I recommend Dr. Cannon at PCA. He's personable, listens to you, thorough, and really keeps to his appt schedule. I don't think I've ever waited more than 10 min.

He's not an MD.

From the PCA website, are they lying?

John (Jay) Cannon, M.D.
Dr. Cannon is a Family Practice physician who joined PCA in 2000. He did his undergraduate work at Abilene Christian University and completed medical school at Kansas City University School of Medicine and Biosciences. He practiced in Ardmore, Oklahoma before making his move to Paris.

Dr. Cannon is certified by the American Board of Family Practice. He is a fellow of the American Academy of Family Practice.

According to PRMC's online website, he is listed as a D.O.

Dr. Cannon AND the nurse practioner Brandy are excellent. They are thorough and really CARE for their patients.

Cannon and Ball are both DO's.

Both do a good job though, very personable.

Just be aware...neither see hospital patients anymore, they sign out to the Hospitalist program at PRMC. These guys do a great job, but some pts want to see THEIR doc when in the hospital....

The page I saw on the PCA website listed Cannon as an MD. Apparently the only difference between MD and DO, however, is a DO gets an advanced degree in Osteopathic Medicine.

I heard that all PCA doctors sign out to the hospitalist program. Do you know if that includes the pediatricians?

I use a PCA doctor. I was admitted to the hospital this week. I was not impressed with the hospitalist. He was OK I guess, but I did not like being treated by a doctor I did not know. Plus, he was hard to understand.

Yep. Most doctors who use hospitalists are lazy and want to play golf.

In my opinion, if you need a pediatrician Dr. Clark is the best by far and he is at the PCA building. We started using Dr. Trammell when Dr. Plummer retired and we like him.

Before a woman (or man) marries a doctor, they should know what they are getting into. Being a physician is more than a job, it's a calling.

I went to Carolyn Robinson, a Nurse Practioner, this week and was very pleased. I got in fast and she spent time with me answering questions and discussing my condition.

You, my dear are a complete moron. Ok, so someone devotes 4 yrs to undergraduate work, then 4 yrs to med school, then 1 yr to internship and another 4 to 7 to residency and fellowship and you have this opinion of them???? You have no clue. The docs here are more than swamped. There are demanding, unappreciative patients (such as yourself) who call the office demanding a call back (we get approximately 30 calls per day). There are numerous faxes to be answered each day (usually more than 50 per day) wanting Rx refills, etc. Each doc sees about 20 to 30 patients in the office per day. Not to mention all the paperwork the patients bring in to be filled out by the doc, faxes from home health agencies that have to be replied to, referrals to be written, nursing home orders to write, after hours call (how would you like to be awakened in the middle of the night multiple times for issues that could wait till 8 am?), lab work to review, etc, etc. They get the privilege of missing out on all social events, not being able to see their families and relying on others to help raise their kids. Guess how much money docs get paid for all this work??? The ONLY thing they can charge for is an office visit, period. So, they have to pack them in like sardines to pay off the $200,000 they racked up in student loans for med school. All so they can cater to your whiney self. Get a life and stop feeling sorry for yourself because you are such a loser.
