There is only one reason why D.C.s work Fridays.
There is also only one reason why D.C.s work Saturdays.
It’s because they aren’t seeing enough patients between Monday and Thursday. Period.
Sure, they justify overworking by saying things like “Fridays are my busiest days” or “I like working Saturday mornings because it’s only a few hours and it’s calm and casual.”
They think this way because they don’t know and can’t do better.
…and because they haven’t experienced having Thursday evening through Sunday night off each and every weekend.
They don’t understand that working 4 days straight and having 3 days off to relax and enjoy life is a game changer.
…and they don’t know how to keep patients.
Instead they keep having to replace them.
It doesn’t have to be that way for you.
