More than half of doctors licensed in the nation's capital are primary care physicians who spend more than 20 hours a week caring for patients, according to a survey released Wednesday by the D.C. Board of Medicine. According to the survey, conducted last year when doctors renewed their licenses, nearly one-third of active family doctors were from the District of Columbia, up from about half a percent in 2012. To conduct the surveys, the Medical Association sent voluntary questionnaires to 8,466 doctors who renewed their questionnaires last year.
The poll also found that more than half of physicians surveyed believe the health care law will have a positive impact on county health care. Nearly half said the main reason was that implementing the law would improve access to health care.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 244 people died of an opioid overdose in the US in 2014, meaning there were 34.7 deaths per 100,000 people. This alarming statistic does not stop doctors writing prescriptions for opioids. Medical providers in DC have written more than 1.5 million opioid prescriptions a year, according to the CDC.
Generally, the District and neighboring Maryland probably have more doctors per capita than anywhere else in the nation, but health experts say that is extremely low compared to other parts of the country, such as New York City, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Many of the District's uninsured live in wards 4 to 7, where there are fewer doctors. Grover says the uninsured residents of these stations have not yet signed up for new health insurance, so they won't have access until they get an insurance card.
We offer a network of licensed DC providers who meet patients via an app and prescribe FDA-approved drugs from local pharmacies. Call 202-741-3000 to make an appointment with a Washington DC Health Care Provider (DCHCP). If pre-authorisation is required for a medicine prescribed by another provider, the application will be processed and a staff member will call you when it is completed.
We also provide educational materials and have a long history of providing education and support to our patients and other healthcare providers in the DC area. We are also a member of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and the National Academy of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.

As in previous board reports, the latest survey found that active family doctors are in the Washington D.C. area, with the largest number of physicians in Washington DC and the second largest concentration of primary care physicians. In fact, according to a recent American Medical Association survey, more than 80 percent of active-duty physicians referred their patients to a D.C. practice.
Orlowski said the latest survey is more accurate because it covers doctors who spend more than 20 hours caring for patients. Wednesday's figures are higher than the number of GPs actively practising, which the body reported in its first annual survey of active GPs in 2010. The District has the fewest uninsured residents, but an estimated 42,000 people in D.C. and the District of Columbia are uninsured, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
