Job Description:

Oregon Allergy Associates is looking for an experienced candidate to join their dynamic team of health care providers. The members of this established team pride themselves on outstanding customer service and impacting patients' lives in a positive way.

In this role, you will work closely with your Physician/Advanced Practitioner in a team approach. Patient visits are currently documented using a scribe model which allows for staff members to become much more knowledgeable about the disease processes impacting allergy patients, and the appropriate treatment plans to impact their lives in a positive way. Assistants in this office are very hands on, performing the majority of the in-house procedures for the health care provider.

The ideal candidate will have a positive attitude, working well with patients and coworkers. Will be a team player, willing to fill in where needed and show flexibility during busy times. Take the initiative to see a need and fill it as well as give feedback and suggestions for workflow updates and process improvements.
