Advanced Medical Assistants to the Rescue!

What to do when the doctor cares too much

Yes, every doctor cares about their patients. But some doctors really, really care about their patients. These are the selfless physicians who will put the practice of medicine ahead of their need for personal time, family, and the need to recharge after what can be a very long day at the office.

The results can be very bad for everyone’s health.

According to a study in the September-October 2015 Family Practice Medicine, 46% of physicians report some level of burnout, with consequences ranging from lower patient satisfaction and increased errors to higher risk for drug and alcohol abuse among providers, and even suicide.

Defying a trend

If you happen to be in the Salt Lake City area and visit any of the 18 locations run by Granger Medical Clinic, you’ll see a lot that looks familiar, including a busy front office and the range of primary and specialty services you’d expect from any growing medical facility.

But what if there were a way to preserve the sense of discovery and renewal that we experienced this past weekend in Dallas?

Sunday: The measure of who we are

Posted by eClinicalWorks on 10/8/17 6:43 PM

The Saturday Night Celebration still seems to echo about the Gaylord Texan Hotel & Convention Center, from the far corners of the Atrium to the Glass Cactus nightclub. The aroma of short ribs lingers in the air, the images of cowboys on stilts have been captured on many a smartphone, and the sights and sounds of the silent disco won’t be forgotten anytime soon.

Working on Saturday — and loving it!
