I arrive to work 20 minutes early, clock in, and prepare for the work day. There are only 3 of us in the office per day. A physician, and another Medical Assistant accompanies me. Once a patient comes in we have them do the appropriate paper work. Then I get them put into DocuTap (EMR) verify the insurance and collect any co payment that may be due at the time of service. The other Medical Assistant and I rotate between the front administration work and clinical. Once a patient is ready in the computer I bring them back, check weight and height and put them into a room. Go in, introduce myself and begin the Chief Complaint, Past Medical History, Medications, Allergies, Surgeries and Procedures, ect. After all that is filled in we begin Vitals. Once everything is complete I instruct the patient that the doctor will be in shortly. Once the physician has gone in and evaluated I assist them with and medication administration, testings (rapid strep, UA, I&D, ect)
The most enjoyable part of my job would have to be either seeing the patient leave happy that they are or will be on the road to recovery or feeling better. Or receiving a call stating that they are doing a lot better and thanking us for our services. Besides I got into health care for a reason, and that is to help others, I am also very fascinated with the human body.
I am a very hard and dedicated worker. I am always looking to excel, and help the company in any way that I can.
