National Survey of Physicians Part III: Doctors on Their Profession
As part of the Kaiser Family Foundation’s biennial National Survey of Physicians, the Foundation examined doctors views of their profession. The survey found that most physicians say the overall morale of physicians has decreased in the last five years. The majority of doctors say that managed care has negatively affected the way they practice medicine and doctors are more likely now than they were in 1999 to view managed care negatively. Doctors do believe managed care has had a positive effect on the use of practice guidelines and preventive care.
