I think honestly the only reasonable way to go is to loosen our grip on "fast" and go the way of canadia. Sure they have plenty of PCP... but if you wanna see a specialist you better predict your hip replacement 15 years in advance and schedule then
There's a difference between demanding reliability and expecting reliability. The key difference is that Americans will go to whatever physician or NP is easiest to schedule an appointment with and who is covered by their insurance, and they will expect everything to go perfectly. When something goes wrong, then it's time to sue. A minority of the population will seek out quality and reliability on their own, but the majority of Americans will expect it anyway without any effort or extra expense on their part.
