Doctor vs. Provider – What Do YOU Call a Physician?

Posted by & filed under Medical Staff Services, Trend Watch.

Throughout my 38-year career I have been respectful and deliberate to reference a physician as “Doctor.” During the past eight years or so I would hear the term “Provider” used more and more frequently when referencing a physician.

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

That accident caused him to relearn everything that you and I take for granted – how to walk, how to talk, and more.
