Growing Need for Primary Care Doctors in the United States

Dr. Christian-Taylor helps patients take charge of their family health.

Millions of Americans are expected to obtain health insurance by 2014 through the federal health law. Some stats, like California are facing what may be a doctor shortage that could squeeze primary care access in the Bay Area,  as the law extends coverage to an additional 30 million Americans and places a greater strain on the physician workforce, especially for primary care.

Luckily for residents in Hampton Roads, the Bon Secours Medical Group has dozens of primary care physicians available to meet same-day appointments and holding extended hours to help meet the growing primary care needs of the area. Our family physicians are experts with years of training a wide range of specialties, including family medicine, internal medicine, sports medicine, ob/gyn, nutrition, and osteopathy.
