State Acts to Protect Residents From Improper Medical Care

The lack of physician supervision over the staff of a local medical practice is at the heart of a state investigation of a doctor and her assistant. According to charges filed against the assistant, patients were improperly diagnosed and treated by a physician assistant who was not properly supervised by a medical doctor as required by Nevada law.

Investigators claim that the physician assistant ran the medical practice with little oversight by the doctor, who is alleged to have visited the clinic just once a month. The laws require physician assistants to work under the supervision of a doctor.


  1. I'm so glad the federal shutdown BS is over. It had me real worried about people with their insurance and medicare help. So many people depend on government services. Let's vote those suckers out now. -Ilia

  2. Visiting the clinic just ONE time a month? Revoke the doctors license for negligence to patients. PAs, CNAs and RNs are great, but they ARE NOT doctors.

  3. So sad to hear about the mistreatment of patients. Elderly patients must get it the worst! -SARAH!!!!!
