  •  I'm a huge fan of nurse practitioners. (6+ / 0-)

    I have not seen a regular gyn dr in years, but have been well and truly taken care of by caring, smart, nps.  It makes perfect sense to me that the day to day mundane care that many people need can be provided by nurse practitioners and physician's assistants, and hopefully slightly lower the cost of healthcare in the future.

    My f-i-l tried to question the credentials of a NP who worked for his oncologist.  She cheerfully took it, explained and did her job.  Three years later, he respects her as much if not more than the oncologist who is himself a wonderful doctor.

    It will take creative solutions.  A "village" of healthcare providers, if you will.

    Was a cold and dark December when the banks became cathedrals...
