News on the Medical Scribe Front

August 2018 Scribe of the Month

Posted by Peggy Fredrickson on Sep 20, 2018 9:00:00 AM
We're proud of our scribe of the month winners!

Our scribes work tirelessly day and night serving the best doctors HR_SOTM_Logo.pngpracticing medicine. We believe every single one of them is amazing, but every once in a while there are a handful of scribes who go above and beyond. The PhysAssist Scribe of the Month (SOTM) program was developed to recognize a few stellar individuals each month who embody the essence of what it means to be a scribe. We view these attributes as sincere, caring, responsive, innovative, balanced and efficient.

How It Works

Every month, outstanding scribes are nominated for a Scribe Spotlight by members of their team or fellow scribes. We've poured over all of this month's nominees and are proud to announce those selected to be Scribe of the Month for August 2018 in each region that we service across the country. Check 'em out below! #SOTM

Jacob Coronado - Houston, TX

"It feels great to recognized, it means so much to me, and it makes me want to make someone else’s day! I’ve definitely had meaningful experiences working as a scribe, but this is definitely a highlight."

Jacob Coronado - Texas Group


Reason for Nomination: 

“Jacob is the ideal scribe. Jacob consistently comes through for the team. When we need last-minute coverage, I typically ask Jacob first as he promptly responds and is able to help. Jacob's passion for a career in medicine is exhibited through his work ethic as a scribe. Jacob's discipline and attention-to-detail makes him a great scribe to work with."


What made you want to be a scribe? 

Besides acquiring experience in the medical field; I wanted to see doctors in action, observe how they interacted with patients, and understand how the whole process worked.


What are your future career aspirations?

I will be going into medicine to become a doctor. Although I am unsure of what type of doctor I would like to become, I am interested in primary care and oncology, because I believe I could build meaningful relationships with patients and their families. That would be awesome.


Who inspires you? 

It goes without saying that I am inspired by all the doctors, nurses, and techs that put their all and then some into their work in the ED. And, of course, my fellow scribes are some of the hardest workers I know. However, my family members are my biggest inspirations. They unknowingly motivate me to work hard and be persistent through the example they set. They’re all crazy, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.


Stephanie Hughes - Phoenix, AZ

"I enjoy working in the ED because every day is different and I’m constantly learning. It’s an honor to be appreciated for all my hard work."

Aug 2018 Stephanie Huges - West Group


Reason for Nomination: 

“Stephanie consistently goes above and beyond to support her team. As a scribe, she is always willing to trade or pick up shifts when others need coverage, even for shifts that people often do not want to work. As a trainer, she has had multiple shifts recently with off track trainees. She is innovative and invested in providing them feedback and strategies for improvement. Stephanie is always respectful and kind and I have yet to hear her speak poorly of anyone or complain otherwise."


What is the best part of working on your team?

The best part of working on my team is working with my fellow scribes and all the ED staff.


If you weren’t going into Medicine, what else would you be interested in?

If I weren’t going into medicine I would want to be a kindergarten teacher.


What are your future career aspirations?

I hope to be a PA and work in pediatrics.


Timothy Knittle - Ann Arbor, MI

"It's such an honor to be awarded the Scribe of the Month! I feel the award surpasses my reason for recognition. I feel I was just doing my job as a scribe trainer to be sure that I took the measures needed so that my trainee would be ready to go solo. To receive such an honor for what I feel was a small effort is really extraordinary."

Timothy Knittle - Northeast Group


Reason for Nomination: 

“Tim is a newer [trainer] on the team and has continued to be a great example for our trainers and team members. He is always giving detailed evaluations and suggestions on how his trainees can improve their skills. He goes above and beyond with his duties as a trainer, specifically contacting multiple administers to solve a firstnet issue for his recent trainee who was locked out of her account. He reached out efficiently and quickly to ensure her account was recovered in time for her solo shift. Ever since joining our team Tim has been a great asset, from shift coverage to assisting in the needs of his trainees, he is a valued member of our team!"


What made you want to be a scribe? 

I was excited to gain the invaluable clinical insight that comes with doing the job while also receiving the satisfaction knowing that it helps improve provider's efficiency and offers more time for patient focused care. The both of these aspects make this job so worthwhile!


How do you prefer to spend your free time? 

It's always a great time to take my pet German Shepard out to the lake front and play fetch with her when I have time off work. This is the best way for me to de-stress and have fun.


Who inspires you?

Dr. Perrotta is my biggest inspiration. I've had many opportunities to go into the rooms with him and watch his patient interviews in person. He's very thorough with his questions and explanations about the patient's diagnoses, and he brings a calming presence to the rooms and to the team he works with. He's the physician that I hope that I become someday.
