I love learning and being a tech allows me to learn constantly. You can be a COA, COT or COMT and you can even get a surgical certification. Some days are routine and a little boring but that happens in every job. I love the hours, not working holidays or weekends, getting good pay, not having to worry about my job when I'm at home, and working alongside very talented physicians. I dislike angry patients and family members and sometimes it gets so busy you can't think straight. However, these things are nothing compared to the stress of other jobs. And once you're done with the patient, that's it! You can move on and forget about it if they were unfriendly. One more great thing is that there are so many specialty practices you can work for to learn more. I love my job.
