Let me tell you a little bit about myself, I love doing my job at Doctors on Duty. I love the enthusiasm in which some patients come in and joke around with me. I once had a patient that I'm never going to forget, she was a disabled 50 year old woman she was so friendly and had the mind of a 12 year old but she always kept a smile on her face. She came in and needed her flu shot. Once she saw me with the needle she starting moving a lot not wanting to get her shot. I made a distraction for her by speaking to her but once I was done she told me "i'm going to get you back" it was the funniest experience of my life. That opened my mind to how patients are vulnerable and we need to care for them as people not only as an every other day patient. My job as a Medical Assistant is to build a relationship with my patients and care for them as I would for a family member of my own. I believe in the ability of helping others and that is why I decided to be a caregiver.
