Perfect Timing: Care You Need When You Need It
Like many medical practices, our office leverages the specialized skills of nurse practitioners and physicians assistants. These medical professionals are often more readily available for appointments than our staff physician, which means we can offer our patients more immediate access to reliable medical guidance and consultation.
Our physician assistants and nurse practitioners are especially valuable members of the patient care team. They have invested many years in additional medical training and are fully capable of offering in-depth medical advice. A recent national survey showed that 60% of patients would prefer to see a nurse practitioner or physician assistant rather than wait to see a physician.
The survey results validate what medical experts are saying—nurse practitioners and physician assistants can provide valuable and timely medical care when people need it. When dealing with symptoms arising from chronic illness, getting an appointment with one of our nurse practitioners or physician assistants is the best solution for many patients.
