Helping Multiple Sclerosis Patients in the Midwest

Patti Cernin
Prior Authorization Specialist

This is challenging and rewarding work—made worthwhile when a patient gets the prescribed med they need to alleviate their M.S. symptoms. I enjoy the patient contact & feel grateful & satisfied when I'm able to help them. The Multiple Sclerosis Clinic at SMC has a great team that works together to deliver caring, knowledgeable & comprehensive care to patient's from at least 4 states.

I was interested in pursuing a nursing career in high school and even though I do not have a degree in that field, the work I do in the M.S. Clinic provides me the opportunity to care for people in a different way!

I also appreciate being able to work close to home. Saunders Medical Center is a convenient facility staffed with many caring people working towards the same goal of excellence in patient care.
