Dear Ms. Dexter:
While searching for a new job in the medical field, I saw your listing for medical assistants posted on ____. I was very happy to realize that there may be an opportunity here for me, as I have ten years of experience in the health field, working directly with patients as a nurse’s aid and more recently as a medical office assistant in Big Town Clinic.
My duties included a variety of tasks that were both administrative and clinical. I helped keep the office running smoothly, maintained and updated patient records and files, handled insurance forms, helped with hospital admissions and arranged for laboratory services. In addition I answered the phone, greeted the patients when they arrived, scheduled appointments and handled billing inquires.
I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have related to my filling your opening for a medical assistant. Please call me at 777-777-7777. I’d be happy to come in to your office or be interviewed by phone. I appreciate your reading my cover letter and considering me for the job you want to fill.
