Excellent opportunity to learn and provide care to patients.
Patient Representative (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – April 1, 2015
I enjoyed being able to work with the Department Chief of Vascular Surgery as I was able to provide clinical and office support. A typical clinical day would start at seven in the morning with seventy patients on the schedule for one provider. Fast paced clinic where I would manage clinic work flow and direct fellow co-workers on task to be completed and managed time. Scheduled, ambulated, and provided wound care for patients in our San Antonio, Uvalde, and Del Rio clinic locations. Typical day in the back office would entail scheduling post operative, follow-up, and new patients to the clinic. Obtaining medical records, managing incoming and outgoing referrals, scheduling patients at outside facilities for surgical procedures and required testing.
Hardest task would have to be completing everything within a strict time frame, however great satisfaction was obtained as I was able to do so. Being able to get along and create strong relationships with my co-workers made it easier to run a clinic as a whole, an actual team. Having the Department Chief manage my work flow was not easy for others but it was a task that I greatly appreciated.
