In the article, both doctors tell of their experiences practicing as locum tenens physicians. The article also discusses what it's like for physicians who choose to pursue a locum tenens lifestyle.
Here are some excerpts from the article, featuring our physicians:
Dr. King realized just how valuable her CompHealth rep was to her when, after being chased into a hospital closet by the angry relative of a patient, she called her CompHealth rep for solace and assistance in ending the contract‚Äîeven though she was on assignment for a different staffing company.)
When the alternative to seeing a locum tenens physician is not seeing a doctor at all because patient demand overwhelms provider supply, the position of locum tenens services as a viable system of care delivery is strengthened. And as Dr. Crowley put it, "As long as you have a good bedside manner, people will be very pleased with their care."
