Sorry to hear the CEO of Mercy, Eric Ammons, is leaving. Mercy isn't the Mayo Clinic, but it was definitely improving. I hope we get a good replacement.

Excuse me? Some of the best "doctors" of my life have been nurse practioners and physician's assistants. They are more attentive to more aspects of my overall wellness than MDs, who rely on their computer screens and have an eye on the next appointment 10 minutes away. At the same time, my (current) PA absolutely refers me elsewhere when her knowledge/experience/certifica tion are exceeded by my test results and questions. Do not belittle this MPG staff member.

Yes, some of the best medical people I have ever went to are ARPN's. Also, Naturopathic (N.D.) are good as well. They have to obtain a medical degree in order to practice plus know naturopathic medicine.

Welcome to the new world of Obamacare...It will be harder to keep a trained physician in a small town in the future because they will mostly be practicing in larger cities because of the costs involved in establishing and maintaining a practice and the low reimbursements provided by insurance companies and Medicare. This leaves NPs and PAs to handle most of the patient load...not that their is a lot wrong with that as long as they will refer anything unusual to the MD. My NP is very good and easy to get along with...takes the time to do the exam right and doesn't seem to be hurried by an office schedule.

The service model we see today was in the works long before Obama. It is all about the money and the insurance companies making more money. PS: those naturopathic doctors, ain't no more a doctor than my cat. That is one of the biggest frauds around. They don't have medical degrees like a standard MD as we know it..they flim flammed through some BS school that puts Medical in the name. bogus to the max.

So glad to hear the ceo is leaving. Maybe the new one will actually care about the well beinging of human life and someone that can speak english! This hospital is a joke...if your bleeding to death they will say you are just fine. Any other hospital would actually care. But not mercy.....funny name beacuse mercy shows NO mercy for their patients...the only thing they show is death and sickness.(And I know this from past experiences.)

I am glad you do not deserve a doctor who has gone through medical school and is with the AMA. I want to have someone that has a back ground better than bed pans. If they were that smart, they would be a doctor and have gone to medical school. Now come on and tell me how good you are since all the NP get on here as soon as anything is said and blow their own horns.

You are not a doctor no matter how many times you say you are. How about an aide being a teacher? Why waste your time going to school. Just say you are an engineer, MBA, etc.

Good Grief! Why would you think they wanted you to die? Did they
schedule a follow up with Dr. Kivorkian for you

No wonder Eric Ammons wants to leave!
so sorry

This hospital will never be what you want. This is because all the people around here want free healthcare. Well, smarties, someone has to pay for it. I'm tired and so is the government. Tired of you expecting something for nothing. Lets all just see the drs and pay our bills like grown ups.
