When It's Okay to see a PA

Great article in support of PAs and NPs- also addressing when to see a doc and when to see a PA or NP. Great practical info for inquiring patients.

Let’s say you hurt your knee doing your best Tom Brady impression playing flag football.

It hurts like the dickens and you’re not sure if you tore something or just have a really bad case of tendonitis. You go to your local urgent care clinic, or doctor’s office, and you’re seen by a physician assistant  (PA), who examines you, says everything is structurally intact, and you should use ice, elevate your leg and take some ibuprofen for the pain.

What the PA said makes sense, but shouldn’t you see — you know — the doctor?
