The issue of longer wait times as a result of lack of access to primary care is gaining more publicity. This week ABC News reported on wide spread ER wait times issues due to lack of primary care. Despite the profound differences in US and Canadian models both are suffering from the same problems. Until PCP fees are normalized I don't think we'll see an end to the problem.
