Monday at 11pm: Ditching the family doctor

Posted: Updated:
CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

There's been an explosion in the medical community.

It is a huge spike in the number of different ways to get medical care both when it is convenient and at a cost that works for you.

CVS, Target and Walgreens are growing their numbers of in-store medical clinics across the country.  Urgent care centers are offering more services than just the traditional after-hours minor emergency care.

Where does that leave the primary care physician and what is the down side for you,  the patient, when it comes to quality care?

Consumer reporter Kristen Miranda investigates why some are ditching the family doctor.  Her story airs Monday night at 11pm but you can watch a preview on this page.
