Usually during a normal business day, my patient load starts at 9am and I tend to finish up aroud 5pm, with an average of 8 patients per day. I perform a variety of tests, including echocardiograms, stres echos, carotid artery ultrasounds, ABI's, ans assist the physicians with ETT's.
There are always ample opportunities to learn about some type of cardiac pathology and the doctors are always eager to help you improve you skill set.
I have grown tremendously since I started working here, and I know that the doctors trust and can depend on my studies. Not only am I helping my patients, but it is personally very rewarding to know that I helped treat and comfort another person.
