Unique patient population, rich history

Posted by VISTA Staffing on Dec 15, 2014 1:06:00 PM

Whenever I go to places on locum tenens assignments I love to immerse myself in the culture.I have loved reading about New Mexico.The history in the area is unbelievable. Kit Carson was one of the early pioneers of Taos, New Mexico.We live about two blocks from the Kit Carson House.The town still maintains a very historic look.It’s quite an authentic looking Western town.

New Mexico is a very different patient population than my home in North Carolina.More than 90% of my patients are New Mexicans (as opposed to Mexicans).Although they have a Mexican heritage, they have been in this country, in New Mexico, often times longer than families of our country’s patriot founders.There’s a rich history.I love the people here; they are so warm and interesting.I’ve made a lot of friends.My wife has made a lot of art friends, people to go out and paint with.New Mexico is great for her.We love the culture, we love the food here, and we love the scenery.One highlight for sure is a little place we go for wonderful fish and shrimp tacos.I am going to miss those!
