Hi!! My name is Heather and I work in the Patient care department as a PCMA (Primary Certified Medical Assistant) float here at Grants Pass Clinic. I have a lot of responsibilities at the clinic and absolutely LOVE what I do! As a float, I get to move from department to department and work wherever I’m needed. I really value my position as a float because I have worked in Internal Medicine East, West, Family practice, Podiatry, Pediatrics, Acute Care and in the Anticoagulation clinic. I have worked as a Primary for every Provider here, and although sometimes challenging, I must say that working for every provider at Grants Pass Clinic has been an amazing experience.
Some of my duties include interacting with patients, taking vital signs, calling in prescriptions, giving vaccinations, ordering x-rays and lab work, triaging phone calls from patients, and scheduling appointments for them if needed, and that’s just the tip on the iceberg!! I can honestly say that working for Grants Pass Clinic has been the best learning experience I have ever had. I have met some of the most genuine and caring people from patients, to co-workers to providers. As a team member of the patient care team, I believe we all work great together!!!!
