Don't Believe the Smear Campaigns

Hey folks and Happy New Year! I was informed that one of the other medical card companies has a smear campaign directed at me. I'm flattered! They claim that PA's don't provide the same quality of care that a doctor does and that I am trying to hide the fact that you're not getting your certificate from a doctor. Such silliness! Well, just so we're clear, I'm announcing to the world that I'm proud to say I'm a PA and I own and operate my own company. Shocking, right? But, seriously, I put a lot of work into making sure I keep you guys safe and informed. If you need brain surgery, PLEASE, go to a doctor. But, for medical cards, I got you!

NP's learn the nursing model and PA's learn the medical model (same as doctors). Ultimately we end up doing the same things, so it's easy to confuse the two. To avoid that mess, many companies who employ…

Oh my goodness!!! The silliness, if they really want to find out about the wonderful care we receive they can give me a call.
