There is not a physician shortage in the US



"The physician shortage as a significant driver of poor health outcomes is a red herring."

                                                                  -Corso et al

If anything, the poor state of affairs in American health has to do with too many doctors, not too few. Authors Corso, Dorrance, and LeRochelle make a good argument that simply blaming poor healthcare on the lack of primary care is insufficient (see their article in Military Medicine).
