Dr. Purvi Parikh was included in the latest issue of St. Louis Metropolitan Medicine Magazine in a piece about studies that show the value of physician-led care.

Dr. Parikh say in the story: “While nurse practitioners and physician assistants are a vital part of the health care team, they are not a replacement for physicians and it is unsafe to assume so.” PPP is featured in the story, which states: “Physician for Patient Protection (PPP) is a national organization dedicated to ensuring physician-led care for all patients and advocating the truth and transparency regarding health care practitioners. PPP represents some 12,000 physicians, medical students and physicians in training in all 50 states.”
