Subject: Administrative Medical Assistant Position

The Chevy Chase Breast Center is directed by Dr. Marie Pennanen and functions
adjacent to Chevy Chase Surgical Associates under the direction of Dr. Thomas
Zorc. With access to the private ambulatory surgical suite, our center offers
out-patient general surgical treatment for patients seeking this option, as
well as minor surgical procedures under local anesthesia. The Breast Center
sees patients for a range of breast concerns, including breast cancer,
general screening for high-risk breast cancer candidates, genetic testing and
other breast concerns. The Breast Center also sees patients for routine
check-ups following surgical intervention or office visits outside of this
plan of treatment.
The administrative assistant side of this role requires working closely with
Dr. Pennanen and her nurse practitioner to organize patient chart
information, including sending reminders to patients due for annual screening
appointments and accounting for breast imaging if necessary. Other tasks
include maintaining an organized patient schedule, preparing general and
local surgery charts, communicating with insurance companies and imaging
centers, and filing patient records.
The Medical Assistant side of this role includes interacting with the Breast
Center surgeons and mid-level providers (our excellent PAs, NPs, and RNs)
with direct patient care spanning from initial consultations to routine
post-operative appointments. The Medical Assistant will also become familiar
with the operation of ultrasound machines and the knowledge of hands on
sterile-technique and sterile processing, minor surgical procedures under
local anesthesia as well as full general anesthesia cases from start to
This position is an integral part to the operation of the Breast Center. The
opportunity to work closely with our team of breast surgeons and specialists
as both an administrative assistant and a medical assistant is an excellent
way to see both sides of managing a medical practice. If this position sounds
of interest to you, please email your resume to - Taylor Kinnucane
