wonk Posted September 21, 2012 Share Posted September 21, 2012 Hi guys, Just started my first gig in Internal Med in an expanding practice that never had a PA before. The physician and support staff know what a PA does as a mid-level provider but some patients are having trouble grasping the concept. I've had over 10 patients refuse to see an "assistant to the physician for treatment" today and it was a little frustrating. The MA's rooming the patients ask if they would see me or not - then I get turned down and I don't even get the chance to tell them what I can do for them. How has your practice educated patients about utilizing a PA? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
