CPC Experienced remote OBGYN/Midwifery and Orthopedic coder seeking Part time remote

Best answers
I am a Certified Professional Coder through AAPC with a Coding and Billing Specialist Certification through USCI. I am currently seeking a part time remote position and I am willing to code for different specialties. I have experience coding for not only OBGYN/Midwifery and Orthopedics, but also Neonatology, Maternal Fetal Medicine, Urgent Care, Pediatrics, Family Practice, Osteopathic, Chiropractic and Acupuncture, Inpatient and Outpatient, and Same Day Surgery. I am a self-motivated, overachiever who will be an asset to your coding team. The only reason I am seeking a new position is due to family reasons I had to relocate and could only work remotely for my former employer in the State of Oregon. Please reach out to me with any questions you may have and I will be happy to answer back as soon as possible. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
