Great company to work for
Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Seattle (Ballard) – July 7, 2012
A typical day at work starts with restocking my exam rooms and phlebotomy tray. Then I do my patient calls, which involve test results, refill results, Triage and recalls. When the doctor starts seeing patients we generally an average of 20 patients a day for a variety of things. I room the patients, take vitals, update meds, history and immunizations, Depending on what the doctor needs I might do a blood draw, immunization, injection, EKG, assist in minor procedures, run lab tests, etc. In between patients I will do more patient calls, order tests and referrals and call in prescriptions.
My coworkers always willing to help and their assistance is often needed.
My favorite part of the day is seeing patient happy and satisfied with their care, and feeling better about their ailment or situation.
The hardest part of my job is giving children their immunizations and having to see them cry, even though I know it is necessary for their well being.
fast pasted, variety of tasks, i enjoy working with all ages of patients.
