What are the best aspects of your current role/job?
As a medical assistant in General Surgery, you form many different relationships with patients. Some are long term and some are short term. My role is to help the patient feel comfortable before and after surgery. And the best part of my role is seeing the smile on a patient’s face after surgery is over and done.

I take pride in always being willing to help out my co-workers and being open-minded to learning new things every day. That I am willing to step out of the box to help the next person.
