My name is Steve and I am Tadje Orthopaedic's x-ray technologist. As an x-ray tech, I take images of a variety of patient's, including new patients, re-check patients, post-op patients, etc. I have been with the Tadje Ortho team for approximately 2.5 years.
My first job out of school was as an x-ray tech for West Boise Radiology, which was an outpatient radiology clinic. I then became a tech for bedside x-ray for about 3 years. After this job, I began working in the orthopedic field and took a job with Orthopedic Associates. I continued my orthopedic experience by working with Dr. Moss and Dr. Naeve, which eventually turned into a job with St. Luke's. After Dr. Moss and Dr. Naeve retired, St. Luke's placed me as an x-ray tech for Dr. Tadje.
Working with Dr. Tadje has been both rewarding and challenging. He sees a wide variety of patients and runs a busy clinic, which has been a new experience for me. I enjoy getting to meet patients of all ages. I have adapted my skills to meet the specific requirements of our clinic. Coming to work with Dr. Tadje and his team has been a refreshing change. I enjoy working with the tight-knit group and smaller clinic we have created. Many patients have expressed to me that our team-based atmosphere has made an impression on them and has made their experience with us more "comfortable." I am proud to work for an office that values both its patients and employees. I am also appreciative of all the "little" things that Dr. Tadje does to show his appreciation for our staff members and the work that we do.
