I have worked in the Medical field for over 9 years. I started in Veterinary Medicine and switched to Human medicine 5 years ago. I work as a Surgery Scheduler in a large Cardiology practice so I wear office attire, but many all of our MA’s, Nurses, PA’s and MD’s are always talking about the need for new lab coats. I wore them also when I was a Veterinary Assistant and when you work with Animals you go through Scrubs and coats constantly.
There are so many styles and the most important feature seems to be the comfort. You spend 8 or more hours in these and are constantly moving and on your feet, so to have a style that helps you feel human in a way that can still bring a flattering look as well as the comfort is a necessity. Finding scrubs can be hard. A few Mass Merchandisers carry them and some are comfortable, but most really are not at all. Online offers the most variety and better prices for the quality you get, but it is hard to measure and know the fit. That is where Medelita comes in!
