the 2,135 physicians surveyed said they wanted the law to continue. But nearly half said there should be changes, most notably to ensure more comprehensive coverage for their patients and to control costs.
