Oct 26, 2008 ive worked with several PA's in the ED and they have all been wonderful. they are knowledgeable and thorough and spend alot more time at the bedside acually listening and assessing. none of the ones i worked with have ever had the god-complex like some doctors tend to get and have been totally down to earth. they definately know their stuff too..ive seen a PA pick something up on a CT scan that a radiologist missed. i recently saw a PA when i had an asthma attack and she was awesome. she even gave me her direct #, because my physician was unavailable, and told me to call if i ever needed anything.
