While I agree that the “chicken little” message of doctor shortages is misguided, as demonstrated [Dec. 16] in “Sorry, docs, but Obamacare will suffer from a shortage,” Indiana patients only benefit from physician assistants practicing at the top of their license.
PAs practice medicine in every specialty across all medical and surgical settings and we’ve been doing so for nearly 50 years. Quotes in the article clearly don’t take into account the depth and rigor of the education PAs earn and maintain.
