Taking calls from physicians and patient's in Triage. I learned to take vitals,timed walks for MS patients,documention,filling out paper work for patient's starting on ne MS medication.

Doing Mini mental examinations and sleep study questions.
Management was nice and I worked with a wonderful group of medical assistants,physicians,social workers and physician assistants.
The hardest part of the job was not being able to schedule a patient when they wanted to be seen and when I got to really know a patient and the passed away.
The best part of the job was when a patient and the physician's acknowledged you by letting you know that you were doing a great job.
