When is it time to change care to a Gerontologist?

My daughter is a Nurse Practitioner and, like many PAs and ARNPs, they treat the person more holistically. My daughter works for herself and treats residents in the Assisted Living Facilities. She is essentially my doctor and I am lucky to have her next door.
My favorite providers in the past have been Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants. You’ll get more time and interest and patience from a PA and ARNP. Doctors are focused on diagnostic and specific treatments. ARNPs and PAs spend more time on assessment, prevention and wellness based treatments. I like to say Physicians are like Joe Friday of “Just the facts Ma’am”
fame.

In reply to @imallears …. I have been on the roller coaster of general practitioners and I lost another one. I just accepted a nurse practitioner in internal medicine this time and your comments sound very hopeful. Thx so much💕
