Physician Burnout Taking Its Toll on Doctors Nationwide
As a result of physician burnout, a growing number of doctors report less job satisfaction. According to a recent survey of U.S. primary care doctors conducted by MDVIP and Ipsos, more than half of doctors surveyed said they’ve seriously considered changing their work situations due to professional stress, and 40 percent have even contemplated quitting medicine. Eighty-three percent say their jobs’ demands impact their ability to spend time with their patients as well as their personal lives. As a result, some physicians are turning to concierge practices like MDVIP to reduce the number of patients they see and the subsequent time constraints.
