Mr. James Henry
Medical Imaging, Inc
987 Main Street
New York, NY 10010
Dear Mr. Henry:
I am applying for the position of Medical Assistant as advertised on Monster.com. My clinical experiences as well as my education make me an excellent fit for this position. I was drawn to the ad because Medical Imaging, Inc stressed the importance of customer service and excellent care for its patients.
I have more than two years of experience working for Hills Hospital in Brooklyn, NY. While working at Hills Hospital, I assisted with patient’s medical intake, including vitals and medical history. I also assisted with billing insurance, scheduling appointments, checking patients in and out and transporting patients to various locations around the hospital. I have attached a copy of my resume which details my qualifications further.
I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to discuss my qualifications and background with you and learn more about the Medical Assistant position. You may contact me by telephone at (212)555-9807 or by email at email@example.com.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
