Patient care is priority number one for those that work in the medical field. Today we say thank you to medical assistants.

I couldn't imagine the stress level being a medical assistant. We come to you at our worst. We come to you tired, sick, upset, worried, and at our wit's end. Whether it's concern about insurance or a bill, depressed about our own health of that or a loved one. You are always helpful and compassionate and for that, we say thank you.

It's also National Chocolate Cupcake Day today, so if you know a person or two that is celebrating National Medical Assistants Recognition Day, why don't you combine the two.
