No. of Recommendations: 1
My doctor retired - I wanted to get a physical - Called my wife, son & daughter's doctor - "can I schedule an appointment?" Doctor's office "No. We don't take medicare patients."

In 2008, I brought my 93 yr old uncle down to my home in New Mexico. Its a town of 100k. From various sources I narrowed the recommended primary care doctors down to 6. The shortest wait period that I could get for a new patient was 4 months. Even before Obamacare doctors ain't too interested in picking up new medicare patients in my burg.
