Position Spotlights

Medical Assistant

Medical Assistants are vital members of the FCS team. Their role is to directly assist physicians, nurses and other professionals with various patient care responsibilities.

Some of the daily responsibilities of a Clinical Medical Assistant may include:

  • Assisting doctors in physical exams and minor surgeries
  • Taking patients’ vital signs, height and weight measurements
  • Dressing wounds and administering medications
  • Sterilizing medical instruments and preparing examination rooms
  • Performing EKGs and phlebotomy procedures
  • Other clinical procedures as required by the medical facility
  • A thorough understanding of medical terminology, anatomy and physiology, medical law and ethics and HIPAA regulations is required

Registered Nurse

RNs assist physicians in the care and teaching of patients. These caring professionals have one of the most challenging and rewarding jobs in our field. Nurses have the opportunity to empower our patients and their families with knowledge and the ability to bring understanding and peace during what can be a confusing or challenging time. Nurses are often the first point of contact for patients. Doctors rely heavily on nurses for crucial information about each patient, and their experience and medical knowledge provides the basis of diagnoses and subsequent treatments.

Head Nurse 

In each clinic, our Head Nurse leads the nursing and auxiliary staff in providing holistic, high-quality, safe, reliable and efficient care. Our patients truly respect and appreciate our personal approach.

Financial Counselors

Financial Counselors navigate patients through their treatment journey assisting with insurance related and financial questions.  They provide insurance and benefit verification, obtain authorizations, review payer-specific coverage determinations, investigate financial assistance options and are a dedicated point of contact for each patient. 

Laboratory Professionals

Our laboratory is a CAP accredited, state-of-the-art facility staffed with highly specialized clinical scientists, pathologists and administrative staff to serve the needs of our practice. 

The FCS lab is equipped to provide both technical and professional evaluations of several specimens and laboratory technologies, primarily comprehensive hematopathology. This includes routine clinical lab testing, histology, immunohistochemistry (IHC), in situ hybridization (ISH), flow cytometry, cytogenetics, fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) and Next Generation Sequencing molecular testing.
