Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Westlake, OH – November 4, 2017
Overall a typical day at OAI would start at 8am and end at 4:30pm. We start with opening and stocking all the procedure and exam rooms. Starting all the computers and logging into the portals. After a patient is brought back and their chart is updated to EMR requirements the patient would get prepped for the body part they are being seen for. If the patient is in need of an injection, medical procedure, DME product, etc., the MA would assist. After the appointment is complete we escort the patient to check out. At the end of the day all the rooms are sterilized and injection stations stocked for the next work day. Throughout the day the instruments are washed and the autoclave is ran. I would like to grow personally and professionally.
Family company, worked as a team, dependable
low wages, costly health care due to being a private company
Nice place to work with little advancement opportunity
Front Desk Appointment Scheduler (Current Employee) – Saint Augustine, FL – April 12, 2019
Open the day by greeting providers already in office. Start the computer systems primarily used throughout the day. Print the schedules for the providers who request them. Begin checking in patients at 7:00AM - 4:00PM. Through out the day there is always something unexpected that comes up. Handle these situations with calm and polite. Hardest part of job: Being the go between patients and providers. Insurance changes continually. The most enjoyable part of the day: Patient's health improvement. Patient's laughing and smiling when they graduate.
Health Benefits, Hour lunch break, convenient
Wage does not compete with the cost of living in the area. Little advancement opportunity.
