Behind the scenes: shinning a spotlight on Scribes

If you have been a patient here at MOST you may have noticed a person who follows the doctor into your exam room that has a computer. This person is called a Medical Scribe. Their job is to write down important information that the doctor needs for documentation purposes. Scribes allow the doctor to worry less about typing while they are seeing you for your injury, which means their attention is more on you.

Being a Scribe is great experience for any young person who is wanting to get into the medical feild (becoming a doctor, PA, DO, etc.) because it helps them learn medical terminology and get an idea how a doctors office operates.

Our scribes here at MOST are essential in making sure you get the best treatment possible. Next time you see them make sure to say hello! 🙂
