Monique Wiggins

Medical Assistant

I obtained my Associates degree in Medical Assisting from ASA college in 2009. I joined the office of Dr. Rebecca J. Kurth, M.D. and Dr. Deborah P. Jones, M.D. in September, 2017 as a full time Medical Assistant. I enjoy working with all the patients in our practice, and assisting with the doctors in various aspects of medical testing. I also maintain our office laboratory and make sure our exam rooms are stocked with supplies. My first position after college was at a busy family practice assisting 11 physicians, seeing over 150 patients daily. From 2016 to 2017, I worked at a pediatrics office in Harlem, New York. My duties throughout my career have consisted of venipuncture, administering vaccines, EKGs, urinalysis, assisting in OB/GYN exams, processing labs, Holter monitors, glucose testing, ABIs, spirometry testing, sleep apnea, completing health forms, answering phones, scheduling appointments, training other medical assistants and filing paperwork.

It's been a pleasure serving the patients and going above and beyond to my ability to ensure their medical needs are met.
