This eliminates the need for specialists across the state. It would destroy the careers of thousands of individuals, causing them to become bankrupt, leave the state of Virginia, and thus would reduce access to care. Specialists are there for a reason. They have gone through extra training. Have paid for it. Have taken board exams to qualify to call themselves specialists. It’s not  a title which is self appointed. youre reducing the specialty practice to a dog and pony show.
