Chiropractor Office Aid
Employer: Dorais Family Chiropractic
Description of the Organization
Dorais Family Chiropractic is an office located in Midland Michigan and functions in chiropractic health.
Description of the Tasks/Projects Completed
While fulfilling my intern hours, I worked on various projects. I mainly worked as an assistant by taking patients back to the adjusting rooms, filling in their current health and setting them up on traction tables. I also did lots of filing and worked on one huge x-ray filing project. A semester wasn't even enough to finish that job, though.
Skills/Knowledge Gained Through The Experience
I learned a lot about the management of the office, which wasn't what I was expecting. Nevertheless, it will eventually be part of my job if I choose to run my own practice. I learned a lot about insurance and the importance of billing correctly. I also learned a lot about the HIPPA rules - which was the reason I started refiling all the X-rays.
Favorite Part of the Experience
I enjoyed living my dream from a different perspective. This internship just made me more excited for what my future has in store for me. I enjoyed working and bonding with the people who worked there as well as getting to know the patients.
How the Experience Influenced Future Career Goals
I already knew Chiropractic was what I wanted. This experience just made me more excited.
