What is your role at the hospital? What do you do on a daily basis? 
I am the ambulatory care clinical coordinator for the licensed vocational nurses. I also work with Dr. Sucato and Dr. Riccio. Day-to-day, I am either in the clinics or at the desk taking care of patient phone calls, making sure the clinic is fully prepped or any other tasks that need to be done for the patients. I also have manager duties as well, but the clinic is one of my favorite parts of my job. I love getting to take care of patients and see their families.
