Peggy Roberston

In support of Colon Cancer Awareness Month, we’re showcasing a few of our hardworking GI employees. This week's spotlight is on Peggy Robertson, a GI nurse and Endoscopy veteran of 14 years.

So, why did Peggy choose to work in endoscopy? Read on to find out.

Peggy first became a nurse for the simple reason of helping others. She started her career in a burn and trauma unit before transferring to the OR and landing in endoscopy, which she says is actually very rewarding.

Her favorite part of the job? Patient interaction.

“Our patients are usually embarrassed and anxious. I enjoy helping them relax and calm down by offering a warm blanket, caring conversation, a kind smile and a warm touch,” says Peggy. “A wise person once told me that a day at the GI lab is a day at work, but to my patients it’s a day they’ll remember. My goal is to make it a positive experience.”

Thank you for all you do, Peggy!
