There are alot of interns coming into clinics and hospitals now . So when you get a new dr always ask if he or she is a intern . if they are then they will be moving on . So find someone else

Mel, some employers will offer to pay off a school loan as an incentive if a dr just starting out agrees to come and practice at a place for a certain time length. When my Mom lived in Kansas this was a very common thing there. Most of them had a minimum of 2 years that they stayed in Kansas. It was awful cause these drs did not worry about connecting with their patients and the standard of care was the pits. They missed her lung cancer on a chest x-ray taken one year earlier. This happens more in small towns than the larger cities. Hugs, Susie
