Anna Martinez Practice Manager, La Jolla Vein Care
As a medical assistant and now manager of a large, thriving medical practice I have experienced both being in the trenches as a medical assistant and mentoring others as their leader. I can’t emphasize enough to my students the tremendous responsibility and role they have in the medical field.
Medical assistants set the tone of the practice
Not only do we have the responsibility of collecting the patient’s vitals and their PMH ( Personal Medical History), but we set and deliver the tone of the practice by being confident, polite and caring. Patients must feel confidence and trust going into a medical office.

The 5 best socks for swollen feet
When you’re struggling with minor aches brought on by travel, prolonged sitting and standing, or even pregnancy, the best socks for swollen feet are a game-changing addition to your wardrobe.
One of the most popular solutions for swollen feet are compression socks. These snug-fitting socks use graduated pressure to increase blood flow to the feet, helping to relieve discomfort. And according to Nisha Bunke, M.D., the CEO of La Jolla Vein Care, many people can benefit from adding a pair to their daily attire. She tells Bustle, “Compression socks are helpful for anyone to reduce swelling that may be associated with standing or sitting for long periods of time.”
While these socks may be useful for easing discomfort, they should never be used as a treatment for a medical issue before consulting with your physician. And while many people experience the occasional sore feet, sudden swelling (aka edema) should never be ignored, “especially if the swelling involves only one leg,” notes Dr. Bunke.
Store employees who stand for several hours a day are at a higher risk of developing varicose veins, warns Dr. Nisha Bunke of La Jolla Vein Care. Not only are they unsightly, but bulging leg veins are also an indication of poor circulation, which can endanger your heart health.
“To keep legs healthy, consider wearing compression stockings to give the blood vessels in the legs external support,” Dr. Bunke suggests. “There are different strengths of compression stockings, from light, over-the-counter support to medical-grade, prescription-strength versions.”
She points out that compression stockings also help with other symptoms that can come from prolonged standing, such as leg fatigue, swelling, aching and feelings of heaviness.
We asked medical professionals about their healthiest habits that anyone could implement in their everyday lives. Here is Dr. Bunke’s advice for living well.

In 1985, I became the fifth Dr. Fronek. The medical background of each member of my husband’s family provided an amusing backdrop for many dinner table conversations. While most families might be concerned with the cholesterol content of a food, our conversations centered around whether certain shellfish had higher or lower amounts of sphingomyelins.
