Map Shows Primary Care and Specialist Physicians by County

The California Health Care Foundation has developed interactive maps displaying the number of primary care physicians and specialists practicing at least 20 hours per week in counties across California. Based on licensure data from the Medical Board of California as well population information from the U.S. Census Bureau, the maps indicate that San Benito County had the fewest primary care physicians per 100,000 population in 2015, while Napa County had the most. San Francisco and Napa counties recorded the highest concentration of specialists, while Sierra County had none.
