How do you know if your doctor is a good fit?
The Tampa Bay Times recently released a survey asking about their physician experience and the results were not encouraging.
The survey revealed that almost three quarters of the doctors surveyed had poor ratings and only half of those surveyed rated their colleagues.
Dr. Richard J. Smith, who led the survey, said the survey is important because it helps inform the medical profession and the general public about the challenges facing doctors in the coming year.
“This is a time of transition for doctors,” he said.
“We’re going through a major change in medicine.
We’re not as focused on care as we used to be, and that’s a big challenge.”
There’s not enough time to make the transition, to be able to focus on patient care and be in a position to help our patients.
“Smith said the challenges in recruiting doctors will be compounded by the changing population of doctors.
The Tampa Bay Medical Center’s medical center has more than 1,500 doctors and nurses, and the Tampa Bay area is projected to have more than 200,000 residents by 2030, according to the county’s Department of Health.
That’s a significant number and one that Smith said will be particularly challenging.
The number of residents in the Tampa area has increased by nearly 200 percent since 2000, and those new residents will have an even larger number of doctors than the current doctors.”
It’s going to be a lot more difficult,” Smith said.”
In a way, we’re looking at the same population of physicians as before, but they’re going to have a lot of different populations that have different needs, different needs.
And so, we’ve got to try to figure out how do we get the best of both worlds.
“The study, which was published in the American Journal of Medicine, also found that the majority of doctors surveyed were satisfied with their medical practice.
Nearly four in five respondents said their practice is generally well-run and that they get a good quality of care.
More than half of the respondents said they would recommend their physician to someone else.
The survey also found many physicians felt undervalued, and some had concerns about being able to do their jobs.
Only half of respondents said that they would like to be an emergency room doctor, while only a third said they were comfortable in their role.”
It’s important for doctors to know that there’s people who are willing to put in the work and get the right care.”
