Im not sure what it is but I couldn't see myself as a ER doc for all my life. Sure the lifestyle is great but I prefer the limited structure of an office schedule I think and being able to expect whats coming through the door next. Also I think just the typical quality of er patients are a turn off. It seems like 10% of the patients are true emergencies if even that many. 50% want some kind of pain medication and the rest have a minor medical problem... And then want pain meds lol.
Ugh I had one patient earlier today that I had to hold my breath while in the room... I actually started to get nauseated from the smell after a while. Lol oh the trials and tribulations!
