Like physicians, NPs are educated to examine, diagnose, and develop treatment plans, including prescription medications, for your acute and chronic health conditions.
NPs understand that information about your diagnosis and treatment plan, being treated with respect, and receiving personalized care are important to you. NPs demonstrate the ability to satisfy your needs for shorter wait times, longer appointments, more education, and personalized care.
NPs are less likely to perform procedures and more likely to provide patient education and/or counseling when compared with physicians and physician assistants. NP visits are generally more comprehensive, structured to afford more time for patient questions, counseling and education.
