I would be more happy if my area didnt always have new people putting us on and slower techs. I want to be on and off at the time im suppose to be. That really can chap my hide. Also dontcare for the head at this clinic .very bad about returning calls and just doesnt seem to care about patients. More about employees wich i guess thats a good thing. But you know we have to sit here, none of us want to do this for joy. Most techs are very good and prompt just lately our section has had alot of slower ones.
