Q: How many patients should an average family physician see per day as an employee of a medical office? How much should a family physician be compensated?

A: According to data released as part of Medical Economics' most recent annual survey, family physicians averaged 112 patient visits per week in 2007, up 12 percent from the prior year. That equates to a little more than 22 patients per day in a five-day work week. (For survey information on physician productivity, go to http://www.memag.com/productivity.) FPs earned $162,500 on average in 2007, up about 5 percent from the prior year. For more information from our physicians' compensation survey, go to http://www.memag.com/earnings.
