Doc has a poor bedside manner and needs help getting her own patients so they are routing your patients to her, because you have a good bedside manner and lots of patients want to see you.

If I were you I would be generous about this. You're salaried, so days you work with this doc are easier, but you are still paid the same. Seems like a win. If patients complain, direct them to management. I would enjoy my light days with doc. Bring a book. Go online and get stuff done.

As long as I was otherwise happy, this would not be a reason to leave. The fact that doc needs you to get patients is a plus and shows you are important to developing customer satisfaction. I don't think this means they will let you go. I think it means the opposite.

This!   I work in a large practice where the doctors are amazing. However, the fact is the NPs/PAs/CNSs have more time to spend with them and see them more often. Although we bill at 85% of the MD rate, we keep our pts healthy by more frequent look-sees so we are profitable also.

This is our scheduling practice where I work. We do not work on RVUs so the expectation is that Dr. 's can take patients off our schedule and they get to fill first.  Thankfully they usually take complex patients that they know better and it makes more sense for them to see. 

We  are still held to RVU goals and fill rates...but since it doesn't effect our pay right now  (that is changing)  that is the law of the land.   My concern is that it will be hard to change the culture when our pay is RVU based in the future.
