Technician Spotlight: Mikey Cancino
What do you like most about working with BioTek?
What I like most about working with Biotek Labs is the patient interaction and the great working environment. Biotek Labs offers many wonderful benefits to its employees and always has our best interest, and that of our patients, in mind.
What are your 3 goals each week?
- Bring in more ideas to increase patient flow and referrals from the providers.
- Catch up on everything in this already established lab, so that I can manage it the way that best fits me.
- Call all patients who have been waiting to hear back from the allergy lab, and get them back on track.
What is your favorite success story?
I have not had one just yet, as I have only been at my lab 2 ½ weeks.
What piece of advice would you give to other BioTek Allergy techs/locations?
It seems hard, but it’s not. You just have to come in with a positive attitude and it will pay off.
What is your favorite thing to do when you’re not at work?
Spend time with my family, and plan things like go out to eat, or watch a movie. $5 Tuesdays at the movies are my favorite!
What’s one thing you couldn’t live without?
My partner and my 2 cats.
If you could meet anyone, who would it be and why?
I would love to meet Betty White, She is just an all-around great human being, and funny!
What is something that only a few people know about you?
I like to feed and care for homeless pets. I usually will feed them if they have their little family and go back to check on them. If they’re alone, Ill feed and care for them and take them in to the Humane Society.
