Welcoming and helpful work environment
Intern (Former Employee) – Opelika, AL – March 5, 2017
I worked five weeks in the Endocrinology and Metabolism Clinic and five weeks in the Diabetes and Nutrition Center. On a typical day I helped with breaking down and organizing patient files, answering the phone, sending doctors notes, scheduling and rescheduling patients, and checking in patients while having them fill out the appropriate paper work. This required working with Cerner software. I also learned to and assisted with uploading patients' insulin pumps and ordering their lab work through both Lab Outreach and Quest. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to know the staff and learning how to better interact with patients coming through the clinics. I learned a lot about proper communication and organization while witnessing helpful educational classes used to inform diabetes patients.
Nice and helpful staff, free lunches, clean environment
Disorganized at times, high no show rate at times, some rude patients
