American physicians have had enough

American physicians have had enough: "1) In this age of “accountability,” loss of autonomy – the freedom to treat patients according to their best clinical judgment – galls physicians because autonomy defines them\r role as medical doctors. 2) American physicians have had enough, which is why a broad and growing physician shortage exists, why ambitious and bright young people are choosing fields other than medicine, medical students aren’t choosing primary care residences, physicians are demoralized. A survey by the College of Physician Executives indicates lost autonomy, low reimbursements, bureaucratic red tape, patient overload, loss of respect, and an adverse malpractice climate discourages more than 60% of American physicians. The reality is that American physicians have had enough."
