Doctors flee Puerto Rico for US mainland

A doctor walks through a hallway at the Centro Medico trauma center in San Juan, Puerto Rico, Tuesday, April 16, 2013. A medical exodus is taking place in the Caribbean territory as doctors and nurses flee for the U.S. mainland, seeking higher salaries and better reimbursements from insurers. Many of their patients, frustrated by long waits and a scarcity of specialists, are finding they have no other choice but to follow them off the island. (AP Photo/Ricardo Arduengo)
