"If you have a chronic illness, choose a practice with a dedicated staff registered nurse (RN). Whether you choose to go to a traditional family practice physician or a larger group practice, make sure the staff includes an RN whose role specifically includes dealing with patients who have a chronic condition, say Farbstein. That way, if the doctor is unavailable, the nurse can help with any problems or answer questions. You also want a practice with an organized office staff since you'll be working with them to arrange prescriptions, appointments and treatments."
We think it's great advice - kudos to Women's Day for recognizing the important role of nurses!
