Thank you for all of your thoughtful reflections; please feel welcome to continue responding to previous questions.

Team-based care has been proposed as one way to increase efficiency in primary care. While there are numerous potential advantages to this model of care, I have often wondered how the therapeutic relationship is affected when a patient who previously would have seen one clinician for all of his or her primary care needs now interacts with several providers. In your experience, how does the team-based model affect the quality of the relationships you have with your patients and the care that you are able to provide?
