It is not all-inclusive, and does not indicate there is an opening in that particular area at this time or in a specific location. Please see our list of open positions for current openings at specific Wolfe Eye Clinic locations.
Ophthalmic Technicians are the first clinical staff to have contact with the patient. They begin the examination process by asking questions regarding the patient’s health and eye history. Based on the medical information from the patient and/or referring doctor, they are responsible for performing the appropriate diagnostic pretests. Our technicians also perform measurements crucial to surgical outcomes and screening tests for diseases such as glaucoma. They measure patient’s vision for corrective lenses and document abnormalities in the eye by photography and ultrasound. It is vital that the information that our ophthalmic technicians gather from our patients is accurate and complete so the physician can assess, diagnose and treat the patient.
Nurses play a vital role on our Wolfe Eye Clinic team. They assist our physicians with clinical visits, laser and minor surgical procedures, and surgical scheduling. Our nurses also have the responsibility of coding the patient’s exam; this involves identifying the level of exam and the procedures performed in order to ensure proper processing. They triage patient phone calls and use assessment skills to determine the patient’s needs and the urgency of the situation. Upon physician diagnosis, our nurses do an extensive amount of patient education regarding the patient’s treatment or surgical procedure. They are there to listen and answer any questions that the patient may have so that the patient fully understands his or her course of treatment.
Receptionists have many different responsibilities and duties at the Wolfe Eye Clinic. Perhaps their most important responsibility is to greet the patients as they arrive for their appointments. Upon check-in, the receptionists verify the patient’s personal information and insurance information. They also create new medical records or prepare existing records prior to a patient’s appointment. Our receptionists spend time on the telephone scheduling appointments and making courtesy reminder phone calls. They are constantly communicating with the physicians, nurses, technicians and phone room staff regarding patient and daily schedules so that unnecessary problems and delays can be prevented.
