I knew I was going to see some of my old colleagues at my new job. But it's even better! [View all]

These last three weeks have been hectic, stressful, and gratifying. I’m working at a much slower, more relaxed pace than at my old job.

Meeting up with a lot of my old colleagues, and providers with whom I worked when I was a Medical Assistant. It’s been such fun.

But I had an especially wonderful surprise in store. Back in the day, when I was a Medical Assistant, there was a guy who worked the front desk at one of the clinics I rotated through. He and I got along famously, and had a lot of fun on the job. He was a great guy.

I ran into him my second week at my new job. Just like me, he went to school to further his career. I became a Physician Assistant. But he went to Medical School! Graduated as a DO, which is a step above MD! I’m so proud of him. But not the least bit surprised by his success. I’m hoping I’ll get to work at his clinic every once in a while so we can catch up and work together again.

Anyway, while I miss my homeless patients, I’m much happier in my new work atmosphere.
