Lead Medical Office Administrator
I, Michelle McCarthy, graduated with my Bachelor of Science in Health Care Administration BSHCA in 2016 from University of Phoenix. While going to school full time, I was working full time as well, and taking care of my four children as a single mother. During this course of attending school my children are active in sports football, basketball, and baseball. The key to being able to accomplish and graduate with honor is time management. Once I graduated with my Bachelor of Science in Health Care Administration , I decided that I wanted to continue to pursue my education. I enrolled at Independence University to start my Masters in Healthcare Administration MHA program and graduated in 2019.
I have always had the passion and drive for helping patients and helping make a difference in their lives. I take pride and enjoy what I do . I strive to provide the best care to our patients and employees with Age Rejuvenation. I ask myself every day what I can do to be better than I was yesterday.
I love working with Age Rejuvenation as our staff and Providers are here to help change people’s lives. Our Providers take the time to listen to our patients concerns/issues they are currently experiencing and help to put together a treatment plan so the patients can start to feel better and rejuvenated overall health. I’ve worked in several healthcare organizations and can say this is by far the best due to what we practice and specialize in. Another reason if it was not for Age Rejuvenation I would not have had some health issues as this would not be caught at a primary care provider. We look more in depth in lab work. Age Rejuvenation stands by what we practice Hormone Replacement therapy and Medical Weight Loss and Sexual Health .
I enjoy going to the beach, traveling , spending time with my children and going to watch and support them during their football, baseball, and basketball games. I’m their number one supporter.
