Hello and welcome to the boards. I don't know of a Dr. for your area, but I wanted to let you know that I will keep you in my prayers. I am in VA, so we are some what close to eachother. My PM does the same as the other post mentioned, he sees the pt. on their 1st visit and also for procedures. Other than that, I see his PA. At first, that bothered me, but now I love it. First, she has a lot more time to spend with me and I get in right away. While the Dr. is doing procedures, he often runs late because of unforseen issues that can come up. I have found out that if I schedule my appt. on days that the PA is there and the Dr. is there, that way the PA can always go and ask the Dr. any questions or have him step in for a few mins. at the end, to make sure your are doing alright. You get 2 for the price of 1 and you get twice as long time, than if it was just with the Dr.
It is nice to meet you here and I hope you feel free to come often with questions, concerns or helpful ideas.
