[00:00:09.200] The most enjoyable part for me [00:00:10.440] is actually getting to know a little bit about each person. [00:00:15.400] It's pretty neat when a patient comes in either months later or a year later [00:00:21.000] and we're able to have a little bit of a conversation [00:00:24.160] about some of those things that are happening in their lives. [00:00:26.920] Just the personal part of it is something that I really enjoy. [00:00:31.600] It's something that I didn't get to do working in a laboratory, [00:00:35.080] and I wanted to work with people. [00:00:37.560] Every patient that comes in has individual needs. [00:00:40.600] Those different needs is just something that I think [00:00:44.720] we try to address individually and specifically [00:00:48.480] so that people feel like they got the most out of their experience and their visit. [00:00:53.000] The doctors that are here, they have made me want to come back [00:00:57.880] for the four years that I've been going here. [00:01:00.040] It's not just the doctors, it's the staff, it's the whole practice. [00:01:04.440] It's almost like they have a unique personality here. [00:01:09.800] People come back and tell me, [00:01:11.080] "This was easy to do. This was difficult to follow. [00:01:14.640] This item or over-the-counter product worked or it didn't." [00:01:18.360] That's just part of the learning process, [00:01:21.200] and that's what gives you the experience to be more efficient, [00:01:24.840] more effective, and be able to help more people down the road.
