Patient Coordinator Reviews

What is it like working as a Patient Coordinator?
Patient Coordinator in Fountain Valley:
"Everyday Is A New Day."
Pros: Dealing with plastic surgery comes with very interesting cases and patients. You learn something new everyday and make so many personal connections that it never gets boring!
Cons: There are a lot of steps and responsibilities involved when coordinating surgery for the patient. If you let one thing slip, a whole domino effect will force you to cancel surgery or become a liability to the patient's health or the doctor. So it can be very exhausting and too stressful at times.
