When I walked in through the door of the dentist 's office, I was a little bit nervous. I had done my best to blend in with the staff who all wore black scrubs. The front desk receptionist, Priscilla, told me to take a seat and I eased into the cold, black, leather sofa. I fumbled with my fingers nervously as if I was a patient about to get a root canal. Eventually, Frankie, the dental hygienist who I was to shadow, walked in through the door beside the reception desk and lead me to her office.
“Ten Keys to Building Powerful Listening Skills” I believe I avoid interrupting while someone else is speaking. I can’t, say that I have always, had this skill, but it has become valuable, and resourceful. As the book states, not only is it impolite, to interrupt, but you also, miss what the speaker or your boss, is saying when you interrupt.

Today, a medical assistant has asked to speak privately with me, the office manager, about a matter that she is greatly concerned about. She makes an accusation of fraudulent billing that is against one of the medical doctors on staff. The medical assistant alleges that she has noticed recently in the past few months that this particular doctor has repeatedly been upcoding higher evaluation appointment code descriptions for all of his Medicare patients’ appointments. She believes that these visits should have been listed with lower medical description codes for billing purposes. I would thank the medical assistant for coming to me with this information.
One of the experience i have that involved with the retrieval cue should be working as a medical assistant again after 1 year of working at somewhere else and doing different things. I've realize how much stuff that i have forgot after 1 year of not interacting with doing thing that a medical assistant need to do.

We have had several conversations regarding the attitude and behaviors of MD Klimek towards the nursing staff which has not seemed to be improving. This morning I was told by the night RN 's that his negative behavior and disrespect towards ALL staff is escalating. It was told to me that he continues to refuse to see patients in a timely fashion and continues to berate and belittle the RN 's, nurse techs, and unit secretaries. Statements made by MD Klimek that have come to my attention are, calling a RN " a Walmart nurse", "you are all stupid", " I hate this place", "no one here knows what they are doing", " I will see patients when I am ready", only to name a few. Recently, I was told that he repeatedly yelled "I will knock you out!!"

Personal Sacrifices From the moment I was born I was exposed to hospitals and the seemingly scholarly topic of medicine. Features such as bright lights down every hallway, floors so clean that I swore I could see my reflection, and people in white lab coats wandering about intrigued me. Thankfully, I almost never visit hospitals or clinics for more than just an annual physical, but when I need help understanding my body and why it decides to do what it does, it helps to know that I can turn to someone who is educated in that area: Dr. Sieglinde Peterson. Peterson specializes in Family Medicine and currently practices at Fairview Clinics in Chisago City, MN. If you are looking for a quality doctor she is an excellent choice!
As I finished the Batman joke, I saw that the patient still had an unamused face, and it seemed that he held his stomach tighter. I told that joke all week to ease patients, but it only made this child agitated. It was my fifth day at my medical assistant internship, and I was still partially doing my job wrong, but I was able to get all my patients to laugh or smile. As I struggled to place the barometer cuff on the bend of the boy’s elbow and the stethoscope under the cuff, I asked his mother why they came for a visit. " He is coughing again.
