Idaho, as a state, can be mostly categorized as rural, making access to physicians already difficult.
“Unfortunately, patients are having to travel to receive health care,” Christensen said. “Some patients don't have the resources to be able to do that.”
Patients are experiencing longer wait times and traveling longer distances just to receive basic care because of the doctor shortage. The lack of access to doctors causes patients to live sicker and experience more complications from illnesses that could have been avoided if there were more doctors to go around.

Bosses are said to have written to Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt and Home Secretary Amber Rudd with their concerns.
Chief officer of the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership, Jon Rouse, said: "As we reach the end of a winter where the NHS has been stretched to its very limits, partly as a result of a lack of medical workforce, we find it almost impossible to understand how this decision can have been reached."
Recruit, retain, repeat: Iowa faces doctor shortage
The Gazette: Eastern Iowa Breaking News and Headlines-2018/04/26（アイオワ州）
Health care constantly evolves and shifts, in policy and practice. Iowa providers need to innovate to provide the best care. But you can't do that if you don't have enough doctors. Health care experts and policy makers have found that nationwide, and strikingly in Iowa, there are not enough primary care and specialty physicians to meet the demand for patient care. Of all 50 states, the Hawkeye State ranked 46th in 2016 for the total number of physicians active in patient care per 100,000 people, according to the Association of American Medical Colleges, the not-for-profit that represents all the medical schools in the United States.
Why finding a doctor in SC could get harder
Greenville News-2018/04/22 （サウスカロライナ州）
Despite the nation's efforts to grow the number of doctors in recent years, the projected physician shortage is now greater than even last year's estimates.
The latest prediction from the Association of American Medical Colleges is that the United States could be short more than 120,000 physicians by 2030, up from last year's estimate of 105,000.
And the deficit will be most keenly felt in the South, which already has fewer doctors than other parts of the country.
“It does seem to be worsening,” said Dr. Angela Sharkey, senior associate dean for academic affairs at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville and a professor of biomedical sciences.

According to the report, “The Complexities of Physician Supply and Demand: Projections from 2016-2030,” the shortage of physicians in primary care and medical, surgical and other specialties is projected to range from 42,600 to 121,300.
