I support the proposed amendment of 18VAC85-50-110(1) to better reflect the collaborative nature of physicians and PA's working at the top of their licenses to provide access to quality care for patients.  The new phrasing reinforces the trust between and imperative upon all medical providers to recognize their knowledge and limitations, and to collaborate/refer/seek consultation when it would benefit the patient, regardless of when in the course of treatment that is.
