Medical assistants are the unsung heroes of the healthcare industry. Without them, doctors and nurses could not provide the quality of care to the number of people they see on a daily basis. Medical assistants handle important tasks like updating patients’ medical charts, taking vitals and even answering phones and scheduling appointments. They are the utility knives of medical facilities that rely on them to keep things running smoothly.
