  1. $60/hr In Texas for UC sucks. Sorry, but it does no matter how you slice it.
  2. ^^^'' VERY HARD. They say you can always tell the derm PA's at a conference. They are in the Ferrari......
  3. ^^^ Thanks, I actually find sleep and disorders associated with it as fascinating. Something I can not say about any other aspect of medicine anymore. Perhaps I could find a pseudo residency type job that would train me. Seems like a nice field to go into in the last part of my career. I appreciate the tip!
  4. We have little to no control in the business world of medicine. Basically zero in corporate owned Urgent Care.
  5. ^^^ I've read that jobs are drying up in this field (sleep) secondary to the new "take home" tests. Any thoughts?
  6. You read that right. What is the least stressful, least litigious aspect of medicine that our degree could actually get us a job in? Not worried about money. Thanks!
  7. You think right... I made that out of school 30 years ago.
  8. I make $72/hr with average benefits and crap PTO. This is in Texas.
  9. It's true. Texas sees us in an identical light as NP's. Anything coming their way bad will hit us.
  10. The whole thing is a clusterpuck. No way you should need to pay those buttmonkies $731 PER STATE YOU WORK IN!!!!??? But alas you must if you prescribe controlled in each state you work in. Stupid.
  11. Our front office is required to perform the requisite wallet biopsy on all patients before I see them. Welcome to Corporate Urgent Care.
  12. All these years on these boards I'm not sure I've had two down votes on any one post. I had to laugh at these though. So, for the record, I don't do FLMA forms because I do Urgent Care, not because I don't think they are valid. Just fyi LOL. Oh sooo angry you guys are....! LOL
  13. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE FORWARD THIS GUYS POST TO AAPA?????? SIMPLE, TO THE POINT AND 100% ACCURATE. WE ARE NOT PHYSICIANS AND WE ARE NOT ASSOCIATES. FFS PEOPLE PLEASE STOP SUPPORTING THAT STUPID ASS NAME THAT LITERALLY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH US....
  14. Don't do it! DOT physicals Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck! The only time I have ever had my life threatened in medicine was a DOT, and it has happened several times.
  15. Definition of Associate: "a person with limited or subordinate membership of an organization." So this is what we are in relation to Docs? Well EMEDPA at least you took a stab at answering my question. I think the definition speaks for itself though....
  16. So no one has answered my question. The Topic of this thread... How do the words "Physician" and "Associate" apply to us? Anyone? <crickets>
  17. I mean seriously.....What exactly is a "Physician Associate" and exactly HOW does that describe what we do? Please...since so many seem to be in favor of it, please do explain. Is it just the PA that tickles you? If that's it, then lets go for Physical assailant or Philosophical Astronaught..... You get my point....
  18. California PA salaries have really caught up and in most cases passed Texas. At least in Urgent Care. Then throw in the benefit package such as PTO and it's no contest income wise. Cal has a state income tax but Texas property taxes are the 4th highest in the nation and brother let me tell you from experience...they are bad, and just keep skyrocketing. Texas will be facing a "come to Jesus" moment soon on property taxes. I believe in the next few years they will have their "Prop 13" moment. If you don't know what Prop 13 in Cal was, google it. Home owners insurance here is double the price of the homes I looked at recently in Cal. Hurricanes, Tornados, hail, flooding have been devastating the TX Ins market the last 10 years. No safety net in Texas. No Medicaid expansion for lower income adults here. Texas in the #1 least insured state in the country. Dead ass last. It's a blight and shame on this state. Weather wise...well that depends on where you live in Texas. It's been raining for what seems like forever here in DFW but it goes in cycles so your mileage may vary. Cal has a sheepton of people and that bothers me. Last week they had a superbloom of flowers in Lake Elsinore (socal), and so many people tried to go look at it, the entire freeway system was shut down. It was that special kind of awful that only comes with living in the best weather in the world....everyone else wants to live there as well. Good luck!
  19. YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES!!!!!!!!!!!! AND YES!
  20. Medical Practitioner because that is exactly what we are.
