The Primary Care Doctors industry is an integral component of United States healthcare. However, the recession forced many consumers to cut back on doctor visits and restricted health insurance access to an increasing number of unemployed individuals. However, the main factor contributing to fewer visits was a decrease in the number of people with private health insurance, especially in 2009. Nevertheless, the industry is projected to benefit from the healthcare reform laws of 2010 and revenue will increase in the five years to 2019. As more individuals gain health insurance due to the reform, demand for primary care services will increase, growing industry revenue in turn.
This industry comprises general practitioners that possess a Doctor of Medicine (MD) or Doctor of Osteopathy (DO) degree. These doctors primarily work using a broad understanding of all illnesses and do not restrict their practice to one particular field of medicine. Doctors in this industry are trained for comprehensive first-contact and continued care for individuals with any undiagnosed health concern.
