Umm... not really - it depends on what you're comparing it to! "Very low" compared to what? Compared to most Americans, PCP's make a lot of money. Compared to cardiologists and dermatologists, PCP's make much less... for now. This may change quite a bit with health care reform.

There will be no health care reform my dear. Yesterday, a federal judge rejected it because it's unconstitutional.
A primary care physician gets 20% of what a surgical counter part get! this is what I mean by very low salary.
We are not comparing to the general public, we are comparing among specialties, because I assume all of us are doctors here in this website.
