Internship (Former Employee), Anderson, SC – May 19, 2013
My time at Primary Care Associates was for an unpaid internship. The people are very professional and stay on top of work. During my time I would often just work up patients. This includes getting their weight, vitals and taking notes for the doctor on reasons they were being scene. The hardest part of the job was hearing the few unprofessional employees – more... curse and talk about other employees. I believe in professionalism and this did not show it. I do also however believe in putting things aside in order to work with fellow employees. The most enjoyable part of the job was working one on one with the patients. – less
