What are your general comments?

"I didn't mention the words "doctor", "physician" or "health care" during my interview. Instead, we just chatted. As far as I'm concerned, P&S views all of its interviewees as qualified candidates and they're just trying to get to know you so that they can turn you into the best doctor. Overall, it was great." -Posted 01/09/2003 | Report Response
