What Physicians Say About Working at Patient First

“I had an opportunity to join Patient First during my final year of residency. Being able to work as a resident enhanced my knowledge and procedural skills, which augmented the completion of my residency training. Once my residency was completed, I was able to transition seamlessly to a full-time attending with Patient First. During this time, not only was I a new graduate and a new physician at Patient First, but I was also a new mother, and the flexible schedule at Patient first really helped me. Within my first year of working full-time, I got involved with provider training, including classroom and on-the-job training. Additionally, I have since advanced within the organization and am excited to have been appointed Medical Director at one of our medical centers.” – Heather Osher, DO

“I joined Patient First after several years in private family practice. I really enjoyed traditional primary care, but Patient First provided the opportunity to continue primary care in a setting that also offered more acute problems and the ability to take care of individuals in a more emergent setting. Now that I’m here, I have a hard time imagining practicing in any other environment. I started as a staff physician and advanced relatively quickly to my current position of Medical Director. I am continually impressed by how well Patient First is run and with how much attention is given to even the smallest of details. It truly has the feel of a small private office, with all of the benefits of being part of a larger organization. The setting allows my colleagues and me to do what we do best – spend time with patients and give them the absolute best care that we know how.” – Mark A. Paster, MD
