Physicians, even specialists without gimmicks, (like procedures that are not covered by insurance) are taking home less and less each year because expenses keep going up and income from insurance companies, medicare medicaid etc are not keeping up with inflation.

Despite to cut in income, many Docs keep seeing patients becasue they love what they do.
So once the hassle factor gets to a critical level, these Docs will throw in the towel and walk away.

Obama will declare an emergency, and all of a sudden you local family doc will be replaced by a Obamacare clinic staffed by nurses.
