The doctors I worked for were very nice and down to earth. The office staff I worked with were friendly and shared their knowledge. We had lots of fun. The work was interesting and I enjoyed the patients as well.
until renown bought them out...now i would not bother. but im jaded on reown due to my own experience. individual mileage may vary (unlikely). the management is pretty cool, but not very willing to correct employees. tey'd rather just let them go.
Responsible for all eligibility and authorization's required for all office visit's and any testing done in the office. Being that PMA is a specialist office authorization is required on most of everything done in the office and or the sleep center. Most insurance companies today require authorization for special services and knowing which is very important. Verify eligibility on every patient seen is a must as well as knowing what they the patient is responsible for by them at the time of service. Requesting authorization via fax, phone and/or insurance company websites.

Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – June 8, 2014
Working for Pulmonary Medicine Associates was a very rewarding work place. I learned a lot regarding the lungs and sleep apnea as this was a specialty office of the lungs and they did sleep studies. This was a large company and there was chance of advancement. The management was great as were the other co-workers.
Medical Assistant (Temp) (Former Employee) – Roseville, CA – May 30, 2013
In this fast paced office I was always willing to help a patient or lend a helping hand to an employee. I also assisted in rooming patients for the assigned doctor in a timely manner while taking quality vitals. Spirometry’s, six minute walks, EMR system, CPAP system information is only a few of the things I learned at the office.
Talking with patients I scheduled for, helping them in what they needed.
Out Patient Test Scheduler (Former Employee) – Reno, Nv – May 24, 2013
I would schedule some test that was ordered from the day before. Call patients to inform them of their test and schedule their results appointments, and also give them prep information if needed. I have learned to have a lot of patients becasue of the patients and their medical needs, some more than others. My employer was great! I got along great with all of my co-workers. Hardest part of my job was scheduling the patient who was just disgnosed with cancer!! Having fun speaking with the patients and listening to some of their stories they would talk about while i was scheduling their test. Some of the patients had no one to talk to. They were so cute!
