Dr. Frank Hesse of Albuquerque is a retired general surgeon, the former chairman of the state Health Policy Commission and one of the founders of a nonprofit organization that recruits health care providers to New Mexico.

And he’s had trouble finding a primary care physician.

“An awful lot of people are looking for doctors and people are calling me,” Hesse said recently. “I’m in the same boat, and I’m a physician.”
