Enjoyed the atmosphere of clinic location and the patients. Liked that we always celebrated birthdays, special occasions or potlucks.
Opportunity to learn new skills.
Typical front office: Greet Pt's. & arrive. Check eligibility, collect
co-pays and print half sheet with Pt. information for provider.
Check out Pts. Schedule any follow-ups.
Register new Pt's, copies, faxes, referrals, prescriptions for pick-up, reminder calls and scrub next days schedule.
My supervisor was great. My lead MA was professional and willing to help at any time.
Learned how to work the front desk and use GECB, program for front desk as well as Allscripts, HIE and CCAH for MA back office
Learned a variety of skills working in a family practice. Typical MA skills such as vitals, vaccinations, EKG, referrals, authorizations and in addition assisted providers with procedures. I was able to us my skills as a phlebotomist more and improved.
Was a busy practice and I was asked regularly to go to many locations because of staff shortage, so flexibility was important.
