I'm sure that's a great comfort for people who can't find a family doctor, or who are on lengthy waiting lists to see specialists or have tests.

Th number of physicians is slightly higher than the national number per 100,000 persons but this does not account for the fact that the population in NL is, on average, older than the Canadian population. Older people require significantly more physician labour-hours than young people. This was reflected in the lower rates paid some years ago in Ontario for patients enrolled with Family Health Network physicians. (not sure of current rate structure).

I hate to be a wet blanket, but we cannot forget about the ridiculous wait times that NL'er have to endure to see specialists or to get specialized medical testing. Hooray for more physicians but let's get to work on those wait times!!!

Really, where are they? How come I can't see a Dr in Stephenville, other than going to the ER.
