Hi All,
I currently work for an internal medicine practice in Glendale, AZ. This is my first CPC position & although I am doing ok, I do find myself running into road blocks & finding trouble finding answers for certain questions from time to time. I realize that this is what the forum is for, but it has not posed to be very helpful, because I either do not get any responses or I can't get them fast enough.

I am looking for a service or a site where I can go to as needed for mentoring during my process with the Internal medicine practice & the specialist I am also responsible for which is Podiatry, Dermatology & Neurology & get a 24-48 hour response.

My ideal situation would be to have 1 person I could develop a mentoring relationship with that I can call or email my questions to, but a website or membership that supports CPC's with their daily scenario's is also good.

Thank you in advance to all of you who respond.

Sincerely,
Dawnel Skinner

mentoring

I wish I had seen your post earlier. The reason I saw it now is because I was looking through the "outpatient" category on this forum. I will be leaving my current job tomorrow and starting a new job on Monday, which will include outpatient coding.
Currently, I am coding for a podiatrist. It has been a very big challenge! I don't have any words of wisdom for you but I just wanted to let you know that I agree with all of your comments and I think your idea for a mentor is a great one. I wish there was something like that. I could use one too.
I think there are services out there that you can purchase, AAPC has a one, but they are all very expensive!!! Who can afford that when you are just starting out as a coder. I would be willing to pay for mentoring services but I can't at the prices companies are currently offering.
Give me an update as to how things are going for you! I'd love to hear from you!

Whenever you have a question, post it in the appropriate open forum and then shoot me a private message with a link to your post so I don't miss it. If I can answer your question I am more than happy to help.

I am looking for a mentor for extra experience with hands-on coding. I will be taking the CPC exam soon , but wish to get a little more knowledge with someone who doesn't mind a lot of questions. I am in the northeastern Kentucky region across from Portsmouth, Ohio. If anyone has the time and patience to teach a old dog a few new tricks, I would really like to hear from you. Will work for experience if need be.

Do you have any knowledge of a mentor in the northeastern Kentucky area? I am across the river from Portsmouth, Ohio.
