Robin G., CMA

Medical Assistant Dermatology

Dartmouth-Hitchcock, Manchester

I chose to work at Dartmouth-Hitchcock because I wanted a career not just a job. I wanted to be involved in an organization with a good reputation and longevity.

I love working in Dermatology because it is a hands-on approach, which means that the relationship that is developed with a patient is more personal. I try to be patient and empathetic to the concerns of our patients. It does take a team – teamwork is very important to be successful in the medical field. I try to always be available to help out the providers and clinical and secretarial staff in any way possible.

I was a patient at D-H for many years, and I always knew I wanted to work here when I finished nursing school. I believe that the spirit of nursing exists in the connections we make with people, not just in the tasks we perform for them.

Our department is like a family. It doesn’t matter if it’s your birthday, having a child, or someone is in a crisis, we are always here to show support for one another. I want my colleagues to know they have a voice, and that I respect them greatly for all they do.

When I can do something to lighten someone’s workload, it makes me happy. The projects I work on often start out as a bunch of puzzle pieces that have to fit together. When I am able to fit those pieces together, I feel accomplished and able to contribute to a product that will benefit the department and the organization.

I maintain a calm and friendly demeanor, so my colleagues feel comfortable approaching me when they need assistance. I keep informed of different resources throughout the hospital in order to assist promptly and accurately, reducing their workload. The work I do behind the scenes allows nurses the time and resources they need to prioritize our patients.

The patients we see bring me the most joy at work. Empathizing with patients helps me to educate and help them in terms that they can understand. I like to come to work with a can-do attitude. It’s beneficial to me, to the teams I work with and to our patients.

I treat all patients as if they were my loved ones. My goal is to show patients how passionate I am through the care I provide. I am happiest when I am able to make someone comfortable during what is for many, the most vulnerable moments of their lives. Empathy and patience can move mountains for a patient.

The joy in my work comes from holding the hand of a patient, knowing I’ve played a crucial role in saving their life. I’m proud to be part of a group of nurses truly devoted to their jobs, knowing that regardless of your title, you are a respected member of the health care team providing compassionate care.

“When we help to relieve a patient’s anxiety, we also relieve their family’s anxiety. The Medical Infusion staff are always smiling and have kind words for each patient and family member. We treat every patient as though they are part of our family. As a team, we laugh together and we take care of our patients together.

The Medical Infusions department has grown in size and scope, and I have enjoyed being a part of its development. I get to share my 39 years of nursing experience and technical skills with my team members on a daily basis.”

“I was born at Mary Hitchcock Memorial Hospital, graduated from the former Mary Hitchcock School of Nursing, and here I am 27 years later. I started working in the Faulkner building, and will retire from the Faulkner building when it’s time.

The kids and families I see and the colleagues I work with bring me joy every day. I make a difference in the lives of the patients and their families, helping them heal and empowering them to have confidence in their parenting skills. I make a difference in my colleagues’ lives by staying upbeat and providing support with a ton of laughter.”
