AMI Spotlight : Office Administrator, Egg Harbor Township

The AMI Spotlight is on Pat Smith, Office Administrator of the Egg Harbor Township Office. Pat has been with Atlantic Medical Imaging for 20 years. She began working at AMI in the file room while she was attending the Atlantic City Medical Center School of Radiologic Technology.

As the Office Administrator, Pat's goal is to ensure the office is well staffed and all patients receive the highest level of service and care.  She wants the patients to feel confident that the staff members are knowledgeable and compassionate towards their needs. Pat says that the most rewarding part of being an Office Administrator is being able to help our patients. Sometimes they are faced with devastating health circumstances, and knowing that we can make a difference by accommodating their needs and comforting them during their exam is extremely important.

When she is not working, Pat is the current Scout Master of Troop 126 in Mays Landing. She has been involved with the Boy Scouts since her son was 7 years old. He is now 18, and a newly ranked Eagle Scout. Pat continues to participate because she is able to see her nephew learn and grow as a Boy Scout. Getting to see both my son and my nephew grow into role models is very rewarding.

Camping and traveling are also activities Pat enjoys outside of work. She believes that being a tourist is a fun way to experience a new place.

If you see Pat at your next appointment in EHT, be sure to say hi! Continue to check back for more AMI Spotlight features!

AMI Spotlight: Northfield Staff

The AMI Spotlight introduces you to the staff members of the Northfield office. Many patients visiting this office are claustrophobic and having access to an open MRI machine is very beneficial for them. The staff members here understand the importance of a patient's comfort and will assist them in any way possible.

Denise, an MRI technologist for 34 years, enjoys being able to help the patients through their exam. Knowing a patient is comfortable and confident in her is the most rewarding aspect of being an MRI technologist. 

When she is not at work, Denise enjoys scrap-booking and attending her daughters dance competitions. She also spends time volunteering for several organizations that support her handicapped son. Denise spent many years coaching softball, but now her free time is spent on the beach and taking care of her two dogs, Elle and Boe.

Cindy (left) and Cassandra (right) are the front desk receptionists. Cindy has been working at the front desk for 9 years. Checking patients in for their appointment quickly and efficiently is what Cindy strives for. She is here to answer questions and to do what she can to make your appointment a positive one. 

Cindy spends her free time with family and friends including her husband, three daughters and two cats. She often travels to Penn State where one of her daughters is attending college. During the summer her family enjoys being together for backyard barbecues. 

Cassandra has been a receptionist for 3 years and enjoys working together with her co-workers and interacting with the patients. Making sure the patients leave with a smile is an important part of her job. When she is not working, Cassandra looks forward to getting together with her family for dinners and spending summers at the beach.

Christina is a Patient Account Representative (PAR) which requires her to communicate with the patients, insurance companies and referring physicians to ensure all patients arrive for their appointment with the appropriate forms and pre-certifications. Christina has been a PAR for over 16 years, and finds assisting patients in receiving quality medical care to be the best part of her job. 

Christina enjoys spending time with her family and taking care of her two dogs. On weekends she looks forward to shopping and spending time on the beach in the summer.

AMI Spotlight: Northfield Office

The AMI Spotlight is focused on our Northfield Office. This office is located at 1226 Tilton Road and became part of Atlantic Medical Imaging in August 2014.

Here, patients are able to have an Upright Multi-Positional MRI.  With this unique, three dimensional positioning system, we are able to scan patients sitting, bending, or standing. You simply walk in, sit down, and watch TV during your scan. This open comfort is especially good for people who are claustrophobic.
