Contracting Assistant (Former Employee) – Malvern, PA – September 5, 2017
This was a good place to work however, the job was only a contracted position. I would have liked to have had the option to stay on permanently. I did not learn anything that I already did not know going into this position. Days were long as I was not challenged. My manager was great. The hardest part would be the training aspect. This was done via Skype. So it was a learn as you go through their system.

Service Desk Specialist (Current Employee) – Glen Rock, PA – June 10, 2016
Fresenius is a great company with good pay and benefits. They are willing to work with employees based on their schedules. The company has a wide array of experienced employees in all fields. It is fast paced with constant opportunities to learn new things. It can be challenging when a doctor has a patient waiting and systems need to be fixed right away. When you can assist in fixing these issues it is a good feeling.
Good pay, good benefits, good amount of vacation, good employees
When working with doctors you get a lot of stress due to the urgency of their needs.

Accounts Receivable Representative (Current Employee) – Glen Rock, PA – January 7, 2015
I am responsible for the entire AR process from releasing the charges, verifying insurance, and following up with payments and denials. The hardest part of the job is following up with denials but that is also what keeps the job interesting. I love the people I work with, we keep each other going even when things get challenging. I've learned so much about the billing process while working here and continue to learn every day.
Renal and Endovascular Territory Manager (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – November 3, 2014
I learned how to work with both the clinics and hospitals to satisfy their needs and coordinate with the physician's goals.
Typically I make 8-10 calls per day. 2 Educational programs a week i.e. in service for physician's offices, clinic, hospitals, and dialysis clinics.
Most difficult part is to coexist with 3 stronghold competitors. However, I was able to capture business in markets they were weak in due to distance or quality of care. I capitalized that and grew the Orlando market 300% in 2 years.
I loved the patients we helped and the care we gave.
