He [Physician X] has been mentoring me since I started. I’ve only been doing this about three and a half years so he has just been a mentor all the way through. He has been here longer than any other provider in the East. He’s been here 13/14 years, so he knows the system and the people and the players and he knows his stuff really well, so I can pick his brain. Three and a half years ago when we moved here it, the idea was really green. I had no idea what to expect. So setting up this practice as my own practice [with] my own patients isn’t a super common thing for nurse practitioners.
