This physician loves primary care. A pandemic isn't going to change that.

“I just started laughing. It was early on Monday morning during our COVID surge. I couldn’t help myself. Phones were not on yet, but I already had triage COVID calls.  “Put on your roller skates” was all I was thinking. I questioned my laughter.

The day and a life of a primary care physician during COVID. Not a fun one by any means. Certainly not one to laugh at. But, if we don’t laugh, we would cry. Everyone knows that cliche. Our days never end. We don’t leave. The EMR has made sure of that. The nurses and staff are expected to smile and be respectful. They have, in fact, been so amazing during this pandemic. They have shown up every day with smiles on their faces.”

Kelly Lisciandro is an internal medicine physician.

She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “Why do I laugh during a pandemic?” (https://www.kevinmd.com/blog/2021/01/why-do-i-laugh-during-a-pandemic.html)
