Try looking online: Years ago, listings were available only in printed form. By the turn of the century, lists had become available online everywhere. Now, some lists are only online, and no longer printed. County medical societies (or other local medical societies), hospitals, and insurance companies usually list doctors by name, group, insurance plans, and location. The better websites have "Find-a-Doctor" pages.

A 23-year-old member asked:

What can general practitioners do for pneumonia?

Treat you: A general pacticioner should be able to treat you competently&d appropriately for a penumonia either as an outpatient or as an inpatient. Should he or she feel uncomfortable, they most assuredly will seek consultaiton from someone in a specialty field to help them further treat you. I would feel confident with a generalist physician treating this condition. Ask questions or seek other opinions.

What will a general practitioner do if I have harmed my self?

Depends: What harm have you done. A general physician will take your history, examine you and treat accordingly. Testing may be necessary and procedures may need to be done. Hopefully you have a trusting relationship with your pcp and cand discuss issues with him or her and not worry. I hope you have not harmed yourself badly and that you seek care.

How do physician assistants and general practitioners collaborate?

Many ways.: The scope of practice of pas depends on the state and their specialty. With general practitioners, pas usually work as "extensions" of the physician - and in theory, there should be good oversight of the work done by the pa. The physician should be available to answer questions the pa might have about the clinical case. In some states the pa can work without physician collaboration or backup.

Of course: Sound mind, can fire doc for any reason. Doc can fire patient under certain circumstances, with certain rules.

Sometimes it is a relief for both parties to separate, sort of like an amiable divorce (if there is such a thing). Conflicts in personalities, expectations, means of communication, degrees of satisfaction can all be involved, to say nothing of trust or lack thereof. Would recommend that the 90 year old ask around to find someone compatible.
