A sorry state of affairs....

More bad news on the horizon - not much of a surprise as this trend was going on since I started medical school in 1996, however, I feel that the backbone has broken and the demoralization of primary care has, in essence, become the end result of the reliance and emphasis of overspecialization, supported by the the Medicare payment schedule equations and de-valuing of primary care visits in general.
