Meet the NWR Team: Patricia

Northwest Radiology would not be successful without the hard work and commitment of our dedicated team! We are proud to have such outstanding team members who not only provide exceptional care to our clients, but who also work tirelessly behind the scenes to keep things running smoothly every day.

Meet Patricia. She has been an important member of the NWR team for 19 years! 

Q. What roles and responsibilities have you had at NWR?

A. In my 19 years at NWR, I have held many different roles.  Some of my favorites have been assisting the x-ray techs in getting their patients ready and processing their x-rays.  I am really enjoying my current roles of assisting the CT and MR techs in obtaining prior records for comparison prior to a patient’s exam, being a “super user” on the computer system and being able to help others solve problems, and starting IVs for contrast exams.

Q. What have you learned through these experiences?

A. Aside from everything I have learned about radiology, learning to start IVs is probably the biggest.  I did not think I would want any part of it, but after some encouragement from my coworkers and my family, I gave it a try.  I am really glad I did!

Q. What have been some of the biggest changes and challenges?

A. The biggest change/challenge would have to be the situation with Covid-19.  Our hours have changed and we have been working a block schedule.  However, being able to continue to care for patients during this challenging time is quite rewarding.
