re: Defeat the Nurse Practitioner scope of practice expansion - Louisiana SB 187 - G Vice
Doc, you have no idea how many times friends, neighbors, fellow parents, etc have called me after hours to go to their home and see about an ailment. Granted, these might not be your average patients. But these people call me because they know what I can do for them. Sometimes all I can do is s...

And also there was the issue of what do we do with all of these battle trained medics who came home from the Vietnam war. That played a part in the creation of PA as a profession, and that was a good thing....

Anyone else in here remember the "beat the flag burner" bill from the early 90's? This bill made it (only) a $25 fine for beating up someone who is burning the American flag in protest of something. :lol:...

I will never forget the 50 yr old woman who came to me for low back pain. She came back to me after having a good outcome from a prior ailment. She related to me a new co-morbidity of breast cancer. When I pressed her to accurately describe her LBP, she says, it feels like a bunch of little pac ...

re: Defeat the Nurse Practitioner scope of practice expansion - Louisiana SB 187 - G Vice
Let me first say that I am very much pro-Doctor. I cannot tell you how many times I have seen patients with non-specific diagnoses such as shoulder pain, back pain, etc. And these referrals mostly come from FP, internal Med, or an OB/Gyn acting as a primary. It's 100% up to me to figure out...

re: Defeat the Nurse Practitioner scope of practice expansion - Louisiana SB 187 - G Vice
The work up for osteosarcoma won't likely occur on the first MD visit. They will get a script to to go PT for knee pain/sprain. When the patient fails to make progress in the first week or so, and they complain of pain at night and there is not a clear mechanism of injury, they get sent back to th...

Glad to see you are progressing well :cheers: But I'm like you......I wonder what kind of patient I'm going to be, knowing what I know. Unless I'm retaining urine, I will resist getting a Foley catheter with every fiber of what's left of me. You walking independently, or with cane/walker?...

There's bad behavior in all professions. I have a high opinion of NPs, but that story was true. Not naming names, and I'm sure that story could be found on the web. Just like disciplinary actions against MDs and other professionals can be found....

re: Defeat the Nurse Practitioner scope of practice expansion - Louisiana SB 187 - G Vice
True story: a NP opened up a clinic in Youngsville a few years ago and got into major trouble for going way outside NP scope of practice and that persons particular training, also involving prescription pain medication impropriety. Can't recall if there was MD oversight or not, but this clinic wa...

re: BGE Owners: How long have you had yours - G Vice
Had mine 3 yrs. Good as new, but I never keep it exposed to the elements. It's always under good patio coverage. Would be curious to see how the BGE would withstand the weather otherwise. I think this unit is the type of thing that will last for decades, perhaps a lifetime, with very minimal...

Great reviews and pics, as always! And it's such a frustrating teaser because I was in Nola too this weekend (for education) and had no time hit restaurants like these that have been on my list for a long time, with the exception of the Cellar Door which is cool cocktail bar. Happy Anniversary...
