Inside Medical Office Assisting

Medical office assistants help with the administrative tasks involved in treating patients. Assistants in a doctor's office typically interact with patients over the telephone and in person. They modify and examine the records of patients, gather insurance information, bill insurance companies, route phone calls and advise doctors of the reasons for patients' visits. Medical office assistants may assist with a few aspects of the examination process, including taking measurements and vital signs.

Medical office assistants may specialize in administrative or clinical tasks. Those who focus on administrative duties tend to spend their workdays handling the paperwork side of the practice. They may schedule lab work for patients, file records, prepare invoices and schedule patient appointments.
