  1. As a family physician, I have been exposed to private practice, worked as an employed physician for a hospital, as well as working for the Air Force and the Veterans Administration. While I acknowledge that there are profound challenges to providing primary care access to all patients, I do not believe that it is appropriate to license NP’s to practice independently. In my eyes, this does nothing to lessen the shortage of eligible of care providers. What will resolve this problem, is appropriate compensation for the time and effort required to provide appropriate, cost effective, evidence-based, continuing, comprehensive, coordinated for all patients.
