To the Editor: Dr Graham and colleagues1 provided an overview of the current status of family
practice in the United States. As a family practitioner who practiced 41 years
in the same small town in Washington State from right after World War II until
1989, I was very surprised that Graham et al do not discuss the role of obstetrics
in family practice.
