Over a 3-day period, MD Analytics surveyed 1000 Canadians that are responsible for making health-related decisions. It was found that respondents are often choosing to not to see a physician when health-related scenarios arise, citing self-diagnosis or lack of convenience as their key reasons. Respondents are also strongly likely to visit a walk-in clinic instead of their family physician, with convenience again mentioned as the key reason. Findings also suggest that 1 in 8 Canadians do not have a Family Physician.
