Typical Work Tasks : Presence at the front desk involves answering the business phone and emails, along with scheduling using Google Calendar and Therapy Notes. We have thirteen practitioners all in private practice, so the ability to remember many specific details is required.

The person we seek will also have a strong sense of discretion and will be able to maintain the confidentiality of patient information. This is an occasionally fast-paced office environment, so the ability to remain focused during multitasking situations is essential along with the ability to provide accurate information for the practitioners in the office.

Please indicate first and foremost if you are interested in working 2 ½ days per week, 1 ½ days per week, or 1 day.
