One of the cool parts about my job as an Urgent Care Doctor is that my schedule can be very flexible, and there’s a lot of opportunity to work extra if I’d like. These past few weeks I’ve been pushing the pace a good amount, and I can definitely feel it.  Just to give you a small snap shot... I worked last Friday through Monday, was off Tuesday, worked all day Wednesday, then worked overnight from Thursday going into Friday. Today, I’m back at it again for another 12 hour shift!
•
•⚕
For me, the most important thing is that I keep doing the things that matter to even though I’m so busy. I make sure to continue to eat healthy and get my workouts in, without letting myself off the hook because I’m “too tired” or “had a long day.” It’s important for me to hold myself accountable!
•
•⚕
The most difficult part of working so much though is that the potential for burnout gets higher and higher. I make it a point to recognize that and adjust my behavior and mindset accordingly. I remind myself of the fact that my patients need me, and that I’m here to help them. I make sure to smile, be kind, and take my time for the benefit of the patients… they certainly appreciate it! In moments this can be difficult to do, but it’s all about maintaining that perspective, which is something we need a lot of as Health Care Providers.

Just a couple more days of work and then I get to enjoy a few days off for Thanksgiving with my loved ones! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! If you’re working this weekend like me, I hope your shift goes well!! 🧡

I hardly ever wear scrubs outside of the operating room.  It’s just me.  I like wearing tailored fit clothes and y’all already know about my shoes.  I enjoy looking professional and making a good first impression.  I find that when I’m well dressed, I feel more confident and patients (or their parents) respond to me in kind. But very rarely, I  will wear scrubs when I’m rounding in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.  Mainly because, let’s be honest, I hardly own any dress shoes without a 4 inch heel, and that’s not exactly conducive to walking around the hospital. So, what I do in the NICU?

In the NICU, I examine the retinas of the most premature babies, using this tool in my hand, the indirect ophthalmoscope. Any baby who is born less 30 weeks gestational age (so, 2.5 months premature) and under 1500 grams, or 3.3 pounds, is at risk for developing retinopathy of prematurity, or ROP.  In advanced cases, ROP can lead to a retinal detachment, so when it gets to a certain stage, laser surgery is recommended (like I did last month and posted after the fact) to try to prevent that from occurring.  Usually, I’m monitoring the development of the retina until it is fully mature, which doesn’t happen typically until the babies reach 38-40 weeks gestational age.  The babies’ eyes are dilated with dilating drops before the exam.

I just finished my 2 month rotation block in the NICU.  I feel very lucky to be able to care for these tiny miracles and enjoy my NICU rotation.  I wore scrubs only twice and you know what one of the passing nurses said to me on one of those days, as she glanced at my sneakers? “Aww, I wanted to see what shoes you were wearing today!” #NICU #doctorshoedown #prematurebaby

We are very blessed to be in #residency near so many of our family and friends.
•
•
The long hours away from #drdaddy can be hard on littles and significant others.
•
•
Many #residentfamilies are far from their family and friends. It's important to cultivate relationships in #medschool and during #residency because those people become your #tribe.
•
•
When you have a tribe, you have people who understand your crazy life, the long hours, and the canceling plans last minute because your #studentdoctor, #resident, or #attendingphysician got off early.
•
•
Our little and her #cousinsister get lots of face-time due to our current proximity, but we also get the priviledge of hanging with so many of our #medschoolfamily kiddos and spouses.
•
•
#Matchday will bring some separation for your #medschool tribe, but in this #givingthanks post, I'm so grateful to have a mixed tribe of our family, friends, #medschoolfamily and #residentfamily so close.
•
•
And the ones that we were separated from during #Match are still present in our lives with he help of technology, because when #wecandohardthings together, no distance can diminish that bond 💜

This week is all about me starting to manage and take ownership of my own patients and I’m SO EXCITED (and admittedly a little nervous.) I’ve been working one on one with the attending physicians for the past two weeks and it’s really given me the mentorship that I’d been hoping for. It allows for continuity of care and continuous assessment of my skills with immediate feedback and constructive comments so I can improve. I’m loving working one on one with someone and so thankful that I get this opportunity to both ease and grow into my role. This week I’m managing a methadone week, discussing g tube placement with a family, and managing abdominal pain in another. I also get to see all my attending’s patients and discuss plans together. So far this week we’ve attended a care conference for a NICU baby, managed malignant metastatic bone pain in the oncology clinic, and are going to see a known patient with epidermolysis bullosa this afternoon. I love the variety of conditions that I get to see and treat! .

“Success isn’t always about greatness. It’s about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come.”
-Dwayne Johnson @therock •
•⚕
I got my Family Medicine Board Certification in the mail recently! I’ve gotta tell you… as cool as this whole process has been, this one was particularly sweet for me. Let me tell you why…
•
•⚕
Throughout this entire journey, it was always the big exams that rattled (sometimes shattered) my confidence. I’m not exaggerating when I say this, but my lowest moments were preparing for the MCAT’s, Block Exams, Shelf Exams, USMLE, or COMLEX. In life, we tell ourselves to focus on what we’re doing and to not compare ourselves to other people. But on this journey, that’s what these tests are the designed to do! They’re a measuring stick that opens some doors, and closes others. I lost a lot of sleep and lived through a lot of stress because of all of these tests!!!
•
•⚕
What I learned when I got to COMLEX Level 3, and eventually my Family Medicine Boards, was that I was making a mistake by allowing these exams to compare me to other people and define my capabilities. The moment I stopped comparing myself to my colleagues, I did better. I focused on which study methods worked for me, focused on my own deficiencies, and fine-tuned my own test taking strategies. The results were better than they had ever been! What I learned was that I had it right all along, and had fallen into the ‘comparison trap’. As much as we’re surrounded by people going through this journey with us, it’s OUR JOURNEY!
•
•⚕
I tell people this all the time… I’m not a genius, not by any stretch. I sat through all my lectures, studied for hours, made countless sacrifices, and worked hard. The culmination of all of that, for me, is this.  I’m excited and proud to display this in my office!! •

🍁🍂Fall doesn’t last very long in Las Vegas. It seems like we go from it being very (very) hot, to a few cool days for a random week, to it being hot again, and then before you know it, it’s winter. But if you look closely, you can appreciate the leaves changing colors. New seasons, no matter how short, mean new beginnings. Take a moment to go outside, breathe in the cool air, and appreciate the changes happening around you. 🍁🍂

Even a 5 year old gets that certain injuries would prevent the ability to work. of course she doesn’t get the concept of the consequences of that. the point is, you should be able to have fun with your kids, like this, and not fear injury would take away your future income. live your life, know you’re protected. ********************* contact us at doctordoctordi.com today for your quote.

For #ThrowbackThursday I found this old picture from my First Year of Medical School @touronevada in 2011. It was one of our first OSCE with simulated patients! We all got dressed up, put on our short white coats, and prepared to see standardized patients! Those days seems so long ago now! At the time, I felt like I was so far away from becoming a Doctor, and it seemed so far out of reach! •
•⚕
What’s amazing is that when I look at this picture now, I don’t see Medical Students. I see a group of young Physicians who are practicing medicine all across the country! •
•⚕
Wherever you are on your journey, and whatever you’re doing in life, I hope you always remember how far you’ve come! Stay the course!! You’ve got this!!!

Happy Diwali or Deepavali (as it’s pronounced in South India)! Diwali is the Indian festival of lights – the triumph of good over evil, light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance.  And, in these turbulent times, isn’t that what we need?

My son was born on Diwali, so other than being one of the main holidays in India, it holds a special place in my heart.  Lamps and firecrackers are lit to symbolize the inner light that protects us from darkness.  It’s a time for families to feast together and celebrate.  We wear new clothes (you know I like that!) and decorate with beautiful Rangoli, colored sand used to make intricate designs on the floor of entryways to houses.  It also marks the beginning of the new year and new season!  #happydiwali #diwali2018 #desigirl

A Srilankan mama and Chilipino (Chinese-Filipino-Sri Lankan) toddler went out to vote today! Well I voted, she was there for the sticker and moral support (aka trying to write smiley faces on the ballot) 🤣 Having recently finished training I’m guilty of not having used my voice, my vote, in the last several years. I came up with excuses- being on call, too tired from clinic or the OR, picking up my baby from daycare. But this year I’m done standing by the way-side. It literally took <10 mins and with a squiriming toddler in my arms. Once a upon a time women, especially women of color, were not allowed to vote. Let’s help our country continue making strides by using our voice. Thank you for starting the #votinginmedicine campaign @dr.nedadoost! The outcome of the 2018 midterm elections will impact which policies get passed or not. Go out and vote today, use your voice!

Rock the vote like I’m rocking these rockstuds!  When I was in residency I was specifically instructed not to register to vote by my senior resident. The reason? Because once you’re registered, you’re eligible to be chosen for jury duty, and the residents who were actually selected for jury duty were treated like absolute pariahs in our training program. As if they had intentionally tried to inconvenience  their colleagues as opposed to performing their civic duty. That’s why seeing posts by others like @mochainmedicine and @drkater, those still in training, doing their civic duty by voting, makes me happy that things have changed.

I never voted when I was a resident physician in NYC.  I vote now.  Even though I’m busy running a practice, picking up and dropping off 3 kids, and being a doctor.  I vote because of those things - so I can let my voice as a mother, doctor, small business owner, and daughter of immigrants, be heard.

They didn’t have stickers at my polling station but these print outs instead.  And thanks to @dr.nedadoost for starting the #votinginmedicine campaign.  #rockthevote #hivoted #doctorshoedown

“You’re going to make a difference. A lot of times it won’t be huge, it won’t be visible even. But it will matter just the same.”
-Commissioner James Gordon •
•⚕
“Why do you want to be a Doctor/PA/Nurse/Etc.?” That’s the question, right? Every single interview, every single time. •
•⚕
I chose to answer this question (literally, every single time they asked) by comparing what we do to being a superhero… hear me out on this one. I’d say that growing up I always wanted to be a superhero, and this is the closest thing to it! Patients come to us with problems, with concerns. They turn to us to help them in their times of need.  We are able to make a difference in the lives of everyone we meet.  Sometimes, even, we save their lives.
•
•⚕
It’s not always easy, and we’re certainly not perfect. But we keep doing it nonetheless. That, to me, is pretty heroic!
•
•⚕
So anytime I take one of my little breaks I told you all about, walk through the parking lot in my white coat, and catch a glimpse of my shadow I remember that answer I gave during those countless interviews. My white coat is my cape!!

“Sometimes, you need to step outside, get some air, and remind yourself of who you are and who you want to be.”
•
•⚕
Some days at the Urgent Care can get a little crazy. I handle it by going outside and taking a little walk in the parking lot. For example, my team and I saw 110 patients the other day!! I found a little hiding spot outside of the Urgent Care where I can take a few deep breaths and gather my thoughts in between patients. Some fresh air and sunlight can do wonders, especially when things are getting hectic!
•
•⚕
Work is… well… a lot of work. Finishing Residency and working as an Attending Physician doesn’t mean things get easier. In fact, the opposite is true! So take a little bit of time for yourself when you can! You owe it to yourself and to your patients!

I hope everyone is having a nice weekend! •
