Roadblock to Health Care

A startling one in five people in Collier County of Naples, FL are without a primary care physician. Even with 250 primary care physicians in the area, a simple appointment for routine check-ups or treatment can be hard to come by for citizens in the area. The statistic is mirrored across the nation as millions of people, even those with insurance, having difficulty accessing a primary care doctor. This leaves people with no option other than to seek treatment in emergency rooms and critical care centers. There is little sense in reforming our health care system by focusing on getting health insurance for everyone if that insurance does not allow people access to care. What is causing the drastic deficiency in primary care physicians in Florida and nationwide?
