Family Medicine – Day 5

I feel like a broken record at this point, but all the attendings here have been really awesome. They are also all so different personality-wise. Today I worked with 2 different doctors. One of them is an addiction medicine specialist. We had a patient who was now sober for I forget how long and doing a lot better and planning to be able to go to his daughters weddings now that he’s winning his battles. It was super heart warming and inspiring to see. The other doc is perhaps one of the most enthusiastic, charismatic docs I’ve worked with. All her patients seems so comfortable with her. They joke around together, throw jabs at each other, but they also appear to trust her completely.

These relationship and these stories are what attracted me to medicine in general and are just a part what I’ve loved about family medicine so far.
