Millennials Are Ditching Primary Care Doctors
Polling indicates 45 percent of Millennials fail to have a primary care provider
First they came for chain restaurants, then golf, and now millennials are turning their backs on another old institution: primary care. Younger patients are increasingly turning away from primary care doctors and toward clinics or urgent care centers, The Washington Post reports.
By the numbers: In a Kaiser Family Foundation poll, 45 percent of 18-to-29 year-olds didn't have a primary care provider. That number was significantly lower for older respondents.
