    My primary care physician never rushes my visits. She will take time every visit to review all my health history and talk about what is happening with my family, etc. I once commented on the time she seems to be able to take and she commented that as long as the Medicare and Medicaid load on the practice is low, she can take as much time as necessary. If she and her partner were to accept Medicare patients, then they would need to resort to shotgun doctoring to stay in business. Right now, they do no Medicaid and only accept Medicare patients who have "graduated" from being regular billing patients.
