Meet Amber Montelongo, our newest member of the Medical Assistant team. She’s one of several medical assistants who greets our patients, checks their vitals, and checks them into an exam room for their appointment.
This is her first job in the medical field and she chose pediatric hematology/oncology.
“I know a three year old girl who recently fought cancer. She had cancer for over 1 year. Being involved in her journey has inspired me to work with kids going through the similar path. I feel that we need to be strong for the kids and their families because I know it’s difficult to be strong all this time.”
Amber says, “I hope to make a positive impact on the kids and their families at every visit, trying to make the journey more smoothly.”
One thing you may not know about Amber – she’s a twin and she’s also dating a twin.
