This article investigates physicians' perceptions of how managed care has affected them, using data from a 1995 survey of Arizona physicians. Respondents report that participation in managed care has had significant and largely unpleasant effects on numerous aspects of medical practice: physician-patient relationships, clinical decision making, work conditions and settings, and overall satisfaction.
