A new survey finds that primary care physicians are disappointed
with their salaries, but largely satisfied with their careers.
According to the study from Physicians Practice magazine and physician
recruitment firm Merritt Hawkins, 53% of primary care physicians
feel "let down" by their salary. While almost 70% of respondents
indicated they are "very satisfied" or "somewhat satisfied" with
their careers, only 38% said they would enter primary care medicine
if they were to start over again. Overhead costs were also a major
concern for respondents. Roughly 60% of physicians estimated that
between 40 and 70% of their revenue is spent on overhead.
