Nurse Practitioners are actually better than most doctors. In fact, I personally have had better sucess with FEMALE doctors than the guy doctors.
My Primary Dr is female, and like bubba.50s wife said, more understanding, caring and compassionate, as is the Specialist(yes, another female Dr) helping me dump this Superbug. (Sorry, sort of paraphrased there)
Anyway, I dont feel like little more than his next Mercedes payment when I see the female Drs, and they do better!!!!
