Technician Assistants help the doctors and technicians. Our Technician Assistants are usually the ones that greet you in the lobby and escort you to the exam rooms when you come in for an appointment. They will ask you questions to get a complete history and the reason for your visit and help the doctor during the office call as needed. Behind the scenes they assist in the general functionality of our hospital.
