    Yeah, but as previously established good doctors can only exist in private practices. So think about how good those doctors could have been if only they had to work in private practice.

    According to the article, their not leaving medicine. They're just going to be doctors in a different setting.
    Despite the OP, we're not actually losing doctors according to this article.
    I may be wrong.

    If the doctor chooses to do something else, that's his business and it's tough **** for you. If we're worried about the number of doctors leaving the practice, we should build more medical schools. That is the biggest bottleneck in our health care system right now. We have an artificial shortage of doctors, thanks to the AMA monopoly on labor.
    I disagree. The problem is not fewer medical school students due to not enough medical schools... it's that more and more graduating medical students are going into specialties and not into a primary care practice.

    The article doesn't make apoint about docs being forced out due to costs. It says that they are lured away.

    Physicians tell the survey that they are increasingly attracted to the benefits offered by hospital-based employment opportunities, which include: relief from administrative responsibilities; greater access to leading healthcare information technology tools, facilities and equipment; and a more manageable work week and stability.

    Maybe you meant to link to some other article that is accordance with your OP?
    I may be wrong.

    It still does not follow based on the article.

    "...relief from administrative responsibilities; greater access to leading healthcare information technology tools, facilities and equipment; and a more manageable work week and stability."

    Sounds more like the doctors are attracted to less stress, less cost and the benefit of cutting through the paperwork that they have to do.

    Perhaps you should find an article that actually fits your premise? This one definitely doesn't.

    Not me. I don't have a driver's license, so I don't have to buy car insurance. If I choose to never get a driver's license, I will never need insurance.

    The only way to not need health insurance is to stop living. Health insurance mandates are not comparable to auto insurance.

    So then how do we fix this? Medical specialties are more lucrative than primary practice and general care.
