Bitton and Frolkis1 discussed some of what ails primary care and offered some good solutions. I do not, however, share their optimism for the potential of the patient-centered medical home (PCMH) to act as an antidote. Why? Because many primary care physicians already act as if they are PCMHs. Ironically, it is the main reason why many of them are dissatisfied with their jobs.
