Old Tappan Pediatrics


I worked summers here as a secretary. My basic responsibilities include answering phone calls from patients, booking appointments, filing patient records, etc. I also have worked the front desk checking patients into the office, and helped re-organize the entire filing system in July of 2005. I've also created Excel appointment spreadsheets to be used in the event of a computer system failure (which occured for a few days during the summer of 2010) - these were also used to re-organize the appointment program for the fall 2010 schedule.
