Category : Resumes Job Wanted

I have had the pleasure of working at an Orthopedic Group of surgeons for 15 years as Referral Coordinator/Back Desk. While working there I have also assisted in many other positions as needed. Prior to that I worked 8 years at a Worker's Compensation medical center as Referral Coordinator/Billing Clerk. I am enthusiastic, positive, helpful, responsible and loyal. I am a bit old school and believe respect is earned and interaction with people in a helpful and positive manner is necessary.
