Will Physician Assistants Replace Cardiologists?

... in some remote areas, they already are:
Officials with Saint Vincent Healthcare say current heart patients have already been notified two of the center's cardiologists will no longer be offering service come May 31st, 2010.

Marketing Director for Saint V's, Margo Aldrich said Tuesday, the hospital will offer patients a chance to transition into other cardiology practices currently affiliated with Saint Vincent Healthcare. In the meantime, the Yellowstone Heart Center's two physician assistants, Heather Heggem and Tanja Wardell will continue to serve heart patients.

In a written response issued Tuesday by Aldrich, the company stated; "We will continue to grow our services, and plan to take our high-quality, award-winning cardiovascular program to the next level."
I'm seeing excellence, aren't you?
