Dear Dr. Howe,
I am responding to your practice’s advertisement for a medical receptionist and believe I would do a great job for you and your patients. I completed a program in medical billing and coding and have worked in a medical office for four years. I understand how to schedule appointments and how to use the electronic medical records software that is common in many offices.
I greet patients as soon as they arrive in the office, treating everyone with courtesy and respect. I take down patient information and answer any questions they might have. I understand that when people aren’t feeling well it is especially important they be treated with kindness and I strive to always present a friendly face.
I have great telephone answering skills and understand how to schedule appointments. I verify insurance coverage prior to appointments and let patients know if their coverage has lapsed. I collect copay payments prior to appointments and help patients schedule their next appointments.
I would be a good choice for a new medical receptionist at your practice. I get along well with others and take direction well. I hope to hear from you soon so we can schedule an interview date and time.

Exploring opportunities within your company is of great interest to me. In response to the notice you put online I would like to apply for the position you have available.

I have grown to have a passion working with people on a daily basis and building a close relationship with the patients. My goal with this position is to grow within the company as well as gain a great deal of experience in the medical field.
I have gained an abundance of professional knowledge throughout the last several years, between my various work experiences as well as my college education. After working for a fast paced medical office for the last two years, I have been taught the fundamentals of patient care, paperwork, charting, managing over twenty five radiologists schedules, working hand in hand with medical offices all over the United States and learning basic knowledge within the radiology department. I believe I have the skills, and abilities to effectively manage the organization of a medical office.
