Pros: staff is very nice, good, and clean environment
Cons: no health insurance
I have been a medical assistant for about 1 year now. A typical day at the pain management is fast paced job, checking patients in and out of the pain management getting co-pays, checking insurance information, putting patient's in room's, filling out patient's chart information regarding: chief compliant, asking about pain levels, how is there sleep, checking their urine tests from previous month, checking oarrs report, and asking the patient's if there medication is working out ok and getting them ready for 2 pain specialists. The complicated part of the job is calling in patient's for pill counts, and dismissing patient's due to them vilotating the pain contract they signed when they became a new patient. The pleasant part of the job is helping out patient's, and or going out of my way for a patient, so they have a better day than when they came in.
I learned all the pain medication and narcotics that patient's can be prescribed. Both doctors do injections at the pain management, from joint injections, nerve blocks, myoblock and botox injections and trigger point injections. The medical assistant's do matrix: which is consider physical therapy and have Acupunture at the pain management done by an Acupunturist. We do random urine tests done at the workplace to make sure the patient's are taking there medications the doctor's are prescribing them, and not doing anything illegal, or taking anyother medication's the patient's are not prescibed.
