Primary care physicians enjoyed a 4 percent increase in compensation in 2006, less than the aggregate of medical and surgical specialties, which had a 6 percent increase, according to the American Medical Group Association. But if you look at the graph below, you'll see that over the three years ending in 2006, primary care specialties showed respectable gains — on a percentage basis, better than all specialties except psychiatry, pulmonology, dermatology, general surgery, and orthopedic surgery.
