About a year ago, I was at a point in my life that I knew I wanted to make a difference but was not sure how or where. Then I started to volunteer at Doctors Care with the hope and desire to make a positive impact in the lives of the less fortunate. I wasn’t sure how that would happen but truly believed that at the end of the day, I would know. I was not disappointed.
I am now fortunate to be on a truly dynamic and thoughtful staff where I work in an environment that emphasizes patient care above all. So everyday I ask, “Why am I here?” and by the end of the day I know that I do help make a difference, not only in the lives of our patients but also in our staff. My responsibilities as IT assistant do not regularly require having direct contact with patients, but when I do the feeling is something special. Even opening the door for a mother carrying a sick child into the clinic has an impact.
While I came here to make a difference in other people’s lives, I’ve actually been rewarded by Doctors Care making a difference in mine.
