An Encouragement by a Family Medicine Physician

I’m working the respiratory screening clinic at our critical access hospital/clinic. Personally, this medical crisis has actually acutely resolved my feeling of burnout. I get to be creative, rules are less rigid. More time actually doing medicine and less composing perfect notes and waiting for my patients to be roomed, etc. Feel useful, crucial. No longer viewed by patients so much as a “Walmart” to get what they want/think they need, but rather as a life-line to meet the here-and-now needs. Yes, I’m very tired at the end of each day, but it’s a good tired.

Back to the basics of medicine—refreshing!

Praise the Lord, and put on your PPE!

For years and years the media has tended to sensationalize every little thing, which is making it very hard to hear the voices that are sounding a REAL alarm. We doctors don’t tend to be alarmist.
