I decided to write this book because, with over five years of experience as a medical secretary and being in the medical field in various other positions, there were some things I could share with my fellow medical secretaries.

We come into contact with many personalities who think we have the easiest job in the hospital, which you and I know is untrue. But some people think it's the easiest job in the hospital because some of us know how to make this stuff look easy.

So, if you are already a hospital medical secretary or are thinking of becoming one, read on. This book was written for all of you.
