  • Prescribe or recommend prescriptions according to established federal and state regulations and requirements.
  • Performs, orders, and evaluates results of lab, x-ray, and diagnostic tests.
  • Provides coverage for other providers' patients when a provider is unavailable. Assist in acute care, follow ups, messages and prescription refills.
