Primary care doctors plan to scale back or quit by 2014

As I read posts on Sermo related to health care reform and Obamacare, I realize that we're seeing more evidence that physicians (particularly primary care physicians) are planning on scaling back or quitting by 2014.

2014 is the magic date where the health care reform laws will get fully implemented. People will have insurance, but they may face tremendous difficulty finding doctors if doctors are getting ready to scale back or retire early. Primary care physicians are anticipating a significant salary decrease in 2014. Will that really happen? Or, will most of them transition out of clinical medicine before they stick around to find out?
