Prescription burdensome regulation

Thank you for considering and removing language that requires physician names on prescriptions along side their physician assistant.  As you are already aware, we are highly trained providers who comply with state regulations for extra training regarding concerning Schedule drugs.  The current legislation is not only redundant but unnecessary. Even with the best of intentions it stimulates call backs from pharmacies and lost time rewriting prescriptions.   Thank you for cleaning up the legislation and moving forward.   Mark Ford. 24 years Orthopedics.  Fredericksburg,VA
