Describe some of your job duties: I welcome patients to the clinic, check them in for appointments, and update personal information. I collect payments and co-pays. Answer patient questions or direct them to the appropriate person for answers. I assist patients by answering phones, taking messages, and scheduling appointments. I utilize the patient portal to update patient information and schedule appointments. I assist medical staff with the upkeep of patient charts by scanning and retrieving faxes. In addition, I do so much more, as a receptionist I really am quite amazing. ☺
