What does a Medical Assistant Certified in Urology do?
A Specialty Certified Medical Assistant in Urology (SCMA-U™) must be detail-oriented as they assist with office endeavors like fielding calls, handling insurance and billing, and making appointments and referrals. Specialty Certified Medical Assistants in Urology check patients' vital statistics, relay doctor's instruction on diet, exercise, and medication, and prepare patients for surgeries, x-rays, and lab work as well as removing bandages and stitches.
