NP- nurse Practicioner
My hubby has been sick for 2 weeks. last time he went to the doctor, the MD was unable to identify and treat a burn. He ran unneccesary tests and prescribed the wrong and incredibly expensive medicines. so naturally this time he avoided going. he starteed getting worse and was afraid there might be something very wrong. He did not go back to ths same doctor or the same office.
he decided to go to critical care and met with a NP. She was beyond marvoulous. she listened. she made a full diagnosis, did not overprescribe drugs. she even offered OTC options. she even mentioned that his problems were not a weight issue. although caring extra lbs can harder on her immunse system it is not the main problem. She also mentioned that she lost 120lbs in s few eyars but still ahs issues with Asthma and allergies.
She was very empathetic and was more concerned with treating instead of judging.
