Physician Substitute 1

This is how sad it has become.    I was sent this post from Monster.com and this company is looking for a Physician Substitute 1.  Oh….my…..god!   It’s as if what we have become as physicians is so meaningless that anyone with some medical training will do.   “Practitioners” can now introduce themselves as a “Physician Substitute”.  Oh, wait a minute, that’s right, that won’t happen.  In twenty years I have never heard a midlevel correct a patient who called them “doctor”.  We are now moving into the aspartame phase of healthcare.
