Family medicine is one of those things that you really need to know a little bit about everything.
You can’t worry about these things if you are not in a good place physically.
Your patients will find another doctor, but your mom can’t find another daughter.
At the end of the day it comes with knowing your level of expertise.
There’s never going to be enough providers to care for all the needs of the all the patients we have.
I would rather you say “I don’t know” than to assume and make a mistake – Because we are not making donuts.
