The decades-old ‘looming’ primary-care shortage


She writes:

“Our constant inability to address this shortage is also immutable, and it has been so for all the decades we could have used to train more primary care doctors.

“Whether by design or by happenstance, we are now working hard to reduce demand, and perceived need, for actual doctors in primary care, and at the same time, we are working equally hard, if not harder, to increase the soothing volume of cheap and inconsequential services which are considered part of primary care.”

Along the way, she also returns to the old, half-joking, half-serious comparison of primary care and Jiffy Lube.
