Kim: My name is Kim Lige, and I'm a surgical assistant. I work
with Dr. Parker, and he is one of the easiest doctors I've
ever worked for. I mean, we have a relaxed but
professional atmosphere to work in, and it just makes doing your job a
little easier. The patients here love our doctors. I
mean, they have great bedside manners. They interact
with the patients very well. As a surgical assistant, my
main concern is to make sure that the patient is relaxed, comfortable, and
well taken care of. The staff is great. I mean, each
doctor here has their own personal team, but the whole
group is just amazing to work for.
Courtney: My name is Courtney Mathis, and I'm a surgical assistant
for Dr. Ingles. Working with the doctors are great. When I
first started here, I was first considered a floater,
so I got to work with each doctor. Then Dr. Ingles decided that he wanted
to hire me on his team, so I got to strictly work with him and
the group that he has, and I've thoroughly enjoyed it.
When we first bring the patients back, we ask them if
anything's changed in their medical history. We'll get them hooked up to
all the monitors, put them a blanket on, make sure they're
comfortable in the chair. Some of our patients that
come in nervous, we'll hold their hand while we start
the IV, just make sure they're comfortable until they drift off to sleep.
