Does your PCP need to be an MD? Is NP okay? I am using one medical and there doesn’t seem to be many MDs available

Don’t do PCP. Idk if MD matters but any angel dust will get ya


NP is fine.


Yup, totally fine. Your insurance company probably prefers it, haha. (Lower charge for them.)

NP’s can prescribe drugs

Agree, a good NP is fine for primary care and will typically be part of a larger practice with access to MDs if needed.

Never had an issue with NPs from One Medical. Once I was very sick and the NP pulled in an MD. IMO anything super serious will be handled by a specialist anyways.

I need help! We have a 1 year old and 3 year old. Both my husband and I work long hours usually.

I am so far behind at work, but I am also so tired and burnt out from working every weeknight and weekend trying to play catch-up. How are other folks dealing with this? It’s so out of hand, it can’t keep going like this

I adopted a dog early in 2021 when I was a biglaw M&A associate. From the start, he was always under my desk when I was working and sat as close to me as possible. He was a little doggie doughnut sleeping on my feet. This went on every day for 11 months until I went in house. Nothing else has changed, but since going in house, my dog doesn’t sit in my office anymore. In hindsight, I understand now that he was comforting me because he knew I was so stressed. Dogs are amazing. That is all. ✌🏻🐶


WARNING: If you've raised a concern around workplace discrimination with your manager or HR, consider consulting with a lawyer NOW - even if it's just a single meeting get guidance on how to document occurences, what to do with the documentation, & what your options are. If HR told you they are "investigating" you need to know that HR isn't doing the "investigation" that you think they are. HR will protect the company's interests & they'll deploy grimy tactics to do so - including faux empathy.
