Health care needs

I’m writing this to get some feedback from my fellow nurses regarding some of the biggest health care needs you’ve noted in your practice.

I work with an insurance company and I’ve noticed that so many customers have a multitude of chronic conditions and see so many specialists but there’s nobody to “put the pieces together” if you will. Is anyone aware of any integrative type doctors who really look at all of the pieces to come up with solutions? I understand a PCP should do this to some extent, but PCPs often have such limited time with patients that it’s not possible.
