ACA could be further hamstrung by shortage of doctors

CBS New York, November 5, 2013

A doctor shortage is threatening to make the roll-out of the Affordable Care Act even more difficult — and it could create lines for care and services. New Yorkers are notorious for wanting things immediately, and that includes medical care . But even doctors who support Obamacare say there could be delays due to more patients and fewer doctors, CBS 2's Dick Brennan reported Monday. "It's like shopping during Christmas time. I mean, you're going to have a tough time if you have all of these people demanding services at the same time," said Dr. Steven Lamm of the NYU School of Medicine.
