SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) As far as family medicine is concerned, under what conditions will you usually practice? More specifically I mean...do the majority of Fop?s own there own practice or are they in a PC or do they work for a hospital. I'm assuming that most own their own practice and to me this is the only, but major, draw back. I would think owning your own practice would be allot of paper work and take the fun right out of medicine. This is the one thing preventing me from going the FP route, to me I'd rather be a doctor and leave the billing and other bologna for the administrators. So I'm certain I'm overlooking some things, and I just want clarification on what options a family doc has available to them.
