I'm of 2 minds about nurse practitioners, and the big push to let them diagnose and prescribe. I'm in favor of it, but I fear it's being done partly to cope with the fact that people are going find it harder to spend time with actual physicians, due to the health care law changes.
It may seem a bit unfair,
and to many will come as a shock,
but coverage is not care:
Expect to see less of your doc.
