Medical billing and consulting services Austin,TX
After 15 years of working for practices and physicians I am looking to break out on my own to offer consulting and/or complete medical billing services to providers in need. I have a vast amount of knowledge in many specialties and would be a great asset to any provider looking to outsource their billing or just needing advise on making their practice more productive and efficient. I have attached my resume below for a description of past positions and specialties I have experience in. Please feel free to contact me.
