BLOOMINGTON -- A doctor is worried the Affordable Care Act (ACA) will result in more physicians retiring early. Dr. John Wieland just returned from a conference. More than 50,000 surgeons were there to discuss ACA.

He says, now, doctors have to log all records electronically which will take more time and they'll be doing more for less. Many of his colleagues say it's not worth the hassle, so they're considering retiring.

Experts say there's a huge demand for students entering medical school. Timing should work out perfectly. The healthcare system overhaul should be complete and running smoothly by the time they graduate.
