Exclusive Survey: Is your practice fulfilling?


We asked doctors whether the complexities of modern practice life were undermining their effectiveness and their satisfaction.

"I just want to practice good medicine," many physicians complain, but in today's practice environment, that may be the hardest thing of all to do.

Perhaps predictably, older, more experienced doctors, irrespective of specialty, gave themselves higher effectiveness scores than did their younger, less experienced colleagues. Those in the 40-and-over category, for instance, were almost twice as likely as younger doctors to assign themselves the highest grade (21 vs 11 percent). The same pattern holds true for doctors with 11 or more years in practice, 22 percent of whom gave themselves an A+ for effectiveness compared to 13 percent for their less experienced colleagues.
