About This Statistic
This statistic depicts the predicted change in general physicians in the United States and the adult patient population from 2010 to 2025. In 2015, total generalists are expected to increase by 13 percent in the country while the volume of adult patients is expected to increase for 15 percent. The urgent care market is projected to grow as it is often a lower cost option, and provides high quality and cost-effective medical care. However, rising costs, aging population, increased population with insurance will all create challenges in this market.
