The Physicians Foundation 2017 Patient Survey

A new patient survey of more than 1,700 U.S. adults found that 95 percent are currently satisfied with their primary care physician, but only 11 percent feel they have enough time with their physicians. That time is crucial to many consumers who have an even bigger concern—cost. Eighty nine percent are fearful that the rising cost of healthcare will adversely impact them in the future. Specifically, over half (56 percent) of patients say the cost of prescription drugs and pharmaceuticals directly contributes to rising healthcare costs.
