How to Get The Most from Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants

Must You See A Doctor?


The next time you call your doctor’s office for an appointment, you might be asked if you’d mind seeing a nurse practitioner or a physician’s assistant instead of your regular physician.

Increasingly, doctors are in short supply. As President Obama’s law extends healthcare to 30 million Americans who haven’t had access before, experts are saying that there won’t be enough doctors to treat everyone. The Association of American Medical Colleges has predicted that the U.S. will face a shortage of more than 90,000 physicians by 2020.

To fill the gap, many medical practices – internists and specialists alike – are already turning to physician assistants (PAs) and nurse practitioners (NPs) to provide assessment, monitoring and treatment.
