I take care of the patients (billing, front desk, phones, appointments, insurance), I do all the cleaning, prepping of rooms and equipment. I help with treatments and do the laundry. I am also head of marketing. (built entire website from the ground up) I do outside marketing, shopping for supplies throughout the office.

Office Manager in Seattle:
"It's not what I thought I'd be doing."
Pros: Honestly, I don't like my job and I don't think most office managers like their jobs. They just do it, because they either never had another interest or had too many interests and didn't know what else to do. It's the kind of job that lands on you, because you aren't making any decisions. I make the best of it and I work hard, so I can make good money at it, but I'm working hard to go into something else, so I never have to do this again.
Cons: It's demanding, boring, tedious, you're under paid and under appreciated. Learn a new trait and do something better.
