Report Illustrates California’s Shortage of Primary Care Docs
A June report from the California HealthCare Foundation warned that a decline in the number of primary care physicians in the state could result in critical shortages that would affect the quality of care. The report found that just 16 of California's 58 counties had an acceptable amount of PCPs, and the shortage was most acute in rural counties.
