And many nurses as well, they don't want to fall in line and do as they are told by doc obama and nurse pelosi, who said we would have to pass it to see what is in it.. Which translates to who cares about the docs and nurses, and now.. I expect a few years down the road we will be getting docs from foreign lands to work for cheap, I am sure it will fit obama's standards. In the meantime change will be coming to the medical community, and for those they cared so well for... Why would anyone become a doc and have 300,000 dollars in student debt, thanks Obama you have now ruined the medical field, and the greatest healthcare in the world, but your supporters still luv ya, what's next on your agenda to destroy America..????????

Report: 83% of American Doctors Have Considered Quitting Over Obamacare

Eighty-three percent of American physicians have considered leaving their practices over President Barack Obama’s health care reform law, according to a survey released by the Doctor Patient Medical Association.

The DPMA, a non-partisan association of doctors and patients, surveyed a random selection of 699 doctors nationwide. The survey found that the majority have thought about bailing out of their careers over the legislation, which was upheld last month by the Supreme Court.

Even if doctors do not quit their jobs over the ruling, America will face a shortage of at least 90,000 doctors by 2020. The new health care law increases demand for physicians by expanding insurance coverage. This change will exacerbate the current shortage as more Americans live past 65.

By 2025 the shortage will balloon to over 130,000, Len Marquez, the director of government relations at the American Association of Medical Colleges, told The Daily Caller.

“One of our primary concerns is that you’ve got an aging physician workforce and you have these new beneficiaries — these newly insured people — coming through the system,” he said.“There will be strains and there will be physician shortages.”

The DPMA found that many doctors do not believe the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will lead to better access to medical care for the majority of Americans, co-founder of the DPMA Kathryn Serkes told TheDC.

“Doctors clearly understand what Washington does not — that a piece of paper that says you are ‘covered’ by insurance or ‘enrolled’ in Medicare or Medicaid does not translate to actual medical care when doctors can’t afford to see patients at the lowball payments, and patients have to jump through government and insurance company bureaucratic hoops,” she said.(SEE ALSO: Jeremiah Wright:‘White racist alien DNA’ running through synapses of Obama’s brain )

The American Medical Association, which endorsed Obama’s health care overhaul, was not able to immediately offer comment on the survey. Spokesperson Heather Lasher Todd said it would take time to review the information in the survey.

Janelle Davis of the American Academy of Family Physicians said the AAFP could not provide thoughtful commentary without studying the survey’s findings and methodology.

More insured patients means a bigger customer base for their practice. Most private drs. won't take people without insurance because they will never get paid.

Please read some of the comments on the daily caller site after the article, docs now leaving their professions. How could this happen to our country, for shame on obama and lib senate for passing this crapcare. We will remember come November, show your support for our Doctors and Nurses, and vote Obama and the Senate out, for repeal of obamacare.

If you pay attention most of the doctors are not from the United States. Esp if you have to see any sort of specialist. This country is so screwed. But it's only gonna get worse cause the ignoramus fools who voted for osama the first time will do it again. Along with all the other dead beats living off the government. By the time they realize there is a price to pay it will be too late. And the sad part is we ALL have to pay not just the idiots. Of course they get money for nothing every month so they don't care. Long as the handouts keep coming they are happy. I say you either work or if your family don't want to take care of you then you need to be killed. Either pull your weight or be 6 ft under! Your choice!

HorsePucky....If that is true I will put my application this afternoon! OH, on second thought maybe I will not because..........

The path to being a doctor typically takes a minimum of 12 years AFTER high school, specialties with extensive training periods can take five or more years. Non-surgical specialties can often be completed in less time. A family practice or internal medicine physician completes four years of medical school followed by 3 years of residency.

Liberals destroyed America. Time for conservatives to form their own country, and ban liberals from having any rights in the new country.

America would rocket to hell without conservatives paying taxes to support liberal's retarded beliefs.

You're wrong there. you war mongers would back stab and kill each other before the ink dried on your new Constitution. On that note, sure you guys should all leave America and start a new country.
