I suppose it's different depending on where you live. The traditional GP or
"family doctor" is someone people stay with for years. In the UK, patients
actually register with a GP, and if they move they re-register, and have all
their files transferred. You can't really overcome the fact that doctors and
patients will move, retire etc.
