Surgery Scheduler in Yukon:
"Challenges and rewards ahead."
You will need to be very organized and a self-starter. Have a good relationship with the medical staff. Educate yourself with the speciality of your clinic. Be flexible, patient and kind. The patients are not at their best which is why they are here so you cannot take it personally if they are unkind or impatient. If you think you've heard it all, you haven't. November and December is an extremely busy time so prepare yourself mentally. This can be a really fun job and rewarding as well. What you do is a valuable role. You are an advocate for the patients, their point of contact, so you have an opportunity to built a relationship with them and earn their trust. Even if its' not a part of your job description, you should be familiar with health insurance benefits. Do not ever give medical advice, that is the responsibility of the provider and licensed medical staff. Educate yourself on HIPAA compliance and stick to it.

Surgery Scheduler in Chico:
"ACTUALLY, I WAS VERY EXCITED ABOUT THIS NEW POSITION."
I feel fortunate to have the pleasure of working closely with our previous scheduler. I gained a lot of exposure from her and watched how she juggled the cases while having a positive, happy disposition with the staff from other offices. You are put under enormous amounts of stress because you are trying to accommodate all the physicians and patients. Something I am just now experiencing. I know without a doubt I will shine in the job and make it better than the person before me. My new administrator is adding an additional job to this position, Marketing. I am confident I can be successful in this aspect as well. I'm a total people person and believe in the product I am selling. We really give the greatest experience for our patients.
