Since I was away from the medical field for over 15 years, I really needed to brush up on my terminology and learn the latest technology that has taken over the medical field while I was gone. I feel much better now to find a job than I did before taking the course. I have never been on online classes before but I readily adapted to it and felt that I was in the classroom with my classmates and teacher.  A lot of the students who were in almost all my classes have reached out and we are friends on Facebook so we can keep in touch. Even some of the teachers asked for me to keep in touch with them. It did take commitment and responsibility to attend the classes every day Monday thru Friday for 5 hours an evening but I was able to stay focused and on task. I found it much easier to manage while working part time than full time but either way if you want something bad enough you will do it. Keep your eye on the prize and dedicate the time to get through your classes as the end result is worth it. I already have prospective offers for jobs after they have seen my resume with Allen School listed. I am in the process of trying for a Collection job through a Medical Placement Agency with another opportunity to do billing. They are looking forward to setting up an interview with me so I can only hope this becomes a full time position. I would be working for a 3rd party entity that works with different Hospitals and Doctors offices in the area. Since it is not a done deal yet, I will keep you posted if I should be hired and if not, I’ll let you know when I do become hired. Right now I am working for another Temp Agency and I have an assignment that ends next week July 29th. I will be ready to find a full time job after that. I look forward to receiving my certificate in 6 weeks and Thank you and your staff for all you have done to get me to this end result.

All the instructors at Allen School have shown their capability in their own special field of education. But my motivator has been Professor Littlejohn. Besides educating her class she makes it so much fun in helping the students be engaged actively in the class. She has a lot of patience in dealing with our different personalities as well as respecting us as individuals – as adults not as children.  She does not belittle us, not even in her tone of voice. I have the utmost respect for her and thank her for acknowledging the diversity in all of us. I hope for be privileged to attend another of her classes. Mrs. Diana Wilson also was very understanding and gave us room to express ourselves during class. Just like a regular school class. Both teachers made me look forward to the next day in class. They helped me not to give up but to stick with the program. Thanks to everyone at Allen School for making it possible to enroll in this program. From the interviewer to the in-take, the technicians & Administrators and everyone who had a part in helping me with my enrollment and participation at the Allen School.

It all started when I made the first call and spoke to Jennifer, the way she spoke made me feel empowered and even more motivated to start school so I knew then this was the school for me, after starting class I hit a really rough time in my life I lost my mother and brother in over a three week period, during this time I wanted to give up, but I informed the school but thanks to Ronnie Banks, Sydney Bradford, my instructors Candace, and Diana, they were all supportive and said I’m almost done with the period of class, that they knew I could do it, that I was strong and yet determined to continue on with school and I didn’t back out of class after that so everyone at Allen School has been there and I’m forever grateful. Thanks Allen School…

Hi, my name is Brittany Schwickert I am a mother of two boys who are 3 and 4.  I also am a caretaker for my papa for about 7 years now who is 91.  He has diabetes, and Alzheimer’s – dementia which can be sometimes difficult to deal with.  I have been a licensed cosmetologist for 14 years.  I love doing hair but with 2 young kids I wanted a more stable career.  I have a lot of family members in the medical field ranging from doctors, nurses, emt, family who has worked in medical records, and also administrative positions.  I was very nervous to start school because I had been out for 14 yrs.  I absolutely LOVE Allen School.  They are always there to help.  They can help anywhere from personal questions, to tech problems, and anything school related.  This environment makes you feel like you have a family who is going through the process with you.  The live classes are awesome you can ask the teacher a question right there and then while your learning or say you have a question after class you may call them or email them and they are always quick to respond.  My class mates have also been a huge support we have a Allen school Facebook page and are constantly conversing with one another.  It’s like one big happy family there helping you through your journey.  Choosing Allen school was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

I am really happy with Allen School. I am glad that I made the right decision to study in this program. At first, I was scared because I didn’t go to school for years. Also, this program was new for me compared with my current career. But I was wrong… I got help from my professors and friends. It made my studies easier than I thought. All of the professors and staff from Allen school would help us (students) anytime we needed. I feel very comfortable asking them questions and I get the answers right back. Allen school has really impacted me both personally and professionally. I could not complain about my professors and classmates. We are a team, very strong team. We helped each other when someone needed a hand; even though, we were studying online. We don’t know each other, but we seemed to know and understand each other very well. I miss my team. I very strongly recommend this program, because it is a good career in medical office field. If you want to be successful in this program then you have to read ahead, go to classes every day, and finish your homework on time because it effects to your grade when you submit the assignments on time. I do not know how to explain to you how I feel, but I know I am really happy. I cannot wait to start my new career. I hope I can get a job as soon as possible, so I can apply my acknowledge to my career. Thanks, Allen School! I really like the school. That is the reason I keep continuing my school to achieve my AS In Medical Billing and Coding program from Allen School.

Good morning! I just wanted to drop by and say that this has been the best experience in continuing my education. I have worked very hard to maintain the good grades that I have been able to maintain. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication. I have made many sacrifices in the past several months to keep school my number one priority. Study, study, study is what I have been doing. I have spent 99% of my time on the computer since starting school in November. It has been the best ride so far and I hope to continue to thrive until the end. Thank you so much for this experience and hope to get into the Associates Program. Have a great day!

I was born and raised in Yuma, AZ. I had been a CNA for 3 years, but I still found myself wanting more. I wanted to be a successful role model for my daughter. The best thing to me was to become a Medical Assistant. However, there were no open doors for me in Yuma. I did not want to be on the waiting list for a school. I then researched many schools in Phoenix but only one in particular caught my attention, The Allen School. So, I decided to move to Phoenix specifically to pursue my goal and attend The Allen School and become a Medical Assistant. However, the decision to move was really tough for me. But, as soon as I walked into The Allen School, I felt at home. From Alicia, the first person you see energetically greeting you in the morning, to the rest of the staff and students, it’s a great place to be. Every person here is really helpful. Currently I am in my 2nd module and I attained a spot on the Honor Roll. I just feel extremely happy to have chosen this school. The teachers here are amazing and they take the time to explain every detail with you so you can understand and pass your exam. This will be my first Graduation ceremony. I will have accomplished a goal in my life thanks to this amazing school. My daughter will be the person I look for in the audience while I receive my M.A Certificate.

“Hi” Fellow students and those soon to be. Realize life is only what you make it. By choosing Allen School of Health and Science you and I have chosen to begin our medical careers or continuing our education to further our career opportunities. For me, this was a large step back and at the same time a leap forward for my future. I have already completed schooling for Billing and coding at another school and was unable to find solid work after completing school. So I have spent the last 7 years providing private care for a verity of people with disabilities. Because of my passion to succeed and help others in ways to improve quality of life, I chose to grow my career. Coming to Allen is the best choice I have made solely on my own with out getting advice from others. I was tired of not being able to provide a solid consistent life for my 3 kids and was tired of the struggle. I knew this was going to be hard work but nothing in life comes easy. I have had many personal issues come about, which challenged me during my time at Allen School. What truly helped me through was staying positive and always willing to help others. The greatest part about  Allen was the consistent acknowledgement and help from everyone such as students, faculty, and administrative team. We are a team/ family at Allen and that is truly important to have when succeeding in school. My greatest accomplishment was receiving student of the module, because that shows how well the faculty truly pay attention and care to recognize the students who give it their all. Even though they can only pick one your still given the credit you earn. I want to say, “Thank you to every one at Allen School.”  One last word that was taught to me by a very special person, “If you believe, you will achieve.”

Testimonial: Jonathan Yanes

Prior to attending the Allen School of Health Sciences, I was a university student who had a lot of anxiety and panic attacks at the end of the semesters because of a previous accident that had interfered with my way of learning. I was hardly able to retain information and I ended with bad grades. I was put down by several people in my life, even in my own family. I was depressed because I felt lonely and could not see the end of the tunnel. It wasn’t until my good friend Rebecca helped me to look for other ways to continue with my career, to not let other people choose who I am in life, but to take matters into my own hands. As I looked for schools I was referred to the Allen School from another college, and as soon as I walked in I felt like this is where I belong. I started to become more excited as I learned about what it is like to be a medical assistant and how truly important we are in the field. I decided that it was time for me to become the better version of myself and not give up. I realized that no one could get in my way but myself and every day I walk into school I am challenged  to expand on my learning, sharpen my skills, and become the best of the best. All teachers make sure that we excel with every student, and I fell in love with the idea of having teachers like the ones I have today, that push me to the limits and beyond to achieve my full potential, and remind me that from the moment I filled that application, it only gets better from here and on.
