Definition of Physician discontent

Physician discontent: Dissatisfaction with medical practice. Physician discontent increased substantially in the last quarter of the 20th century. The sources of dissatisfaction included pressures from managed-care systems, the malpractice crisis, aggravation with bureaucratic red tape, and constant time pressures. Nevertheless, most physicians still took satisfaction in their work.
