It was a very busy place. There were over nine physicians and never a dull moment.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – May 6, 2012
Typical day at work would be to get syringes prepared first thing in the morning and get them in the exam rooms. These contained numbing medicine for when a bx was needed. Escorted pt to exam room and got their chief complaint and reviewed med list/allergy list. I followed my physician into the room and as he examined pt I would scribe in pts chart. I helped with minor removals of potential skin cancers, put specimen in container , made sure pt information on bx bottle was correct and then placed container and paperwork in correct place for pick up. Also took pictures of all sites that were biopsied. I also helped with surgeries under the guidance of my physician. Did phone triage, scheduled apts, etc...got along great with coworkers..Hardest part of job was the long hours, but it was worth it. Most enjoyable part of job was interacting with my pts and helping them in anyway possible. I learned so how to do procedures and surgeries, learned a lot about different skin conditions. I was also responsible for ordering and stocking supplies.
love taking care of pts, loved learning, loved taking on new challenges.
long hours, pts who were not compliant
