    You ought to reach out to "Gay Mid-Level Providers" and not just PA's. You'll probably get more responses.

    Ooo, if you were my physician I'm sure I'd be in for a check up way more often.

    I am not, but do want to thank-you guys. You sometimes do a better job of informing the patient, medical concerns, etc. than the primary physician, in many occasions I wish the PA would be the doctor than rather the primary physician when I have had to interacts with PAs- just wanted to say thanks.

    Is it b/c you think the people who become PA's are better communicators or you are just refering to those specific instances?

    just curious...thanks!

    I love my PA at my Doctors office. I had a problem with my leg swelling and the Doctor sent me home with a prescription for antibiotics. 2 days later my leg was huge and it had spread to my ankle. I made an appointment with the PA and as soon as he saw me, I was sent immediately to the hospital and spent 3 days hooked up to IV's. The Doctor at the hospital said if I had not come in then, I may have died. When I go for my weekly check on my leg, I get an appointment with the PA. He is great and pretty hot looking too.
