    It may be because physicians needs time off as well, not because they cannot pay for one. Nurse Practitioners are competent to take care of most cases that will arise and if not, paramedics will take the person to the proper place.

    Sad, really sad. Can't pay for a doctor? Makes you want to question if you should live in the area, doesn't it?
