Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"As instructors what we want is the best experience possible for our students. For what is on the market (that I have seen) this textbook would be over the edge!"Alice Macomber RN RMA AHI CPI RPT BXOMedical Assisting Program Coordinator/Extern CoordinatorKeiser University-Port Saint Lucie CampusPort Saint Lucie Florida

"I would recommend the text as another option for our Medical Office Administration degree program because there is nothing appropriate at this time to address the program's externship option. Learners in [our] Medical Office Assistant program are not required to perform an externship and this text would be an excellent option for them"Tina M. Williams MSHSA CPCPresident San Francisco Medical Coding InstituteFaculty Heald College SFCSan Francisco California

"I would definitely recommend this text for adoption. It can be utilized as a tool in a Medical Office Simulation Course and as part of a student's externship requirement."June M. Petillo MBA; RMCInstructor - Medical Assisting ProgramManchester Community College & Capitol Community College Manchester and Hartford CT
