I would arrive at 7:30 a.m. I would arrive early because of my commute, I traveled via train from Maryland to Washington, DC. I learned working for doctors is very difficult and if I had a choice, would not do that again. The workplace culture was rough, but with my personality, I made it work. I'm easy going, but a tenacious person, I love to complete my tasks daily.... I don't like leaving something undone, so to speak. The hardest part of the job was getting up at 4:00 a.m. to arrive on time, but I eventually got used to it.
Honestly, the most enjoyable part of the job was leaving at 4:30 p.m., but because of train breakdowns, I wouldn't get home before 8:00 p.m., just enough time to get ready for the commute the next day.
I truly enjoyed talking with the patients, and people I worked directly with.
