I have 5 years experience in the medical billing/coding field. I went to school and received my certificate, and I have been a certified coder with the AAPC since Sept 2004. I also have a Bachelor's of Science in Business Administration. I have recently moved from Florida to Texas and am looking to do some medical billing/coding from home. I have experience in family practice, nephrology, radiology, OBGYN. If you are interested, please contact me at shelbymo2@yahoo.com. Thanks.
