Primary Care Doctors Burning Out

Some very concerning findings in a new study by the Mayo clinic.

When looking at general internists and family physicians the study found “more than half of the doctors in each of those areas suffered some form of burnout.” ¬†Another specialty, ER medicine, was even worse.

In my opinion this is very concerning, especially in light of the ever greater responsibility being placed on our “front line” doctors.

As a Mayo clinic physician Tait Shanafelt¬†put it,¬†Docs who are burned out are more likely to make mistakes.”

One bright spot, physicians who practice preventative medicine reported the lowest levels of burnout.

Add this to the list of good reasons to consider Cornerstone Private Practice, where a big part of our focus is on prevention and proactive care!
