The Medical Group Management Association tracked 30,835 providers, mostly physicians, and 1,609 specialty groups to gauge how their salaries grew between 1994 and 1998. Despite a dip in 1997 — and the spread of managed care — specialists' salaries increased a bit faster than primary care physicians' salaries over that span.
