"What about allowing retailers to operate medical clinics? In 2015, New York had only 18 such clinics, 'one of the lowest penetration rates, per capita, nationally,' according to a report produced by the United Hospital Fund. Other states have more retail clinics because they allow them to be staffed by physician assistants and nurse practitioners. New York requires physicians to man the few clinics in the state."
