Doctor in the House?

This article is more than 13 years old.

Boston may be a world center of health care, but you're going to have to start waiting a little longer to see a doctor. Maybe a lot longer.

A new study from the Massachusetts Medical Society says there's a worsening shortage of physicians here in primary care and six other specialties. Among the specialists in short supply are cardiologists, gastroenterologists, anesthesiologists, urologists, and neurosurgeons.

MMS President Dr. Dale Magee joins WBUR's Bob Oakes to discuss the shortage.

This program aired on July 25, 2007. The audio for this program is not available.
