  1. I know a lot about Covid and the statistics do no lie. The majority of deaths are in very unhealthy and >65 yr olds. There have been numerous doctors saying 10 different things, look at the front line doctors, they get black listed and people call them crazy etc. Just as I am doing here, if I do not go with the main stream medical world you all are loosing your minds. How about being healthy? NOT being diabetic (type 2) or overweight or smoke/drink, etc. How about running, eating clean organic food, meditate, de-stress, take vitamins, etc. There's much more to this than what you are all say
  2. Our 2 hour lecture on vaccines was a pediatrician telling us the vaccine schedule....never studies mRNA vaccines in PA school. We studied mRNA and genetics. Not sure where you went to school that studied these newer types of vaccines...???
  3. Sounds like getting Covid would have been easier and less painful for you? How do you know you are not contagious with the virus? This is something that scares me about these mRNA vaccines. Not enough research, but I guess we all have to start somewhere! I hope you are feeling better!
  4. You can set expectations all you want with patients but when they own you they own you. It is called Concierge Primary Care for a reason. I have recently spoken with a few physicians that use to own and/or work for a Concierge practice and they said it was a nightmare. Just a N = 3, but have read others say the same thing.
  5. Not a fan of DPC (concierge). They own you as they already paid you so you are at their beckon call 24/7. Lots of various reasons above that add to my point.
  6. but if we educate on why we are a better trained and legally safer (IMO) clinician then that would get gears running. I do not have any evidence on legal issues and lawsuits between NPs and PAs, I am strictly speaking of training. That also looks bad on PAs as we think we are better, blah blah blah. So basically we need a name change and a very strong support from AAPA and NCCPA to advance this profession.
  7. Thank you for the information. Nice read. I agree there are different opinions and my only question is if these lock downs we had this year already have not stopped the curve of this then why would another one help?
  8. I agree with the 95% number and that is truly what I am seeing, but again that is just me walking around the mall or store. I am not there at different times, I could miss someone not wearing a mask, etc. There was a chart out there (which I cannot find) that showed different periods of lock downs and the spike of covid after we got done with a month long lock down. Not sure if that is the way to go. I am of the thought about not trying to kill this "bug" but have a healthy immune system to be able to fight it. Now that will take several years to achieve and getting people to reverse their DMI
  9. The CDC director says wearing mask could reduce the spread of Covid in 4-8 weeks. So in cities with mandatory masking why is the spread increasing? I have seen this in several major cities in my state? I have went through these areas and rarely see anyone not wearing a mask. So what is the point of the vaccine if you get it then you still have to wear a mask? I have had this argument for over a decade now. That if one is vaccinated against a certain illness that does not mean you cannot spread it. Now you all are saying that you can still spread it. So we wear a mask until everyone gets
  10. Truthfulness is rude? Helping you about is rude? Because you might not like what I saw but this is the best path to succeed as a PA. I have seen several PAs that didnt have prior high level HCE and they struggled for a year or more to get their feet wet and a new PA. I am not changing my tune to make you feel better. Most experienced PAs will agree with my statement. If you think this comment was rude then you probably wont make it as a PA. Good luck.
  11. I think he was making a comment about this as it does prove that masking and social distancing works (to a point) but also if we never get around other we won't have a healthy, robust immune system cause it never gets "used." There is a healthy balance of the two (being exposed to viruses etc and protecting us from deadly viruses as a whole). For Covid most people < 70 will be fine compared to most other viruses. I agree with NOT hurting out economy, children's schooling, socializing, mental health etc, but we must maintain open and we can do that in a smart safe manner.
  12. Hopefully the flu deaths remain low. I am not sure if providers are doing flu and covid swabbing. I know at our clinics most providers do a covid swab and not a flu as most people do not want to swabs up their nose.
  13. Can I get some opinions on Athena EHR and what you like and dislike. I might be switching to this soon. How does coding/billing work etc? I heard they take a % and they bill for you etc?
