Spring! It’s the time of year when the weather warms, the days grow longer and we emerge from our winter den. Seeing the sun makes us all smile and we feel energized to get up and get out!
Occasionally, however, our fun in the sun turns an ankle or breaks a wrist and the last thing we want to do is visit the nearest ER.
The much easier solution is to stop by TOC’s Quick Care clinic, our convenient after-hours clinic.
Staffed with professionals who know orthopedics, Quick Care will get you in and out quickly with the peace of mind of knowing exactly what’s wrong with that twisted ankle.
And it’s one of those professionals that has been nominated as our Employee Spotlight this month. Rachel Hodges, a nurse practitioner, was nominated for her quality care and professional attitude in, what can sometimes be, stressful situations.
Clinic director, Matt Schaller, says, “Rachel has done a fabulous job of treating our patients and making their experience with TOC a positive one. I have had several patients from our Quick Care After-Hours Clinic at Park West compliment her professionalism, bedside manner and care to me. It has truly been an inspiring experience working with Rachel and seeing her dedication to the organization, the clinic and our patients.”
Rachel cares deeply for each patient and will follow-up with them and their case, even if a follow-up is not warranted.
Co-worker Phil Marlowe, an x-ray technician, says “Rachel quickly develops an excellent rapport with her patients. They feel comfortable in her care and confidant in abilities as a nurse practitioner. She has a pleasant disposition and is an excellent colleague. She works efficiently and always looks for ways to improve. Rachel is a valuable asset to TOC.”
Tennessee Orthopaedic Clinics is delighted to have Rachel Hodges on staff! We thank her for her exemplary service and encourage everyone to trust her quality of care.
