Patient Accounts Representative/Receptionist

Hattiesburg Clinic, PA

While employed with Hattiesburg Clinic for the past 8 years I have had a number of responsibilities and have continued to pursue a higher learning of the way a medical facility functions from excellent customer service, to CPT and ICD-9 coding.  I initially started working at HBC as a receptionist and soon after was eager to seek a more demanding position.  I then moved to the Business Operations department where I have worked as a Customer Service Representative, a trainer for new employees as they enter the clinic, and now a Patient Accounts Representative.  My current responsibilities include being a patient advocate, billing and coding charges for patient services, inventory, taking and posting patient payments, and serving as a liaison between patients and insurance companies as a convenience to the patient.

My name is Shammah Burns.  I'm originally from south Louisiana; however, I currently live in Moselle, MS.  I am a very goal oriented and ambitious individual who takes pride in my accomplishments.  I have been employed with Hattiesburg Clinic for 8 years and currently hold the position of a Patient Accounts Representative.  My long term goals include obtaining a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration and then moving forward to pursue a MBA.  In the future, I plan to use the skills attained through my studies to take on a fast paced and demanding administrative or management position.


I enjoy reading on a regular basis.  I also enjoy music, great food, and traveling to new places.
