Forbes, June 13, 2013

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.
