209000 in the US
It is important to know that in 2010, there were approximately 209,000 practicing primary care physicians in the U.S. Not too many people know that there are 624,434 physicians in the United States who spend the majority of their time in direct patient. Needless to say, slightly less than one-third are specialists in primary care. Keep in mind that the most recent research has been commissioned by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
