I am a Nurse Practitioner.  I have a solo practice,  when patients come to my 
office, they know who they are going to see.  There are good NP's and bad 
 NP's, just like good MD's and bad MD's. I always tell patients that they should
be comfortable and trust their provider no matter who it is.  Most of us are 
lucky enough to get a "good fit" with our health care provider.  It sounds 
like you did not.  I am sorry for your difficulty.  Please don't disparage all 
NP's for a bad experience with one.   Debbie Shivers - Aunt to Blake age 5
