A doctor shortage is threatening to make the roll-out of the Affordable Care Act even more difficult and it could create lines for care and services.
New Yorkers are notorious for wanting things immediately, and that includes medical care.
But even doctors who support Obamacare say there could be delays due to more patients and fewer doctors, CBS 2s Dick Brennan reported Monday.

Between the diversity medical school grants (and several medical schools cutting a medical degree to 3 yrs) and increased work visas from 3rd world countries, they will come up with new Docs.
It happens every day.
Buy something from Cabella’s - They list the tax separately, others may not, but it is in the law.
Snopes is never right.
There was a story posted here within the last month or so about the NHS in England having a problem in that a lot of their female doctors only want to work part-time, so effectively they have to push two students through med school in order to have one full-time-equivalent doctor.
In veterinary medicine, the majority of students have been female for several decades, and few of them want to go through the trouble of establishing a clinic; most of them just want to work part-time for an established clinic, run (normally) by a guy.
they will let nurses do things onlydocs now do.
will result in more iatrogenic deaths.
more cost savings for obama.
the prices once learned on the website
hospitals not accepting ObieCare
Doctors retiring because of Obiecare
his party begging for a way the-hell-out-of-this debacle
never mentioned but HUGE; web security
being run out of office
Other than that, all's good.
Did you know that the Obamacare medical device tax applies to fishing tackle and ammunition?
I am all for a tax on rap or hip hop music. Extra $50 per album sounds about right
Anyone going into medicine needs their head examined. All docs should rise up to save their profession before they become slaves to socialism. To think the idiots in the American Medical Assoc and the American Psychological Assn actively pushed for and participated in creating this obamanation.
Rooster bones...and that’s Santeria, not Congolese medicine.
In the Congo, they’ll offer you long pork stew.
/That’s people stew, for the low-information types out there.
I’m sure that if they just chain the Surgeons to the operating tables it will work.
Mr Paladin....nurse will see you now.
My boss is a flaming liberal retard PHD from socialist UW-Madistan, and he has 3 adult boys (all in their 20’s) who also went to UW-Madistan and will vote hands down for any demoRAT union politician or socialist or leftist ideology. However his oldest son, age 28 is now going to Med school, and I will be very interested to see his reaction now to 0dumb0 & the Atrocity Care Act. I can’t wait to get 1-on-1 with him, and just grill him about his hero, 0dumb0, and how 0dumb0 is destroying not only our health care system, but also is destroying the middle class as well. If he is still for 0dumb0 after all this, then I hope he chokes on the shear volume of paperwork & compliance with 0dumb0Care.
That said, I would love to hear the outcome of your conversations.
It will be interesting I’m sure!
