I'm currently interviewing for an adult and geriatric primary care/internal medicine position. They are saying I would see 14-18 patients per day M-F 8-5. I know a lot of family practice clinics often expect 30+ pts per day, which I think is ridiculous. I don't know what the norm is for an primary care clinic with more complex adult and geriatric patients. I currently do primary care for very complex homebound patients...I only see 6 pts per day because they are so complicated and the drive time is factored in. I never have any set breaks to eat lunch or admin time to review labs, x-rays, etc. I almost always order labs, x-rays etc on every patient because that's how sick they are. Not to mention all of social issues you run into when going to a patients house. I'm looking for other options because I'm tired of driving and I don't like how my current position is set up...if a patient cancels (and it happens a lot) I'm automatically scheduled another patient and it may not even be close to me. If I don't see 6 pts I have to make it up on another day or on the weekend. I spend A LOT of time at home charting and getting caught up. I've expressed my concerns so many times but nothing seems to change. Anyway, I'm exploring my options and trying to figure out what the norm is and what's safe for a primary care/internal medicine clinic. Thanks!
