Why Physicians Should Practice Medicine in New Jersey

Family physician Shankar Santhanam, who practices in Lawrenceville, N.J., praises the Garden State for its diversity of patients.

"You definitely get a depth and breadth of cases," Santhanam told Physicians Practice.

But there are also downsides to practicing in New Jersey, namely that payer reimbursements are "much worse" than they are in other places.

"…Rather than doing quality medicine, I find, you're doing a lot of quantity of medicine, which I don't like…," said Santhanam. "It makes it harder to take care of patients…There’s not enough integration between healthcare providers."

In this podcast, Santhanam recently shared with Physicians Practice what he likes — and what he'd change — about practicing medicine in New Jersey.
