optimistic3 Posted August 6, 2015 Share Posted August 6, 2015 So I'm looking for a PA to shadow and I considered asking my own PA who treats me with my physician. I actually have a doctor appointment tomorrow and I'm not sure if I should ask. 1. Assuming this PA even lets anybody shadow her, are they allowed to let their own patients shadow them? 2. Is that weird to ask? It's giving me anxiety even thinking about asking and possibly being rejected but she's the only PA that I know in this area. I also really DO NOT want to put her in an awkward position at all. If I were closer to her, I may not worry about asking but honestly she's never even said a word to me; she just walks in with the doctor. She's never even introduced herself..... Also she knows that I'm applying to PA school since my doctor and I have talked about it while she was in the room. Do you think she would have suggested it if she was ok with me shadowing her? Ideally I'd find someone else that I don't know but I'm having trouble finding anyone who will let me shadow. So how do you feel about shadowing your own providers? Have you done this? If this is a bad idea, please let me know. Thank you! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
