Only One Third of Physicians Satisfied with Their Income

Only about one out of three physicians are satisfied with their income and the number of hours they work, according to a survey by The Medicus Firm. The physicians blamed declining reimbursement and administrative hassles for their stagnant compensation.

The survey of more than 2,500 physicians found the most common reasons for limiting physician pay were hospital employment and electronic medical records. Physicians said they were frustrated by hospital contracts and pay structures, as well as the time spent learning and using electronic medical records, which they said slowed them down and reduced time with patients.
