You will also prepare patients for in-office procedures such as, x-ray, cast application, brace orthosis fitting, and ultrasound-guided injections. You will also collect blood fluid specimens for testing in the laboratory as part of diagnostic measures to ensure effective treatment of patients.

  • Clean the treatment room to avoid infection and get it ready after use for the treatment of other patients.
  • Create, fill, and prepare patients’ chart with relevant and current information about their health condition, and update the chart with changes and progress in patients’ health.
