Physician Assistants.

Canadian Collaborative Centre for Physician Resources, September, 2011.

“The 2010 results showed that less than 1% of physician respondents indicated that physician assistants were among the three main health care providers that they regularly referred patients to and/or collaborated with. Of these physicians, 73% were family physicians and the remainder from other specialty disciplines.”
