I received my materials and started the program! In my first sitting, I completed the tabbing, and just finished watching the Color Coding Chart Video.🙌🏼First of all…you all were so right!!! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE MS. ORTEGA AND HER STYLE!!! I am a bit OCD so her methodical way of doing things is right in line with the way I do things! Plus…I love all of her motivational techniques/sayings! 😍I debated on taking the LIVE 3-day course or the online course. 🤔Because I’m “mature” 😉 and my note-taking skills are not as quick as they were when I was younger...I decided upon the online course. Let me say...SO HAPPY I MADE THIS DECISION!!!! I am able to watch Ms. Ortega and take notes...pause, reverse, and listen again to the things that I think are extremely important and worth writing down. Her videos are informative and she adds some humor along the way! 😁 I am able to watch & progress through the course at MY speed! I’m dedicated and have already scheduled my Certification Exam for November, so I know I’ll stay on track and be ready to take (and pass) this exam!I love how Ms. Ortega is helping me LEARN what I need to in order to feel CONFIDENT & prepared with the KNOWLEDGE & SKILLS to not only pass the exam...but be ready to enter the job market in this exciting field! If you’re debating whether to take the online course...just do it!!!! You’ll be happy you did! ~Therese
I got the online course and was given immediate access! Brownie point 1! I got all my exam prep kit materials on the mail and still cant lift my jaw off the ground about how impressed I am with it! Brownie point 2! McA has thought of it all!! Ive never seen anything like it. But the biggest that I've just completed the coding fundamentals module. I'm happy to report that I have already learned more in this one video from Mrs Ortega than I ever did when i was attended the 10 month vocational college..smh!!! cant believe I spent 20k on that school. If you're reading this you need to save yourselves the time and money and get the online from MCA. God I wish I would have found them first! Upward and onward..about to start the integumentary system!
I got the online program on Monday after finding out MCA finally went online! I am waiting on my exam prep kit in the mail but I was given immediate access to the online training videos! I had a ton of things to do on Monday but I went ahead and watched the first video just to get myself motivated before running out of the house to do all my errands. The next thing I know today is day 3 and I still haven't left the house to run my errands because I've been binge watching ever since! Mrs Ortega steals your heart from the very beginning! She's serious and tough one minute then gets playful and fun the next. She'll get after you and call you out on something but then she totally gets away with it because you know she has your best interest at heart. I felt a duty to report on this program because I have a double master's degree and I have never witnessed a teacher like her. My years of college were 100 percent in the classroom and none of my professors had her energy and fire. But the shocking thing is that all this passion just keeps slapping you in the face and you're not even in the classroom with her! How does she make all of this come across in a video???!!! Its an online program yet she still commands your attention but and keeps it too. Its wild! Thank you teacher and thank you MCA. I only wish you would have gone online 3 years ago because I have ordered 3 different online programs including the one from aapc and MCA puts every last one of them to shame. I just finished the integumentary system and I went from hating that subject to loving it! I'll try my best to keep you all posted!
Oh my God! I've never been able to afford to travel to take MrsOrtegas 3 day class but then i saw she took her course on line! I bought it 5 days ago and I'm beyond hooked!! I was one of the unfortunate people who got talked into the aapc online course last year and it was a total nightmare...confusing and highly frustrating!!! But in taking the MCA online course, I'm just so thrilled!!! i broke into tears just watching the very first video because I already knew I had done the right thing. I was immediately addicted! When I say theres something real special about Mrs Ortega I mean it tenfold!!! You can see right away in her passionate way of teaching that this is no job to her but her purpose...her calling!! Her way of simplifying all of the difficult guidelines are are unreal. I have watched so many educators on YouTube but nooone holds a candle to this woman...nobody!!! Not only are you "sucked in" to her teachings but she is so inspiring along the way and when you least expect it she makes you fall off your chair laughing!!! Shes just amazing to watch and her voice is heavenly! She basically does all the hard work for you and spoon feeds us. Indeed this lady truly is the Mother of Coders. Thank you for being a one of kind teacher ..this industry needed you and we are all blessed through you. I will be posting as I get further into the course.P.s. the Take home test prep kit is head over heals genius! Everything you will possibly need besides the online teachings are contained in the kit. I literally threw away every other study guide I ever had...I'm just in shock over this second to none online experience theres no other word for it.
I just attended Mrs. Ortega’s 3-day coding boot camp class this past weekend and I must say it was worth it!!! She is talented, smart, blessed and highly favored! I learned so much this past weekend and everything made more sense after she taught it. She gives you everything you need and holds nothing back. She makes it so simple and gives you the confidence you need to pass the exam. She is truly a gem and I love that she loves God and shows it! She is truly passionate about her students and about medical coding. She is the Queen of Medical Coding!!! I advise everyone to take her course because you won’t be disappointed. Thank you Mrs. Ortega for sharing your gifts with us. It was truly an honor to meet you and be taught by you! 🙂
I highly recommend Medical Coding Academy to anyone who wants to become a REAL medical coding professional and deeply understand coding in the REAL world. Medical Coding Course with Mrs. Ortega in Atlanta was an awesome experience that literally changed my life! Mrs. Ortega is an amazing and gifted teacher with extremely high professional and ethical standards. She made the most difficult topics clear and easy for understanding. I feel that it was the best investment in my future career and I am excited to continue education with Medical Coding Academy. Thank you Mrs. Ortega for your wonderful teaching style and dedication!!
I took the 3 Day course this past weekend and my mind was blown. Mrs. Ortega breaks the test down for you into the best course for someone who has no experience. I have been researching the courses for years, and this is the best. I would recommend this course for anyone. Thanks MCA and Mrs. Ortega you rock and I'm a rockstar!!!!!!!
Melanie Fretwell Thompson
Just finished up the 3 day CPT in Atlanta and wow what an experience! Mrs. Ortega knows her stuff and is passionate about her mission of leading people to a better career. Her Faith In God was evident in the class as well and that spoke volumes to me. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and equipping me with the skills I need to be successful in coding.

I attended Mrs. Ortega's class. This is a whole new carreer objective for me and I was terrified. From the time I entered the class untill I passed my course, and after, I have felt that my success was the highest priority. The caring staff at the academy from the initial phone call to the completion of the class could not have been any more through and professional. I have had 30 plus years in management and a staff like this is what makes any company a success. I want to Thank Ms. Ortega and Medical Coding Academy for making this whole process painless and I look forward to taking my next class with them. If you ate looking to make a change with nothing but a positive experience I completely recommend Medical Coding Academy and Ms. Ortega.
I took this course and I must say if you want to learn coding take this 3 day course. Mrs. Ortega and her staff are amazing the class is intense but you will learn what you need to and to keep it moving!
I learned so much in boot camp. I have told everyone and anyone I know who is trying to figure out their next step to take this course.
Mrs. Ortega is awesome!! I took the 3 day course in Dallas in May and I took my exam a week ago and I PASSED!!!! The class is not a joke, she is tough but if you put in the time you will pass!! I am already looking into taking another course by her!!!
I was hesitant to take this course but am so dang happy I did! Went to the Dallas class mid-May and it was amazing. I have an extensive Ophthalmic background, with a small amount of coding knowledge, but nothing like what I learned. 3 days packed full of learning from Miss Ortega, who is a fountain of information. Long days and nights to ensure you have all you need to pass your test and start a new career. If you don’t want to work hard for 3 days I would suggest taking a college course for 18 months instead. I took my test on June 1st and PASSED!!!!!!! Now working on my resume and the rest of my workbook that we were given. A humongous thanks to Miss Ortega and the crew. I couldn’t have done it without you❣️❣️
Mrs. Ortega is a awesome instructor. I took the 3 day course 4/26 - 4/28/19 and took my CPC exam 5/18/19. I'm happy to say I passed on the 1st try and I didn't have any coding knowledge prior to the 3 day course. I highly recommend Medical Coding Academy.....
I took the 3day Medical Coding Course with Mrs. Ortega and it was a great learning experience, it is a lot of work but it is worth it. I received today the results of my AAPC test and I PASSED!!! on my first try!!! Thank you Mrs. Ortega for being such an amazing teacher!!!
Mrs. Ortega is an awesome teacher. I just finished my 3-day course and although it was a big sacrifice for 3 days it was well worth it. I recommend this class for anybody of any age and of any educational background. You will succeed. Now I'm ready to take my test and pass and be a professional coder. Thanks Mrs. Ortega and thank you to the wonderful assistants.

No Medical Experience I recently attended MCA’s 3-day Pre-Exam Medical Coding workshop with my husband (5/17-5/19) .... and let me tell you, Mrs. Ortega is like NO OTHER!! She takes her love of teaching very seriously and puts her ALL into her students. She applies the pressure to ensure you’re prepared for the exam and a successful coding career. She’s very thorough giving you the tools you need to pass the exam, getting the job, interviewing, and your new coding career. During the prep exam workshop she is not the angel you see on youtube. She is this little petite Drill Sergeant who will put the fire under your feet!! The class is very intense, very fast paced, and can be overwhelming if you don’t do ALL of your pre-work. However when the 3 days are over its a big relief because you will be able maneuver through your books, follow instructions, find and understand the correct answers. Her curriculum and teaching strategy makes it fun & easy to find the codes, without needing to MEMORIZE thousands of terminology or anatomy terms. Mrs Ortega was heaven sent! If you’re looking for a teacher to teach you the basics of coding and how to pass the CPC medical coding exam with ZERO coding experience... Then Look no further Mrs. Ortega and her team are IT!! Me & the hubby are scheduled to take the AAPC exam May 25th... I’ll be back to let y’all know we passed!!!! Thank you again Mrs. Ortega and Staff! May god continue to bless and protect you from the naysayers. Your energy and heart is so pure. Continue to stay on your path blessing the world with your knowledge. The world will eventually catch on! “Keep It Moving”
Just finished the 3-day Medical Coding course with Mrs. Ortega May 17-19 and her teaching is phenomenal! I've taken two other coding courses over the years and got nothing close to what she had to offer. Her teaching was great, her staff was wonderful and I left filled so much knowledge and confidence! Her exactly what I needed!
Darcy Carbajal Solis
A Power House Teacher!!! Thanks to Mrs. Ortega and the 3 day course I am Eager to take the exam and this time I am so confident about it- I couldn’t say that before. She has so much knowledge and cares for her students. The pre-work and after class homework totally worth the time and effort. I am that person that earned the 2 year Associates Medical Billing and Coding Degree/ Summa Cum Laude. Took the board exam twice and failed. Through the university I learned countless office and AHIMA’s policies but no coding or exam prep. I am still paying the school’s debt and no medical billing and coding certifications yet. I wish I had known of MCA’s courses and save me time and money. I can’t wait to test and post an update. A big shout out to the MCA team as well Mrs. Landers, Mrs. Underwood, Mrs. Newbbie and Mrs. Belen were all so kind and helpful.
Everyone who wants to learn coding from the gound up should do this 3 day class!!!I just took the class this pass weekend and it was a life changing moment for me. Mrs. Ortega is the best teacher!!! Now the 3 day course is intense but so well worth it at the end!!! I cannot wait to pass my test on the first try and keep it moving to gain my alphabet soup behind my name!!! Thanks to the whole entire staff at MCA!!!
My wife and I recently took the MCA, CPC 3 day course in Dallas. We traveled all the way from Atlanta to attend this phenomenal event. When I tell you that this was one of the best investments of our money and time, I am not exaggerating!! Mrs. Ortega and her wonderful team of Belen, Angelica, Ladonna and Susan were beyond great. Words cannot express the feeling we have for them. I will not lie, the 3 days are challenging but so worth it! I am more than confident that my wife and I are overly prepared to take the CPC that we are scheduled for this upcoming Saturday, and we will pass it the first time!!! The energy of the class and the staff is so loving and helpful and inspiring. It’s like the family you didn’t know you had. If you are new in the industry or struggling to pass your CPC certification, YOU NEED TO BE HERE! You will not regret it. I will definitely be back for my COC, CRC, CPMA and the rest of the “alphabet soup”.Keep it moving!!!!
Update: I took my CPC exam on June 8th and passed with a score of 82😁 Mrs. Ortega’s class is most definitely worth the investment. Do exactly what she says! She gives the absolute best strategy to pass the test! Thank you MCA🥰Just finished the 3 day course with Mrs.Ortega! It was fast and intense, but totally worth it. Mrs.Ortega is the best teacher I’ve ever had! She also has some amazing awesome assistants! I can’t wait to take my test and pass! Thank you American Coding Academy!
This class is a must for anyone wanting to be a medical coder. Mrs. Ortega and her staff are amazing!
Diann Wisener West
Mrs. Ortega is Awesome! I have struggled with test taking in my past due to learning disabilities; however, her style of teaching made it easy for me to understand. Whatever you do, take the time and money to invest in YOURSELF and take the 3 day class. You will not be disappointed! She has a true passion for this industry and loves to see her students be successful. You will truly be blessed from learning from her and her team.Keep it Moving!
I just finished my three day boot camp for CPC and I know I’m ready for my board exam. I cant say enough about this school or Mrs. Ortega to show how much I appreciate the time and effort they put into teaching their students. I look forward to taking another coding course with them, and I already told my daughter she had to take the class when Mrs. Ortega was back in Georgia. Mrs. Ortega has been blessed with a gift that should NOT be taken for granted.
I just finished my 3 day course in Dallas this weekend. I was extremely nervous at first because I have no coding experience but Ms Ortega is amazing at teaching and I am in shock of how confident I am about passing my test on June 8th. She pours her heart and soul into all of it and I am forever grateful for her. This weekend was life changing for me and my family. Thank you Ms Ortega for everything!
My name is Vontreal Daye and I took this class this weekend May 17th... I was so nervous about what to expect. Nervous about if I would learn anything, but more than anything else nervous about if it was a fraud!!! The teacher Mrs. Ortega is AMAZING AND EXCELLENT AT WHAT SHE DOES! I am so excited about this board exam and passing it. Because I will on June 1, 2019. I want to say thank you so much for your teaching and your wonderful spirit Mrs. Ortega! This weekend was hard, but so worth it!
Mrs Ortega is a walking encyclopedia of medical coding knowledge. I attended her 3 day course in Orlando and it was intense. For the record I had no prior knowledge of this field. However after Mrs Ortega's class I feel I have a fighting chance of passing my CPC certification exam. Trust me the 3 day course is your best option. Mrs Ortega's teaching system is so on point it seems like she's pouring the information into your brain. you just need to pay attention and take notes. She really feels like your success is her success. Remember to complete your prework.
great money great money great money

I researched many different programs since I do not have any experience or know anyone currently in this field. I chose the 3 day course with Mrs. Ortega and after completing the course I feel very confident in what I have learned. I appreciated her teaching style and willingness to help everyone. I have been raising kids for the last 19 years and have not been in a learning environment for many, many years so I was not very confident in my abilities to be able to absorb so much information in a short time but decided on day 2 to go ahead and sign up for the exam in 3 weeks because it was all clicking and making sense. Thank you Mrs. Ortega for your time, patience and caring for your students. Update 4/29/2019 - Passed my CPC exam
I did the 3 day course in Orlando this past weekend and it was life changing. I have had the goal of wanting to be coder for 2 years and currently in the medical field. I have tried classes with the AAPC and that didn't work. Then I did a class online with Penn Foster. It wasn't teaching me what I needed to know. As single mom I was desperate for change and even having experience in the medical field I wanted and need more. I came across a comment in facebook Group from the AAPC how this lady went to MCA. And she accomplished 3 credentials in 6 months. I was like no way. I read Mrs. Oretega reviews and watched her Youtube videos. All of them. I was like there is not one bad comment. I jump out in faith paid for class pack my bags and got to the next class. Which was Orlando Florida on 04/26/19. Mrs. Oretega is the most passionate teacher I have ever met in my entire life being 33 years old. She is straight to the point and she pushed me. She taught me discipline which is hard to do being a single mother and living everyday life. Words can't express how much I am grateful for the 3 day course. I couldn't have made a better sacrifice for my family and I. I know I will pass my CPC exam. This review is not even enough to express my experience. I pray you choose MCA and keep it moving to success. Thank you so much Mrs. Oretega and I pray God gives you what you gave me and more.
Medical Coding Academy has been the best decision I've made regarding my career change! The confidence Ms. Ortega instilled in her 3 day Orlando class is indescribable!! She has a passion for teaching that I've never seen before! My only regret is that I didn't attend sooner!!!!
Mrs Ortega is the real deal... For the last couple of months I have been wanting to change my career. I always knew I wanted to do medical coding but didn’t want to spent all this money and all these months going to school when life is just so busy already . I did a lot of research on different schools in my area and even online classes but I kept getting disappointed with what I was seeing .. So one night, literally one week before Mrs Ortega was to held her 3 day course in Orlando I stumbled upon her program. After reading all the wonderful reviews and seeing her YouTube videos something inside of me told me to go for it and sign up! And boy I’m so glad I listened.. Mrs Ortega teaches with passion , she puts her whole heart into what she does... She lights a fire in you to go after the alphabet soup and have more credentials to your name.. Mrs Ortega is a leader , a strong women , your biggest cheerleader and your teacher ... Trust me you are going to be a believer the minute you meet her.
Phenominal course and instructor. Full of knowledge and insight, an excellent course and experience.
Mrs. Ortega is so sweet and kind! She truly cares about every one of her students. If you do your pre-work, you will do great in class! No doubt this is hard work but so worth it to invest in your future!!! Don’t look any further if you’re looking for your certs. MCA is the way to go ❤️
Mrs Ortega is THE MOST AMAZING instructor I have ever had the opportunity to learn from both personally and professionally 😊😊Her approach to a very challenging subject is SPOT ON!!Worth EVERY MINUTE & DOLLAR INVESTED IN MY FUTURE!!Thank you just doesn't seem enough. Blessings to her in all of her endeavours.
This class is one of the best classes I have ever had, Mrs Ortega makes everything so easy, it's like she gives u the pieces of a puzzle and helps you put it together its mind blowing. She goes far and beyond to break down every single lesson, I first I had doubt of how can I learn everything in 3 days but she makes it possible. It's no vacation it is alot of work but if u are willing to put the effort she will guide you through it. All you have to do is do everything she says and you will be able to past the test n become a coder, I give her 5 star because there is no more stars. I really recommend this class for anybody who is insterested in pursuing a new career.
I just passed my CPC test on my first try and I couldn’t have done it without Ms. Ortega. I debated for a long time and I can say I don’t regret my decision at all. I was promised that through this 3-day course I will pass my CPC test and that is exactly what I got. The course is not a joke, it takes a lot of determination with less sleep. Ms. Ortega is compassionate and such a beautiful human being, but she can also be a beast in this 3-day course. She will do what it takes for you to pass that test. I will truly treasure the experience I had during this course, and the love that was given to me by Ms. Ortega. Take a leap of faith and you’ll soar through the test!
I recently attended Mrs. Ortega’s 3-day workshop and then took and passed the AAPC CPC Medical Coding exam 6 days later. It was my first attempt.Previously, I had taken an online course and afterwards hired a private teacher. Neither helped me to understand coding or prepare for the exam. I wasted 18+ months and thousands of dollars with only confusion and frustration to show for it. MCA was my last attempt…my Hail Mary!Mrs. Ortega takes her role as your teacher very seriously and puts a lot of pressure on herself to prepare you for a successful coding career. She’s prepping you for the workshop, the exam, job interviews, and your new coding career. During the workshop she is your Drill Sergeant not your Zen Yoga teacher. It’s fast paced, intense, overwhelming, and a relief to finally have some solid instructions that you can follow and understand. I needed a teacher who could teach me the basics of coding and how to pass the CPC medical coding exam. Mrs. Ortega took a very large complex set of instructions, rules, guidelines, etc. and organized them in a way that made it easy to get to the codes and sequences that I needed (and understand how I got there). All without feeling the need to MEMORIZE thousands of bits of information (whew).Mrs. Ortega’s curriculum and strategies work if you follow her instructions and I have a brand new shiny AAPC CPC certification to prove it. Thank you Mrs. Ortega, I hope that you continue to persevere in spite of the mounting obstacles placed in your path. I pray God continues to bless and protect you!!!With deepest gratitude,Dejah
I took this class March 28-30 & my experience was Amazing. I didnt know anything about coding before I took this class & I passed on my first try. You're in great hands. Mrs.Ortega will teach you everything you need to know plus more. Just trust the process.
Ana Carolina Cabral Guillen
I took Ms. Ortega's 3-day Boot Camp mid-March in Dallas because I'd heard great things about it and of course, I was eager to pass my CPC exam on my first try. Well, let me tell you... the course is a real Boot Camp!! It's very intense and you really have to work hard, sleep very little and pay attention to everything Ms. Ortega says... in the end, you'll feel tired, but it will all be worth it!! I took my test last Saturday and today I got the awesome news that I passed the test on my first try with a score of 87%!!! I'm sure that without Ms. Ortega's teachings, I would've gotten lost in all the confusing terminology, double and triple guessing myself after each answer and would've never finished the test!! We all know some cases can be extremely confusing, but with Ms. Ortega's strategies, you'll be able to abstract the most important information and answer fast and accurately in order to "keep it going" and finish the test with enough correct answers to pass on your first try!! I had no previous coding experience and I just did!! Thank you, Ms. Ortega!! I sure hope to come back for more of your teachings to obtain more certifications!
It took me a while to do this because I wanted this review to be as complete as possible. I took my 3 day course in Dallas March 15-17 and it was such a great experience but it was definitely a time consuming process and a lot of information. I come from a different perspective because I never doubted this program or its intentions. I have learned to follow my instincts and I am truly happy I didn’t second guess this one because I took my exam 3 weeks after taking the course and I passed ON THE FIRST TRY and I got a 90%!!!! With so many positive reviews of this program I will put it out there that you get out of life what you put into it so don’t approach this program or the wonderful people behind it with negativity and expect to get a positive result🙏🏼you are only as blessed as you allow yourself to be and this program will definitely have you counting those blessings once you pass that exam! Peace and love ☺️

I attended her 3-day course and Mrs. Ortega has an undeniable passion to deliver and execute the information needed to ensure you pass your boards. I have spoken to a couple attendees from my class who have taken their CPC exam already and have stated that her strategies and tips WORK!! This 3-day course is brutal, starting with the pre-work all the way to the end of the 3rd day. How bad do YOU want it? You will get out of this as much as you put forth. If you are "IN", so is Mrs. Ortega! Utilize her wealth of knowledge to the fullest and LISTEN to what she teaches. She's a "tough cookie" but you have to be in order to deliver the amount of information taught in this course. She goes go out of her way to ensure everyone understands the concepts. I cannot WAIT to take my exam Saturday with a passing grade the FIRST time! 😉
Listen! Mrs. Ortega will light a fire in you and keep it burning! I've never been so motivated and excited to code after having taken the course with her. You feel pumped and ready to take it to the next level. I was ready to enroll in the next credentialing course as soon as I finished CPC with her. She knows this stuff and genuinely cares for her students. I like her spirit and her overall approach. Don't enroll if you're here to joke around....wrong class!! I can't stop talking about how great she is. She gives you what you need plus more. God has truly blessed her and she is being a blessing to her students. If you had ever considered enrolling for coding....this is it! Thank you Mrs. Ortega!
The best highlight is the Teacher, Mrs. Ortegashe is full of energy and she knows Coding!! So if you need help to pass your coding exams or understanding the guidelines this is where to go. Mrs. Ortega offers a 3 day course and it is intense but I have a better understanding and knowledge of what I need to pass my test and keep going up the ladder to complete other Certifications!!So to all Medical Coders Medical Coding Academy is the place to go!!
There are no words to describe this class other than AMAZING! I left with a renewed spirit and not only the confidence that I can pass this exam and will on the first try, but that I have truly taken the first steps in altering my life for the better. Mrs Ortega has such a humble & sweet spirit and really gives her all in these 3 days. The course was tough, you’re definitely pushed and challenged, but it’s well worth it in the end. I wasn’t sure what to expect but Mrs. Ortega will have you leaving on that 3rd day feeling well prepared. I can tell that all she does is truly out of LOVE! You can tell she loves what she does, loves to serve others & is truly gifted and anointed! I’m already looking forward to completely the next credential course with her. I would highly recommend (and already have to some family members) to take this course it truly is life changing!
Mrs. Ortega was extremely knowledgeable and very clear on what she was teaching on the CPC three day course. Training was clear, detailed, interesting and informative. She did an excellent job in presenting examples on coding, which were very relevant and she made the code very understandable. She is an excellent teacher and cares that all of her students learn the material. I would recommend anyone who is interest in furthering their career with coding credentials. I was very impressed with Mrs. Ortega teaching methods. Mrs. Ortega was extremely professional and pleasant to learn from.
If you’re interested in becoming a coder, see Mrs.Ortega. In the beginning, I was just like the rest of you who’s reading this. My thoughts were ‘this can’t be real, there’s no way you can become a coder from taking a class in 3 days & knowing anything you were taught’. I mean to go from having community colleges have a requirement of you taking 6-8 weeks worth of courses to become a coder to an academy that’s just 3 days, it’s inevitable to think you can’t become a coder within 3 days. Well guess what?! Mrs Ortega proved myself & the 40+ others that took the 3 day class with me in ATL wrong. She’s such an amazing person and teacher. She’s literally dedicated to her students. If we didn’t understand something, she went over it until we did; & if you were just one of the ones who still just couldn’t understand it, she took the time to give you one on one time to make sure you understood. Due to the current situation of not being able to take the test the next day after, you have to schedule them 1,2, or 3 weeks from the class dates or whenever AACP have test dates available, but please do not fret, you leave her class very well prepared with studying assignments to keep everything fresh. Get out of that space of fear people & see Mrs Ortega, I promise that you will not regret it. Best teacher I’ve had in awhile. Thank you Mrs Ortega, I wish you the absolute best & nothing but elevation for YOU & your COMPANY. I see nothing but good coming your way. XOXO. Raychelle 🙂
The 3 day class is AWESOME!! Mrs. Ortega is an angel sent from heaven and this class is a true blessing. I’ve been trying to find a career that I was going to be happy in because my current career just wasn’t cutting it anymore. A friend recommended me to the MCA and I made the sacrifices and did what I needed to do to get to the class and let me tell you it was WORTH IT! Mrs. Ortega made me 100% positive that coding was a career I was going to love. I highly recommend going to the MCA. Be sure you do the prework they send before class and you’ll be golden! 6/5 do recommend.
Awesome Class! I took this class over the weekend in Atlanta, and it was by far one of my best decisions ever. Even though the class was intense, it was filled with knowledge and life lessons. I must say Mrs.Ortega over exceeded my expectations and I'm very confident that I will pass my test. Thanks again
Mrs. Ortega's class was no other class I have EVER taken. I admit I was very skeptical of the 3 day CPC course just knowing how difficult the exam is. I searched over reviews and researched it thoroughly and decided to take a chance on her course. Oh my gosh!! Amazing class, amazing instructor, amazing customer service!! I give Mrs. Ortega 5 stars and I intend to take her other courses! Thank you so much Mrs. Ortega, and staff, for your expertise, hard work, and for your guidance with everything. God bless your future as an Academy.
anyone interested in coding should absolutely attend MCA..the time spent was very well worth it. So excited about what I've learned I can't wait to take the CPC in 2 weeks and I'm absolutely sure I will pass after allowing Mrs Ortega to teach me everything she knows about coding. Mrs Ortega is very caring about her students she takes time to make sure everyone understands all things coding. Yes without a doubt she is the best. Love me some Mrs Ortega ❤️😁
I attended the 3 day course in Atlanta ga over the weekend and I learned more in the 3 days than at the college I went to for medical coding.Ms Ortega is really a blessing and I will see her in Dallas for my next certification!❤️❤️
I just completed the 3 day course today and I highly recommend this course I’m still excited because Mrs. Ortega is amazing she is truly a gift from God I promise you won’t regret taking this course from her she honestly has an amazing gift so I’m going to definitely spread the word I’m so thankful for your time and sacrifice Mrs. Ortega keep following God’s word and I will surely see you again soon for more credentials 🤗 again thanks
Mrs Ortega prepares all her students. She is determined to HELP everyone better themselves. You will definitely be ready for the coding test.
Mrs. Ortega is the bomb!!!!! I can not believe how much her teaching as helped me!! I was skeptical coming into the class but after the 3 day boot camp I feel confident about the test. Mrs. Ortega is an enthusiastic and compassionate teacher. She cares deeply that her students pass the test and have the opportunity for a career in medical coding. If you are on the fence about wether or not to take this class, just do it!!! You will not regret it!!! Thank you Mrs.Ortega!!!Update 5-1-19: I passed on the first try!!! 84%!!!This class is awesome!!!!!

What an experience the 3 day CPC course was! We learned so much in such a short amount of time and it was all thanks to Mrs. Ortega! She is a dedicated teacher that genuinely cares about her students, which was obvious from the moment we stepped in the door. I can’t say enough about her awesome teaching skills. I’m so thankful for her and MCA for opening the doors to a new and rewarding career!
Hearing real life stories of people that where able to accomplish passing the CPC exam on the 1st try with no prior experience or knowledge as a coder. I made me a believer..Teacher and Staff are patient and will take the time to make sure you understand
My wife took Mrs Ortega’s 3 day CPC over the weekend. She does not have Facebook but insisted on leaving a review- She can’t stop talking about how much she learned and how it was such a positive experience. The whole staff at Medical Coding Academy was outstanding, they truly care about your progress and succeeding in the industry. If you try anything, go for Mrs Ortega! You will NOT be disappointed- be ready to learn!Update- she passed her test the first time with an 87!!!

THANK GOD I found this course. I recently decided to turn to medical coding for my career path instead of what I have been planning since I was a freshman in high school. Once I made this career path change, I was OVERWHELMED by what I was finding online about the career field: NOTHING. I found all these (basically bogus) schools online (I needed an online school because I still am enrolled as a part time student at my community college and work full time). I didn’t know which test to go with: AAPC, AHIMA, NHA. It was mortifying that I had no help online figuring out what to do. One day I just decided to search medical coding on Facebook to see reviews on which schools were actually preparing people to pass one of the tests. I found MCA and the reviews about Mrs. Ortega were phenomenal so I slept on it and prayed about it and read about her faithful curriculum and decided I was going to do it. I attended her 3 day course. What to expect: HARD CORE, SLEEP DEPRIVED, LONG HOUR COURSE. But what you get from this short term and rigorous experience is an intriguing and influential guidance in order to pass the CPC. Although tiresome and overwhelming at times, the staff and Mrs. Ortega are so supportive and helpful to understand the work. DO THE PREWORK!!!! Take 6 minute bathroom breaks and be ready to buckle down because teaching is what Mrs. Ortega is ready for with God’s presence and it is the best/worst experience you will have. GREAT JOB MCA!!!!! I’m taking my test in 6 days and am excited to see how I do!UPDATE: I PASSED! 80%!!! Everything Mrs. Ortega tells you to do helps you to pass the test! So happy & I will defiantly be taking the CPB class here in a couple months with her! AMAZING TEACHER & CURRICULUM!!!!
Great class! Great Teacher! I am ready for my exam and ready to begin my new career!! Thank you Medical Coding Academy!!
Medical Coding Academy is the place to go in your looking to get into the medical field!!

Oh yeah, and if you have watched any of the videos on you tube Mrs Ortega is just like what you see, she is Real! She cares for you and wants you to do well you can feel her passion. And Best of all she is God fearing!gotta love it. ❤
I highly recommend THIS course with THIS instructor...Mrs Ortega!!! Do not waste your time or money going ANYWHERE else! I can assure you that if you decide to take the course any other school you WILL NOT be prepared. I tried it and learned nothing! I just finished the 3 day boot camp with Mrs Ortega and let me tell you, I am FINALLY ready to take the CPC board exam! She is a GIFT and she truly has a heart to help you succeed and pass this exam. It was worth EVERY penny spend and I am already preparing to take the next class for my next certification. I met some wonderful people this weekend, all with the same passion to become certified Medical Coders. Mrs. Ortega has done her job very well!!!!!!!!! I will forever be grateful to you for all the time that you and your staff put into making this happen and providing this course for us. This is NOT A JOKE. IT IS NOT A SCAM. This is a GAME/LIFE CHANGER!!
I was soooo nervous about getting through this course, I am an older lady and didnt think I would be able to keep up.it was a huge challenge for me but with the wonderful people they have there to help, I was able to keep up.Mrs. Ortega, you are a wonderful testimony for Christ. Thank you for sharing you stories and your belief, thank you, for your giving heart.I will pray for you and your academy, thatyou will persevere with your future challenges. Ms. A Martinez, I thank you for all the extra time you spent with me. Hope to see you both again soon.Kristen
Mrs. Ortega and her team are uh-mazing! I had many reservations when it came to taking a class with Medical Coding Academy but after my first 3-Day CPC class, I am happy I took the challenge. It is A LOT of work over the three days but worth it. I feel incredibly prepared for my board exam and for "real world" coding. I most definitely would not pass without MCA and I look forward to CRUSHING my test in a few weeks! I will be back MCA, see you next time.
I highly recommend taking this class!!! Ms. Ortega was great ( as well as the staff) & very passionate about coding! She breaks everything down in a way to help you better understand coding. I definitely feel more confident about getting my certification! 😊👍🏾👍🏾
Cecilia Robledo Mendoza
Mrs. Ortega and her staff are amazing!! I highly recommend this course. After the 3 day course I feel very confident that i can pass the test.
Thank you Mrs Ortega and the entire MCA staff. You all have been truly amazing. Mrs Ortega breaks down coding in a way anyone can understand. I’m not gonna lie... the 3 day class was very intense and included lots of work. But now that I have completed the course, I feel confident and excited to get into the coding world. I appreciate all your hard work and dedication Mrs Ortega. Thanks again, and I will be seeing you in the near future for additional classes.
The training course with Mrs Ortega was amazing!!! She is a wonderful, caring teacher with such a big heart. I learned so much and confident I will pass my test. She will not leave your side even after you leave her class... I recommend anyone who wants to get their certification to make the sacrifice and sign up.
the best hands down class EVER!!!Mrs. Ortega is the GOAT...never have I been impressed in learning new things.. but by a strong teacher... she teaches you on levels u never thought possible.I will be back for another title
Best teacher by far! Mrs. Ortega was able to get through to me and give me confidence to pass my test! She’s very relatable and shares my faith in God! She’s definitely a blessing in my life! Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Mrs. Ortega! 💕🙏🏻

You must have an active coding certification (CPC, CCS, COC, RHIT, etc.) and at least one year of HCC coding experience. This position is 40 hours per week during standard business hours. Hiring off resumes!!If you or anyone you know may be interested, feel free to email me your resume at email@example.com. Thank you!
I just finished her 3 day course here in CA. It was intense. You definitely learn a lot in a short time, which is perfect for me and my work schedule. Ms Ortega is professional and is genuinely concerned about you succeeding on the exam and your career. I highly recommend her course if you want to save time and money. My only regret is that I didn't do this sooner!
Had an amazing experience attending the MCA 3 day program and having Mrs. Ortega as my instructor. Definitely will be recommending MCA to friends and family.
Mrs. Ortega is truly a blessing and a Godsend and we need more people like her in this world. I am so thankful to have her preparing me for the CPC Board Exam. There is NO WAY I AM NOT PASSING this test. So many people out there think they know everything and have all the answers. Be humble for once in your life. Stop wasting your time and take the 3-day course with Mrs. Ortega and see what the other thousands of students have been raving about. She is no joke. Do you want a job now or a job in a year? Do you want to take your Board Exam on the 4th day after the 3-day course or 4 weeks later? I would definitely recommend the 4th day. Please take advantage of the beautiful, remarkable, smart, and humble lady while she still has the ability to show the world what she knows. See you real soon in Dallas MCA.
I would give it 10 stars ⭐️ Extremely professional! If your looking for a course, look no further. Miss Ortega is a Powerhouse of information, and knowledge that is vital for you to succeed in passing your exam. Do Everything she says! The 3 day course is rigorous, inciteful and so full of information that you won’t get anywhere else! Thank you Medical Coding Academy and, Thank YOU Miss Ortega!! Amazing!!
Mrs. Ortega is the best teacher ever amazing!. I have never experienced a class or teacher who has captured my attention and made so much sense. I am going to take her advice and do everything she taught me in the 3 day CPC course and I have no doubt that I will pass my exam in 3 weeks.Listen to everything this woman says and follow her instructions! WE WILL PASS!!! THANK YOU MS. ORTEGA!
everyone STOP what you’re doing and head over to MCA website sign up for Mrs. Ortega 3 day class. I’ve learned so much I’m also determined that’ll pass my exam in 2 weeks. Mrs. Ortega have a special way of teaching. It’ll blow your mind after the 3rd day, she’s very sweet and knowledgeable. Just listen and follow her steps to succeed. I’m very appreciative and thankful that soon, I can better my life and also my families life thanks to Mrs. Ortega. I’ll soon be back to sign up for others certifications.
Mrs. Ortega is the most amazing teacher I have ever encountered. I have been in the medical billing and coding field for almost 10 years and I have never experienced a class or teacher who has captured my attention or made so much sense. I am absolutely going to take her advice and do everything that she taught me in the 3 day CPC course and I have no doubt that I will pass my exam in 3 weeks.Because of her I have decided to get at least 3 more certifications to better mine and my family’s lives and she is the only person I will allow to teach me because I know that with her instruction, I WILL PASS! Listen to everything this woman says and follow her example and your life will be better for it.
Looking for new opportunities try this out……
The 3-Day Boot Camp in Dallas, Texas, was AMAZING!!! I cannot stress ENOUGH what an intense, emotional, blood-pumping, REWARDING experience it was to be blessed with the opportunity of attending. I barely know where to BEGIN!I feel it is an understatement to say that Mrs. Ortega is an AMAZING teacher and a BLESSING to the world!!! Her honesty, passion, heart, soul, drive, and SKILL are all so POWERFUL from the very MOMENT you're in her presence, and lasts for the entirety of the course and WELL BEYOND! Mrs. Ortega is a HIGHLY motivational FIRECRACKER, and will ALWAYS push you to do your best and remember the UNLIMITED potential for success YOU already possess inside!! YOU can accomplish more than you ever imagined, and with NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE required!!! If by this point in my review you're STILL having doubts on whether you should attend, whether or not you "REALLY can do this," then this is my advice to YOU: Follow ALL of Mrs. Ortega's instructions from the MOMENT you step into class. DON'T ask why, DON'T complain, DON'T stomp your feet, DON'T clench your fists tight and rage -- NOT even in your HEAD! I know this may be "easier said than done" for some people, but I PROMISE you, if you just do EVERYTHING she says, you are GUARANTEED to pass the AAPC exam ON YOUR FIRST TRY! YOU WILL! It's just GUARANTEED! Also, I would like to respectfully ask you to grab the nearest Mr. Clean Magic Eraser RIGHT NOW and ERASE the word "CAN'T" from your vocabulary ENTIRELY!!! By telling yourself that something is "IMPOSSIBLE," you're only hurting YOURSELF!!! Do NOT limit yourself like this!!!! If you go into this class with the words "I CAN DO ANYTHING" in BIG bright multi-colored neon lights on a BILLBOARD inside your brain, you WILL make things happen that you NEVER THOUGHT YOU COULD MAKE HAPPEN! I could go ON AND ON (and ON) about how much of an absolute BENEFIT TO YOUR LIFE it would be to JUST give Medical Coding Academy a CHANCE, but you would be reading FOR DAYS! Just TRUST ME ON THIS: DO IT!!!! Mrs. Ortega and the rest of the OUTSTANDING Medical Coding Academy staff will NOT let you down.
Passed my Exam! Thank you Mrs. Ortega for the vital information you have given us! I will definitely be taking the next course I know it will be worth it!
Nicole Stewart Smith
This class was truly intense, but very much worth it! Ms. Ortega is sincerely passionate about helping students pass the exam so a packet is sent to you before the class to help prepare you for this intense 3 day boot camp. Now I have to admit that I did not pass my exam on the 1st try and even thought about giving up. I had a lot going on personally, and this may have played a factor in my not passing...not sure. However, Ms. Ortega began to text and check on me and continued to encourage me. I scheduled my retake exam and went back to review my notes and had to forget about the initial fail. So the second go around, I passed!! I am now making plans to take a second class with Medical Coding Academy because I believe they can truly help me get to where I want to be in this field. Thank you Ms. Ortega for being who you are and caring!
I am so grateful that I was able to attend Mrs. Ortega’s 3 day class and pass my exam. She is such a blessing in so many ways and helping change people’s lives. The staff was amazing as well the 3 day are long but make sure you do what Mrs. Ortega of you and keep it moving.Thank you again Mrs.Ortega
Mrs. Ortega is wonderful person with amazing coding knowledge of skills.I took her CPC course last weekend in Dallas,I passed 1st try on the 4th day.i didn’t have any medical background.This test is really hard 150 question with 5hr 40min time .Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us❤️
If you are serious about passing your CPC Exam I recommend Medical Coding Academy. Check out my testimonial. fhttps://goo.gl/maps/89N327fHATM2
The 3 day CPC exam prep course was intense, informative and oh so helpful! I learned so much in 3 days and this course made it possible for me to reach my goal! Yes, I passed the exam on my first try!!! I’m super happy! It’s only the beginning as I plan to take more courses with her in the future! I will be forever grateful to my instructor, Mrs Ortega and her staff. Very professional and motivating!
I signed up for this class not having any medical coding knowledge or experience. The class was amazing and Mrs. Ortega is an excellent teacher and motivational speaker! I can't believe how much I learned and how equipped I was to pass the state exam.
First I would like to thank God for blessing us with a beautiful soul, Mrs. Ortega!! My friend had taken her 3 day course in 2017 and passed boards on the 1st try. I had taken a TJC coding course and failed by 10 pts on the first try😑 BUT. I decided to give the 3 day boot camp a try Dec 7-9, 2018 and I PASSED my boards Dec 10,2018 🎉😆 I am truly grateful ❤️ You will NOT regret taking Mrs. Ortega 3 day boot camp course!! Just give it a try🥰
Amanda Joy Mcqueen Leibovitz
This past Monday was my 7th attempt at the national AAPC CPC exam. Instead of giving up after the first 6 tries I gave Medical Coding Acedemy a chance. I did the 3 day boot camp and took the test on the 4th day and PASSED with an 87! Yet the best part is before the bootcamp I only knew coding in part but after Mrs. Ortega's class I could see it as a whole picture! I FEEL SO BLESSED to have found this bootcamp and firmly believe I would not have passed without it
I passed! 🙂 All thanks to your program and excellent teaching! All of your assistants were amazing and everyone was so nice and helpful. I have already referred two of my friends to you and many more are about to follow. I will be singing your praises to anyone who will listen. Thank you so much. I am definitely a skeptic turned in to a believer. I really needed good news this week. I was worried during the test that my mind would get in my way. My grandmother was sick during this time. She passed away on the 12th. I got to see her that morning. She passed away that night. I beat myself up the entire weekend wondering if I was doing the right thing, but my grandmother would have wanted me to go. That is just the type of person she is. She was 90. She had a full life. I hate that I can't tell her in person I passed because she knew how hard I had worked all year to pass this test, but I am hoping she knows. 🙂 This program is what I needed to pass. I only wish I would have done it sooner! If I knew about it before I can only imagine how many certifications I would have by now thanks to this program and your excellent teaching style. It is very rare to meet someone like you who knows how to break down concepts like these for people to understand easily and to have passion about people the way you do! You are exactly what this world needs more of and I hope you continue to spread your knowledge and your caring heart with many more! Thank you, thank you for everything! I definitely want more certifications, but I have to figure out how to pay for them first. A work in progress I am, but thanks to you and your team I am one step closer...... 🙂
Great Experience!! Passed with 94% Mrs. Ortega is Awesome!! I can't say enough about her teaching skills and dedication to her students is amazing. If you are on the fence, stop thinking about it and INVEST in yourself, do EXACTLY what Mrs. Ortega says and you will pass also. God Bless You.
I'm Paul Farley andI'm a career changer. A few years ago, I was teaching and I broke my left femur and after that, I had to find something else. In researching medical coding, I came across Ms. Ortega's YouTube channel. God put her in my pathway. Of that I am sure! Ms. Ortega is exactly the same in person as she is on YouTube. She is passionate about what she does, she is un-matched as far as subject matter knowledge goes, and her enthusiasm shines through. A word of warning: It is a very intense three day boot camp. When she talks about that in her videos, that is no joke!. However, you will be amazed at how much you learn and retain through it all. Her methods for navigating the CPC exam WORK! I promise you they do! Ms. Ortega always says in her videos that she's a text away. She is absolutely telling you the truth. I have to confess, I didn't pass my CPC on the first attempt. I didn't manage my time well enough. However, as soon as I let her know that I didn't make it on the first try, she was on the case. She helped me with extra practice cases, with advice, and with a patience and kindness. Today, I got a wonderful Christmas present when I found out I had passed the CPC. It truly is a beast! As a teacher myself, I here want to say that Ms. Ortega has in a full measure the most important quality a teacher has to have and that is she has a true servant heart. One last thing. If the cost is causing you to doubt whether you should do this or not; if the need to possibly travel to Dallas or to a city near you; if timed tests make you nervous like they do me, do not listen to the doubts. Do what it takes to get signed up for the three-day course. You'll never be sorry you did. And please do the pre-work before you show up for class. You'll be very glad you did.
I took the 3 day Medical Coding course in Mesquite, TX, this past weekend and it was Awesome! Mrs. Ortega and her staff were amazing! If anyone is looking for a career change to medical coding, I highly recommend Medical Coding Academy. A big THANK YOU to Mrs. Ortega and her staff!!!
What an AMAZING 3 day course!!! Loved it! Mrs. Ortega is a very passionate woman who wants to see every one of her students succeed! She goes above and beyond! I learned more in this class then the entire time I was in college! I took the test on the 4th day so waiting for the results. I have to say thought, all that work from the class was sooo worth it!!
I took the 3-day coding course this past weekend and Miss Ortega was awesome...I will recommend her entire course to others...
My sister and I completed this training last weekend in Mesquite. I have a Master's Degree in Education and she is a RN. We both agree that it was the most intensive training session that we have ever attended. WHAT AN EXPERIENCE! Mrs. Ortega is committed to seeing her students succeed in their testing. She clearly and concisely breaks down the extensive amount of information. Her energy and knowledge is remarkable. If in the future, we seek further training it will be with Mrs. Ortega.
Holly WitherowI recently invested in a three-day course at the Medical Coding Academy to take the CPC exam. The course offered a no non-sense approach of systematically approaching the CPC exam. The presentation delivers information that allows you to feel more confident in taking the exam. The instructor also linked CPT, ICD-10CM, and HCPCS in a cohesive format to better prepare your approach in taking the exam since time is of the essence and there is a lot to read.In the past, I have had many questions about medical coding and each training day resolved many of my past questions. The organization cares about your test outcome and your personal, professional success.The three days are intense but worth your time. Not only do I recommend everyone to take this course but if you really want to be certified DO NOT THINK TWICE. You will be glad you did it.By the way, I did not get pay for my opinion, nor am I related to anyone in the organization. I am just a student who took the course and wish somebody would have told me about Medical Coding Academy sooner.
This was the best decision I ever made after taking a 10 month online course I learned more in 3 days than i ever did online its incredible! I took the test on the 4th day and I felt so confident thanks Mrs.Ortega your the best!!
The boot camp this weekend was amazing!!! I was super nervous about paying for and taking classes again for medical coding because in the past I wasted money and time but let me just say this weekend was nothing short of a blessing. Mrs. Ortega is really an amazing instructor that is walking in her purpose. God should be really proud of her. I love her techniques and how down to Earth she is but most of all I really felt at ease when she spoke about paying it forward in life. She has been blessed and now she is blessing others and that’s what the world needs! Her staff were amazing as well. The 3 day class requires a lot but if you do the pre-work homework before the dates of the class- things will flow very smoothly. I would advise everyone that is interested in coding to take this. Don’t allow the other trade schools to take your money and time. This is legit. I plan to take other courses with Mrs. Ortega so I will be part of the ‘alphabet soup’ group! 🙂 if you sign up - just go into it with an open mind and remain positive at ALL TIMES!!! Thank you Medical Coding Academy for being so professional but yet so heart warming. Now let’s just wait to see the results from the weekend .... Sincerely, A future CPC !
James 4:2-3 Ye have not because Ye ask not. I asked and one morning I was in my recliner searching on the website trying to find a class and I stumble on this website,the 3 day caught my eyes and I said," Look at God". People are placed in our lives for a season or a life time. Mrs Ortega I'm indebted to you for life and the way I will repay you by being the best coder and whatever other certificate I come and add on , that God will have me to be. You are a God sent, my conformation was when you said in class that you pray for your students, my heart melted. The only person that ever prays for me is my mom. You made me feel like I'm part of the family once again I want to say thank you from my heart to your heart.
Lucille Julia Impastato
I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Ms. Ortega and the medical coding academy! I never thought I would be able to fully comprehend medical coding and exceed in my career ... but it is because of her and this academy that has completely changed my life! I cannot thank you enough for such a humble, amazing experience ! It was worth every penny!
What an awesome class!!!!! Very thankful to Mrs. Ortega and the TA's for all of their help. Keep movin on!!!! 😊😁😀😉
I have to say that Mrs. Ortega and her entire team made this journey from New York worth it. Her love for God is captivating and it reminds me of why I love God so much. She is not only a life changer but I solely believe that she is a God sent world changer. The entire experience was priceless. I attended the three day boot camp for my CPC and took the test today. I have to say that the Medical Coding Academy prepared me like no other. Yes it is intense but worth it. I am currently awaiting my results. I highly recommend anyone who want to pursue coding to take her. YOU WON"T REGRET IT!! (I still hear her voice in my head!!! She really cares) 😇😇😇🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽
Amy Shinpaugh Walker
update... I Did PASS!!! And with an 86 too!!! WOO HOO!!! First of all... I LOVE how Godly Mrs Ortega is!! She will blessed you beyond measure!! She definitely has a gift! Ok so I’ve taken the CPC test in the past and just couldn’t pass it!! But after the 3 day workshop with Mrs Ortega this weekend, I KNOW I passed it this time!! And I don’t just know I passed it, I’m pretty sure I aced it!! Yay!! Words can’t describe how awesome this lady is!! Listen to what she says, then do what she says and you’ll have those three letters behind your name in no time! She gives you the tools you need to succeed and She loves her students and wants the very best for them. DONT be like my past self and think you can eventually pass it on your own!! You get yourself signed up for Mrs Ortega’s COC class!! Thank you SO very much, Mrs Ortega!! Couldn’t have done it without you!! 🙌🎉❤️
This class was amazing!!! I signed up for an online class in 2016 and never felt confident enough to take the exam. And after three very long days, I have no qualms. I wish I would have known about this program sooner. I stepped out on faith and signed up maybe 5 days before the course began I do not recommend this there is a lot of pre-work get all of this done before. I’m so excited to now take my exam. I love her love, for God and how she’s not afraid to show it. Even if you aren’t religious it’s very digestible. I will be signing up for more classes for sure. Ms. Ortega genuinely loves what she does. I will only recommend this class from now on. Other online classes are a waste of your time and money. If you do not pass it is your own fault.
I’m so thankful for being introduced to MCA! The entire staff is amazing, kind, helpful, understanding and friendly. Mrs. Ortega is the real deal! I will be recommending MCA to others. I look forward to returning for more letters to add to my alphabet soup! This program is truly a blessing from God!!!!🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾
Ronda P Reid
Wow! I just attended the 3 day boot camp! What a fantastic experience!! Not only did Mrs. Ortega do a wonderful job teaching but she knows her stuff and the industry. Please sign up for her course ASAP! Look at all of her YouTube videos. She does not sugar coat anything. I appreciated her zealous style, willingness to stop and explain and most of all her energy. Sign up now!!!
So let me start by saying I WAS SO SKEPTICAL but let me tell you, DON'T BE!!!! I attended the Dallas class Dec.7-9th and I take my test on Dec. 15th. I'm so impressed with MCA!!! I have no experience in medical coding but after this 3day weekend, I feel like a medical coder already!! I know I will pass this test on the 1st try! Take this class, you will not regret it!!!
Mrs. Ortega is a wonderful teacher. I feel like I learned more from the class than going to a junior college 2 years for coding. I failed the first time and found out about her class. I am more confidence in myself to take the test again! All of your staff were wonderful!!! Thank you again!
If you are considering a career in the Medical Coding field I highly suggest the MCA. Mrs. Ortiz is an amazing teacher. I was in the CPC class this past weekend in Dallas and I learned more in her class in the first day than I did in the two year program I just finished. If you choose the course make very certain you do all the necessary pre work and homework before class it is vital to your success in the class. It was long days but well worth it. I plan to go back for more classes. Thank you to Mrs. Ortega and the teachers assistants. I feel confident about taking my test on Saturday 15 Dec. Please pray for me!
This course was fabulous!! I walked in knowing absolutely nothing about medical coding and left feeling prepared for the real world and the board test. Ms.Ortega’s fun personality and way of teaching really made the weekend fly by. I will for sure be back for my next credentials!
The only word I can say is UNBELIEVABLE! Mrs. Ortega’s class will change your WHOLE LIFE! Trust the process she has one and she shares it! You will see ATTACKING THE TEST SO DIFFERENT! Do yourself a favor TAKE HER 3 day class!
I've completed Mrs. Ortega 3day course and let me tell you she is a extraordinary teacher and human being period... She truly is passionate about educating and helping others succeed in life.. I've learned so much in just the 3days and i knew nothing about medical coding but mrs. Ortega changed that for me and my perspective on life... im so excited about this test tomorrow... i will have my CPC on friday thanks to mrs. ortega and her wonderful staff helping us along the way as well... I appreciate ALL of you for your help.. THANK YOU SO MUCH
LaDonna Crist Aguilar
I was a skeptic too... resist the urge to listen to the whole “if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is”. This IS the exception!! 3 days to a CPC it’s true! All of the staff and instructors at Medical Coding Academy have a heart for the students! They don’t take your investment lightly! They invest in you and give you all the strategies to succeed! My best advice if you are on the fence... RUN don’t walk and sign up! When you sign up do ALL of the Pre-work and classwork, it is essential to your success! If possible I recommend staying on site even if you are local (you’ll be glad you did). It really is AMAZING!
Awesome class. I learned so much and have more confidence in myself. Mrs. Ortega is a wonderful person with amazing teaching skills and a great heart.
The 3 day coding class is amazing. I learned so much in such a short time!!!Mrs Ortega rocks!!!I would highly recommend taking this class!!!
BEST Decision EVER MADE!!!! Invest in yourself and TAKE Mrs.Ortega course 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾 She IS A BLESSING!!!!!!!
Extremely recommend Ms.Ortega she does amazing work in just 3 days !
I attended the 3-day CPC course in Los Angeles October 2018 and I just received the news that I Pass on my first try. Mrs. Ortega you are awesome. When I first saw her videos on YouTube I was a bit skeptical but let me tell you its real. You will be learning from the best. Be prepare for hard work but totally worth your time and money. The test is a beast but with Mrs. Ortega's class there is no doubt you will pass.
I took Mrs.Ortegas 3 day course in october of 2018.I watch all of her youtube videos and decided to take a chance.It was worth every penny.You have to do a lot of homework and prework ,sleepless nights.But it is worth every peeny.Mrs.Ortega breaks it down in a way you can understand.I took my test on October 27th.The wait is hard.I receive a notification from aapc saying my results are ready.on November 6 i found out that i PASSED.I could not have done it without Mrs.ortega and Medical Coding Academy help.I waill forever be thankful.

I'm going to be honest! After completing this course I was so overwhelmed. Mrs. Ortega went the extra mile to help me pass this beast of exam. I can not express enough how this lady truly cares for her students. My sister in law was hired a couple of months after passing the exam by established company. She started making decent money, 3 weeks vacation, full medical, 401k and works from home. Take this course you will not be disappointed. Sincerely, Shelly Ramirez

I took Mrs. Ortegas course during October of 2018 and it was intense but I just so happen to pass my first exam on the first try as Mrs. Oretega tells you, you will! shes awsome and this program is worth the money!
I attended the 3-day CPC course in Los Angeles on October 19-21, 2018. The pre-work and the course itself was intense, but you will be SO impressed with what you can do and how much you can handle when you set your mind to something. I learned so much in 3 days and I completed the course feeling ready for the CPC exam. Additionally, Mrs. Ortega is genuine, caring, and one heck of a teacher! It’s difficult to find the exact words to say about Mrs. Ortega because she really is a blessing and one in a million. I did all of the homework after the course and took my CPC Exam exactly one week after. I passed on my first try and I’m officially CPC-certified! I’ll definitely be back at MCA next year for the COC and CPMA courses. Thank you Mrs. Ortega for all that you do!!!!

Taking this class was an amazing experience and blessing!!! I could not have asked for a better and more caring instructor. Mrs. Ortega truly cares for her students and for their success. This program best prepares you for getting into the field! It's also the shortest and most affordable one out there. I can tell that a lot of thought, preparation and care went into the design of this program. Don't wait any longer and sign up for the class and then a week later for the board exam!

Best investment you'll ever make all around!

I can’t stress this enough, if you are looking to get certified CPC, COC,...etc..with or without experience in the medical field and you are not using Medical Coding Academy you are doing this all wrong. I did the the CPC 3 day boot camp in September with Mrs Ortega (God sent) and her wonderful team. I have no experience, the 3 days class is very intense but well worth it. Make sure to do all of your homework this is crucial. Mrs Ortega have a heart of gold and she will drill so much information to you that, when you write your test you will feel like she is sitting next to you and “You will keep it moving” 😀 I can’t wait to get other credentials with Medical Coding Academy #CPCDallasTX #MedicalCodingAcademy #BestCodingSchool #CPCBootCamp
I attended the CPC course taught by Mrs. ORTEGA this last Weekend And wow did I learn a lot in such a little timeframe. I'm going to community college to get my AAS in professional coding but I was getting worried because I just was not understanding how to code properly But when you take her course she breaks everything down so that you can understand it in simple terms. I am so grateful for that, Not saying that the course is easy you will have to put in hard work but in the end when you understand this new language of medical coding all your hard work is well worth it In the pay isn't too bad either. So if you want to get into the medical field As a coder I would do this before college it will save you a lot of time and money She is truly gifted and has a tremendous amount of knowledge in her field, more than I think my own professor's Have. The key to absorbing all the information that she gives you is you have to Do what she says, all pre work and all homework. So if you're on the fence hop off in sign up for her class there's enough coding jobs for all of Us.
Mrs..Ortega is an amazing teacher!! Thank you so much
What can I say.... She is a lot. The class is a lot. It takes 100% commitment to get everything you need. You get only enough sleep to function on. It’s worth every missed second of sleep, every dollar spent, and every thing of ribbon white out I throw across the room. Here is my story...Mrs Ortega is pretty amazing! I took her 3 day class on October 5-7 and took my test on October 13. In between that time hurricane Michael hit my home and I was out of power for 7 days and in the middle of those 7 days was my test. To say I was worried would be an understatement. Yes you come home with homework to keep you on track and keep it fresh on your mind but in this situation it was a struggle. I had no power, a roof covered in tarps, 2 stir crazy boys, trying to help the community and ones that were in worse shape then me, as well as studying and remembering everything Mrs Ortega taught me! If I would not have taken her class I know 100% I would not have even came close to passing. I messaged her with my struggles and told her I was worried. She believed in me more than I believed in myself. At that moment I know she gave me everything I needed and I couldn’t let her down. I didn’t reschedule my test because of the things happening out of my control. I put everything I had into God and Mrs Ortega and I sat down and took that test like I knew every answer! I passed with a 86!!!! She is truly God sent in this field and I will never ever ever dream of trying to further my career without seeking her advice and classes out first. Take heed of everything this amazing woman says. She knows her stuff. Do exactly like she says and everything she says and you too will pass!
i don't write reviews often, but when i do, i only write for MCA! stay prepared my friends 🙂 What can i say about Medical Coding Academy and the wonderful Mrs. Ortega that's not already mentioned in all the 5 star reviews from her students? to be honest i'm not sure, it's all been said! Is it the BEST investment for your Medical Coding Career? YES! Is it easy to learn even if you have ZERO knowledge about Medical Coding? YES! Will you be 100% prepared for the BOARD Exam? YES! I'm waiting to take the CPC Exam in a few weeks but i am 100% prepared, and feel confident in passing! I am so thankful for Mrs. Ortega, not only for her teachings, but also her passion for helping people and her ability to give people hope and faith! that's why i only recommend MCA for anyone looking into a Medical Coding Career.

i drove 7 hours to Los Angeles last Aug to attend the 3 day course ,so worthy the time and money spent. I was amazed of Ms Delissa's passion and anointing in teaching. She is super multi talented. lady. I passed my exam for the first time, no experience and i'm 60 yrs old. This proved that age and experience don't matter what is important is how good, (the BEST).. the teacher is. She gave me the confidence to do it. She will guide you, give the strategies and gave her heart to help you.....in return of course you do also the pre work and apply every word she said. ....She was really heaven sent . I'm thanking God for the grace and use people like ma'am Delissa to help students. Thank you very much ma'am Delissa for your time with us and be a part of my journey. Looking forward for the next alphabet soup.😍😘
I attended the CPC course in Atlanta on October 5-7th 2018. I have to say this course exceeded my expectations! Mrs. Ortega is an AWESOME teacher. She’s passionate, smart, witty and KNOWS HER STUFF!! I absolutely loved the class and whether you’re a newbie or a seasoned coder you need to take her course. I will be taking my certification in a couple weeks and i feel confident that I will pass with what I’ve learned. Coding was new to me and I feel confident! That’s amazing right?!. Please don’t hesitate to take this course. Mrs. Ortega has a heart ans a gift for teaching and you can feel that instantly. I stepped out on faith taking this course and I’m so glad that I did.
There are no words to describe Mrs Ortega and her wonderful team at MCA. My sister and I took her 3-day INTENSIVE medical coding course and I am proud to say we BOTH passed on our first try!! We were so impressed with the Medical Coding Academy, that I convinced my HUSBAND to take her course 2 weeks later! We are thrilled with where this new path of medical coding will take us. Mrs Ortega has this passion for coding and seeing people succeed that you have to experience to understand. Do your research (as I did) and take the leap with the Medical Coding Academy! You will NOT be disappointed, in fact, you will be prepared and confident walking into that exam ready to OWN it, as I did!!! Thank you Mrs Ortega! I can only hope to take your courses for the CRC and COC this year! Please keep doing what you're doing. In a time of upheaval in my life, I am so thankful to have found you and the Medical Coding Academy! Direction, purpose, and achievement is what I have gained from your experience and knowledge. Oh! Not to mention, my CPC!🤗
Amy Lynn Hurst-Morley
I had the privilege to attend this class this past weekend in Atlanta, this is well worth your money, She will surprise you with how well she will teach you and she is a very genuine whole hearted person who wants you to succeed.
I absolutely recommend taking Mrs Ortega's 3 day course for CPC if you're really serious about being a coder. I sat for her 3 day course just recently here in Atlanta and I'm telling you I couldn't be more prepared for my exam October 27th. Thank you Mrs Ortega for bringing all of your knowledge and energy to Atlanta. You really are the BEST!!!
I want to let everyone know how important is Ms. Ortega.The best teacher of this world. She only only wants to teach you but also makes you understand all of the materials. I was never involved with coding, so I thought that the class would be difficult. But Ms. Ortega has you covered in every angle. Everyone in her company is very helpful forBelen to Jessica and everyone else.Highly recommend
Amazing! Encouraging! Motivational! Blessed! We traveled from NC to GA this weekend to be apart of the MCA CPC 3 day course! Halfway into Day 1 yes Day 1 I received information that wasn’t given to me when I attended a community college 8 week boot camp prep course! Mrs. Oretga is a Very intelligent, patient and Blessed Woman! I encourage ALL to take this course with MCA if you want to change your career, and give your wages a upgrade! Love you Mrs. Ortega! Thank you for following the plan🙏🏽!
I highly recommend MCA because Mrs. Ortega teaches you how to code quickly and accurately that can help u when u take your exam. She is very passionate about making sure each individual passes their exam and prepares you for the interview to get that coding job. I would consider MCA over ANY coding programs because u receive so much more!
I passed my CPC exam at the first try, and I knew nothing about medical coding before her class. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND MEDICAL CODING ACADEMY!!! Mrs. Ortega was AWESOME! and very professional. She wasted no time teaching us exactly what we needed to know for the CPC class. I highly highly recommend that you do the pre work before taking her 3-day course.
I took the 3 day coding bootcamp in Atlanta in June 2018. Mrs. Ortega was a wonderful, patient, knowledgeable, and caring instructor. There was a lot of pre-work and many nights of only 2 or 3 hours of sleep. It was all worth it. I am now CPC certified thanks to her! You will learn so much and feel confident at the AAPC if you take her course.
I went to Mrs Ortega’s Sept. 2018 3-day prep course! It was nothing short of amazing! She is very passionate about the process of learning, she answers your questions and makes sure you understand before moving on in the lesson. I have been Coding(not Certified for over 4years) her course and preparation gave me the confidence i needed... Guess what: I PASSED ON MY FIRST TIME TAKING THE TEST. Thank you Mrs Ortega for your dedication and hard work you put into teaching your students !

I took the 3 day Medical Coding Certificate and Exam course 9/7/18-9/9/18. I was impressed with the information covered. I liked the way Mrs. Ortega explained the material. Mrs. Ortega and her staff were very helpful. The course really prepared me for the exam. I took the exam on 9/10/18 and passed. Now I am a Certified Profession Coder. It was a hard weekend, full of long class hours and prep/home work each night after the class ended, but there is a lot of information to cover in just three days, so the home work is necessary. The prep/home work really does help prepare youfor the test. Thanks Mrs. Ortega & staff!
I am a certified Medical Coding Coder because of Mrs.Ortega and her team, i passed the test on the first time around! I was very skeptic when i first looked into the class especially because I was going to be travel to Texas for the 3 day boot camp. The 3 day course is no joke, it is a lot of information with long days and hours of homework ever night. However it was all worth it, I was able to retain a lot of valuable information. I think it was imperative for me that the test was taken the day after I completed the course. Everything was still fresh in my mind. Mrs.Ortega gives you all of the tools (her tabbing system makes a world of difference) to pass the test along with the self confidence. As long as you put in the work you will successful! I highly recommend this class to anyone that wants to put in hard work and become a Certified Medical Coder. And I look forward to attending more classes with the Medical Coding Academy.
Mrs. Ortega and her team are awesome!!! I passed my CPC on the first try! I have a job opportunity waiting for me too!!! My whole experience was with Medical Coding Academy has been excellent! Get ready to work hard, highlight alot (it is soooo worth it) and keep a fast pace. All of the work is worth it!!! THANK YOU MRS. ORTEGA and YOUR TEAM!!!
Kris Ann Allen
I took Mrs. Ortega’s CPC class and learned so much. It’s hard work but very worth it. I got a 94 on my CPC exam.
Medical Coding Academy is worth the money, time, and sacrifice away from family! If you go into the class with your pre-work completed and fully prepared to focus solely on the course, you will be able to learn and obtain the information needed to pass your exam. Mrs. Ortega and each one of her staff members go above and beyond to help each individual! They truly believe in what they are doing, and after taking the course, I do too! You will have quite a bit of homework every night after class, so there is absolutely no time to vacation. If taking the CPC certification course, you will experience three days full of engaging lessons taught by someone who absolutely wants what is best for you and your future. The Medical Coding Academy staff pour their hearts into what they do! I went in with no experience in the industry. I left with a CPC certification, full faith in the abilities and heart of Mrs. Ortega and her staff, and the tools/materials necessary to immediately apply for a job while practicing the skills she taught.
Beverly Cowey Sullivan
Wow! I passed my CPC exam! Mrs. Ortega and Medical Coding Academy (MCA) took 3 days to teach the CPC coding course techniques that I’ve been studying for years. I did great with my coding online studies through AAPC, but when it came time for testing, I missed it twice. I thank GOD for putting people in my life that has helped me achieve my goal, to be a CPC. Thank you to my husband and family for helping and encouraging me. Thank you to three ladies who are friends/coworkers that also encouraged me and lead me to MCA. Thank You Mrs. Ortega for showing me that I can do this and for staying with your class throughout the long hours. It was so worth it! Don’t hesitate - go for it! You won’t regret it! Take this course and be on your way to a rewarding career! The cost was minimal compared to what I spent for my previous studies.
You will be blown away by how much you could learn and accomplish in 3 days if you put your mind into it. Take a chance and believe in yourself and put in the work and trust me, you will pass the CPC exam. This class will shock you. I passed the exam on the first try and I have no prior experience! Mrs. Ortega’s method of teaching works! She makes you learn!
I took the CPC 3day boot camp first weekend in September with Mrs Ortega. The staff was amazing especially my TA Mrs. Newby. This class was very intense but worth it. You must complete the pre-work and homework in order to stay on track. I took the exam on Monday the 10th with a PASSING result. I highly recommend this boot camp as you will not be disappointed. Thank you to the staff of MCA.
America Mac Kizer
Words cannot express how thankful I am to have come across Mrs. Ortega’s CPC 3 day class! I took the time to do my homework and research several other options but the minute I watched one of Mrs. Ortega’s You Tube videos, I just knew this is where I needed to be. Mrs. Ortega is very knowledgeable, very patient, and very dedicated to her students. The three day course was very intense and it was hard work but Mrs. Ortega and her wonderful Team made sure no man was left behind. She has a heart of GOLD and God has blessed her with this incredible gift to help others pass this Exam. It is beyond amazing to see her teaching methods our jaws constantly dropped in disbelief. She is a Gem!!!You will have a lot of homework prior to class, and just as much during your weekend, but don’t give up!!! You will reap the benefits of your hard work and you will be blessed by Mrs. Ortega beyond your expectations. P.s. I am humbled and excited to share...I Passed My CPC Exam on my first try! You too can do the same, believe in yourself, believe in Mrs. Ortega!!!Thank you again Mrs. Ortega and thank you to ALL the Medical Coding Academy Staff!!!
This 3 day was the hardest most rewarding course I’ve ever taken! I am so thankful I got the opportunity to learn from Mrs Ortega and her team! I passed my Exam🎉 I highly recommend this course and this academy! I’m looking forward to getting many more credentials behind my name with MCA!
Just took the cpc course on the 7-9. Took my test on Monday the 10th. I just received my test scores today I PASSED my first time taking this test! Thank you so so much Mrs.Ortega. Highly recommend this course!
When I first looked at the video on YouTube I thought this might be shady...I WAS TOTALLY WRONG!!! This team of people are the REAL DEAL...they are worth every penny. People please don't bother with any other programs out there...PLEASE TRUST ME!!! Is is not about the money with them and you know it when you start to work with them...they LOVE PEOPLE AND EDUCATING THEM! I am so grateful that I took a leap of faith...I encourage you to do the same😄🤗😁😙!

I’ve been in the industry for 10 years. I definitely recommend.
Chanell Vallon Imbraguglio
I had been looking into medical coding for the last year. I had narrowed the decision down to online courses with either the AAPC or AHIMA. Soon after I became even more indecisive after researching both organizations due to mixed reviews. Then in March I came across one of Ms. Ortega's YouTube videos. After watching the first video, she had me hook, line and sinker!!!! This woman is truly a God Send!! Like everyone now reading these reviews, I thought this is crazy amazing!! OMG this is just too good to be true! How am going to become this Go To medical coder in only three days??? Please believe me when I say, it is truly possible. This is the real deal! During the months following up to the three day course, I had watched all of Ms. Ortega's videos....more than once...and took notes. The course only costs $1280 and MCA works with you in regards to a payment plan. After registering for the CPC course, MCA mails their students pre-work. The pre-work will take roughly 20 to 25 hours to complete and it is truly essential when taking the course. I attended the course in Dallas, TX at the end of July. We had about 95 students attending the class. One student had even flown all the way from Hawaii just to attend! I'm not going to lie, the course is intense but you will learn a vast amount of information in only three days. Ms. Ortega and her MCA staff are truly amazing!!!!!!!!! She is an explosive powerhouse of coding knowledge and breaks everything down for you by having you work from the ground up. I can not stress enough how important it is to complete both the pre-work and homework. The completion of this work can either make you or break you on the board exam. Ms. Ortega also gives you interviewing tips along with helpful real world practice scenarios that will benefit you after you pass the exam. Now with the Dallas course, students are given an option of taking the board exam on the fourth day. I was one of those students who chose to take the exam on the fourth day. Unfortunately I did not pass the first time. It had absolutely nothing to do with Ms. Ortega and her classroom instruction. From what I've heard many students pass on the first try. Unfortunately I was not one of those students. I felt pretty good coming out of the exam room and thought I had at least passed with a 70 but to my dismay I missed it by three points. Three points!!!! You know what though....It's okay. AAPC offers one free retake!!! Thank you God!! After I found out the horrible news, I texted Ms. Ortega. She was extremely understanding and suggested I retake the exam within the month. For the next three weeks, I studied at least one hour everyday. I took the retake exam and a week later found out I PASSED!!!!!!! I'm still elated from the news and can't wait to continue on with my medical coding career!! So in conclusion if you feel beyond confident with taking the board exam on the fourth day then I say go for it but if you're someone who may need more time to study, I would suggest delaying the exam for a couple of weeks. Good luck future Go To Coders!!!
Best Course I could have ever taken, I drove all the way from Denver Colorado to take 3 courses all at once so I could get that alphabet soup Ms. Ortega talked about in her other YouTube Videos. If you have the money to take several courses all at once, I highly recommend doing so . I tested out all three of my exams pretty much within the same month and passed all three in the 1st try. Now I am CPC, COC, & CPMA board certified and it is all thanks to Ms. Ortega and her wonderful school, The Medical Coding Academy!
Yes! 100% yes!! Mrs. Ortega was incredible, she was a powerhouse of information with an incredible tabbing system designed to guide us into success. I hid my tears after the test because it was hard but I was relieved, motivated, and inspired by her energy. She touched every emotion in me, pushed me to the limit, and delivered a no questions asked just do it curriculum. When she says to trust her, trust her. Although I may have areas I need to revisit for refreshers, honestly that’s on me. Her teaching was on point and if you think you have what it takes to keep up, stay motivated, and follow her lead then you have nothing to loose and everything to gain. I flew from California to attend her class in Dallas. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Mrs. Ortega! 💜
I just took the three day course this past weekend. First I would like to thank GOD for faith and endurance. I would secondly like to thank Mrs. Oregtea and Medical Coding Academy. This is by far one of the BEST decisions I've ever made for a life changing experience for me. Mrs. Ortega really has a gift for teaching, she taught the course in a way that if you haven't learned anything about coding before going to her three day course you would be able to understand. Moving forward I feel strongly about becoming a coder, and I will definitely be going to Medical Coding Academy to take more course to add under my belt. Thanks again to Mrs. Ortega and her staff, and remember my name cause you will definitely see it again.
Brittany Soileau Savoie
Guys it's a no brainer, if you have found this amazing classnot disappointed! Never have I been more confident taking an exam. you will not get this education anywhere else because it was created by the amazing lady who teaches the class Mrs.Ortega💜🙌
My experience from the coding boot camp this weekend was so amazing. Mrs. Ortega is amazing and so gifted at what she does. She makes the boot camp so personal. It’s a long weekend of work but so worth every minute! I’ve taken a 9 month coding course and never felt prepared as I have now for the CPC exam. I can honestly say she made it easy to grasp everything I needed to know to take the exam. I will definitely be going back to gain another creditial with the MCA in the near future.
DaMonica Brown Sims
Best coding class I have ever attended!
Tasia Nicole James
This was by far the best class I ever taken. I learned so much in 3 days that most people don’t learn in years. Mrs. Ortega does an awesome job at explaining things so simple for you to understand. I now have confidence in entering into this field and it’s all thanks to her. If you have been struggling to pass your cpc exam etc. listen to me...TAKE THIS COURSE!!! You will thank me later. Thank you so much Mrs. Ortega and the Medical Coding Academy staff, you guys are awesome ❤️❤️❤️
I had been looking into medical coding for months now, but had been struggling to afford to pay to go to college. I came across MCA while I was searching for medical coding courses, and I decided to take a chance! Mrs. Ortega's course is 100% WORTH IT!! I have no background or experience in coding at all, I have only had experience working in retail. I took Mrs. Ortega's CPC Course, and I passed my exam on the FIRST try! Everything you hear about Mrs. Ortega is all true, she is 100% there for her students, and she will do whatever it takes to get you there. Please support MCA and take Mrs. Ortega's class while you can because it truly is a miracle!! Just do your pre-work and just listen to what she tells you to do and she will guide you in the right way! If I can do it, anyone can do it!! Shout out to you Mrs. Ortega and the staff of MCA for all the hard work and sacrifices you all have made to make this course happen. This is truly going to be a life changing experience for me because now I can finally look forward to having a career, and a future! You have no idea how much this all means to me. I will wake up every morning now, and thank God that I took that class. Especially when I get up to go to work, and be thankful that I get to be a part of the medical industry and do what I've always wanted to do! Thank you MCA - the academy that changes lives and opens so many doors of opportunities! I look forward to being back in again to further my education, and get my "alphabet soup"! And if you have read this far into my post, I thank you, but you should be going to sign up for Mrs. Ortega's class NOW!! 😀
There's no way I could have passed the CPC on the first try without the Medical Coding Academy and Mrs. Ortega's dedication. I strongly recommend attending the academy if you are interested in coding. Only attend if you are willing to work hard! Kudos to Mrs. Ortega!
Claresia Gunter Brooks
I recommend the Medical Coding Academy for a number of reason.Upon signing up for the CPC (Certified Professional Coders) Class I watched Mrs.Ortega’s YouTube videos and with doing that I just new I had to take her class. Mrs. Ortega is more than knowledgeable about all subject matters in regards to the Medical Coding and any and all of the classes that are offered by the Medical Coding Academy.In the 3 day Coding class there were many people that walk in to class of many different walks of life and careers.But while in that class Mrs.Ortega is able to project a understanding of any and all subject matter to the whole class. Mrs.Ortega makes sure that you are more that prepared for for the class, the state board test and real life on the job functions .I actually went to college for Medical billing and Coding and obtain Associates Degree in Medical Billing and Coding. But I learned far more in the 3 day boot camp class offered by the Medical Coding Academy then I learned while obtaining my associates,to were I felt more than comfort taking the state board test immediately after the class. I took the test on July 30, 2018 and I passed the CPC with a 90% out of 100.Since July 2018 I have also take the following classes and have scheduled to take my state board exam for the following-Certified Outpatient Coder- COCCertified Professional Medical Auditor-CPMACertified Professional Biller-CPBOnce completing the above three test I have every intention of registering for and taking the following 3 additional classes and state board tests for the following-Certified Risk Adjuster Certified Compliance OfficerCertified Medical Coding ManagerI want to one day have my own medical coding and billing office. So these class and certifications are directly in line with my future becoming even more a success. To all the of you that are on the fence about take a class with the Medical Coding Academy , make a investment in yourself to where you can go work at any doctor’s office, hospital, or even go to work for yourself and start your own business.Mrs.Ortega is a superior educator as well as all of the other 5 educators that are on this panel of educating. Choosing the Medical Coding Academy will be one of the best decisions that you will make in your life time.Sincerely Claresia
I recently attended this class an I would like to say that Mrs. Ortega is one-in-a-million! She helped someone who is just starting out in the healthcare profession pass the CPC exam on the first try! That takes one special person and! Thank you Mrs. Ortega for sharing your teaching gift with all of us. I recommend this class to anyone wanting to pass your exam with ease.
You know the saying don't believe the hype? WELL YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT!!!!Let me tell you, when I was first looking for medical coding courses I ran across Mrs Ortega 3-day course. I will say that I was very skeptical at first I did tons and tons of research of the course. I watched all YouTube videos I read just about every single review and even watch the reviews on YouTube. so then I thought to myself all these people can't be lying lol. So I took that "dive". I took the 3-day course in boy when I tell you it is intense it is but you so freaking much it's crazy. The passion that Mrs Ortega has for you to learn the skill too code, the passion that she has to teach is amazing. I love her so much for what she does and how she does it. I have the utmost respect for her. Don't get me wrong she is a bulldog when it comes to teaching when it comes to you knowing everything. And if you don't understand something she will take the time out with you to make sure that you understand, to make sure that you pass that test, to make sure that you Excel in the coding world. So if you're on the fence about taking this class, don't be. I promise you it is worth everything. Don't waste time taking those semester courses for coding. TAKE MRS ORTEGA 3-DAY COURSE ASAP YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT I PROMISE YOU SHE'S AMAZING. Oh yeah one more thing in order to pass the exam on the first try, you must and I repeat YOU MUST DO EVERYTHING THAT SHE TELLS YOU TO DO WITHIN THAT 3-DAY COURSE. I mean it. Everything is for a reason.
Ms. Ortega is an incredible teacher. I was skeptical and in total disbelief at first, but she proved me wrong. Even though, the three day course was tiresome, it was all worth it. Ms. Ortega is thorough in her method of teaching and if you follow her tips, the exam is a cakewalk. I immediately took the exam after my 3-day course and passed with flying colors. Ms. Ortega is Godsend. I would recommend MCA to anyone who is interested in coding.
Hello!! I would recommend this three day course to anyone who wants to become a Professional Medical Coder. Mrs.Ortiga is an amazing teacher and she has a best teaching style. Her course is completely organized. I'm new to coding and I have zero coding experience. I attended the 3- day course at Dallas, Texas (end of July) and sat for the exam on the 4th day. Well folks, I PASSED on my first try. Now I'm a CPC-A. All thanks to Mrs.Ortega and Medical Coding Academy. Without Mrs.Ortega this wouldn't have happened. This class is a real big deal. The course is intense, you'll have to work hard and no doubt that the results are so rewarding. I'm so grateful to Mrs.Ortega and MCA for providing me with all the materials and knowledge that gave me confidence to take the board exam on the very next day and now I'm CPC-A. Thank you Mrs.Ortega & MCA !!
I completed the 3 day course and it was worth all the hard work, time and money. Mrs. Ortega is very motivating and everyone involved is very helpful and there to help you succeed. I'm so glad that I decided to take part in the program. I just learned that I passed my certification exam and I'm looking forward to my new career!

This class is Amazing. I can't say enough on how Great of an Instructor Mrs.Ortega is!! If you are considering Medical Coding, you should do yourself a favor and sign up for her class. She will teach you everything you need to know. It is a lot of work in 3 days, but when you are done, you feel so accomplished and ready for your new life as a coder. Thank you Mrs.Ortega and all of your staff.
Mrs. Ortega is hands down the BEST instructor in the industry. Genuine and smart and it doesn’t get any better than that. Highly recommend to anyone!!
Had a wonderful experience with medical coding academy. I can’t recommend it enough for anyone who is thinking about a career change. Mrs. Ortega breaks down everything. I came to class Friday having never coded before in my life. Now I feel completely prepared to take the board exam. So if you decide to try this out (and if your in a position like me, you have no reason not to) don’t be scared to take a chance. You have a real opportunity to succeed in this career field. Full disclosure, if you don’t complete the pre work and homework, this board exam will be very hard. It’s literally a coding boot camp up here in Dallas. So be prepared to tear your hair out and and thank Mrs. Ortega for it in the end. A few headaches and short term pain will be worth it for a new career and a long term happiness
All I can say is WOW!!! I took the 3 day medical coding course with Mrs. Ortega and it was well worth it! The course was June 15th-17th, June 30th I took the exam and on July 6th my results showed I PASSED!!! The time, hard work and the help of Mrs. Ortega made it possible. Thank you Mrs. Ortega, next up CRC!! 🙌🏽
I just took the 3 day CPC class in Chicago. It was as amazing as I knew it would be. Mrs. Ortega is an amazing teacher. She explains it in such a way where you trying to figure out how easily it is for you to understand something that seems so hard. I would definitely recommend this class if you are looking for a CPC class.

Hello fellow Coders, future coders and MCA family! I have some great news that I would like to share that might encourage someone that’s reading this post. Before I share the news I have to tell the complete story as to why this is a big deal for me. Many of you know or have read my previous post about my recent success ( taking Mrs. Ortega’s 3 Day CPC prep course and passing the board exam on the 4th day ) through the Medical Coding Academy in January of this year. I had shared a little bit of my story about how I had taken the CPC exam a couple of times ( prior to attending Mrs. Ortega’s 3 Day CPC course ) and failed. What I didn’t say, was that i had already been working as a Medical Coder for roughly a year and a half. When I got hired I was made aware that I must have my coding certification within 1 year of employment or I would loose my job because the organization only wanted individuals that are certified . I was also made aware that once I became certified I would get a promotion. I took on the challenge because I was certain that I could get my certification within 1 year. At that time I was enrolled in a coding program at a local technical college. When I took the CPC exam for the first time and failed I was about 6 months into employment. This happened at the end of the year which meant tests were limited and most test sites were already at capacity. I waited about 3-4 more months before I re-took the CPC exam the second time and failed. At that point the pressure was really weighing heavy on me because I knew that I had to get that certification in order to keep my job and I was rapidly approaching my 1 year of employment/deadline. At my 1 year evaluation I was given an extension on getting my certification. That’s when I sought the Medical Coding Academy. You know the rest of the story but, I honestly feel like MCA was a blessing to me and I am/will be forever grateful the experience and the time/effort that Mrs. Ortega puts into her students. The great news that I want to share with you all is that I recently received my promotion and my supervisor gave me a “ shout out” this week at our morning huddle for my name being listed under the “Magna Cum Laude “ section of this months AAPC magazine ( was going to add the pic that I took of my name in the magazine but I don’t see the option to add an attachment/picture). It was a great feeling to be recognized and well worth the stress and anxiety. Lol.. Sorry, for the extensive post but, I felt like it was necessary and I hope that my story might encourage someone who’s in doubt or feeling discouraged. I also want to mention that I recently registered for the CPMA ( Certified Professional Medical Auditor) through MCA. Wish me luck and stay tuned for another successful story. Be blessed y’all!!
I PASSED!!!!!!!!! Recently I completed Mrs. Ortega’s 3-day CPC course followed by the exam on the fourth day in March 2018. Mrs. Ortega’s class is amazing and a godsend. I have no medical background at all and passed the CPC certification exam with an 86% and am now a certified coder with career options. To give you some background, I have taken the certification exam twice, the first time I did not completely follow Mrs. Ortega’s direction and ended up running out of time. Whenever I would get to the correct answer in less than 30 seconds, and you will, I would second guess myself and go the long way around to verify if the answer was correct. I did myself a disservice by doing this and ran out of time with 30 questions left that I had to randomly guess at. This time around, I followed Mrs. Ortega’s instruction to the letter; I got to the right answer in less than 30 seconds on most of the questions, did not second guess myself and trusted Mrs. Ortega and finished the exam with about 40 minutes to spare. I recommend Mrs. Ortega’s 3-day CPC coding course to anyone interested in becoming certified and asking you to believe what she is telling you, it is all true. The 3-day class is a lot of work, but has a huge payoff. Mrs. Ortega would say, “A short term pain for a long term gain.” This is very true and can change your life.
I'm so glad I chose Medical Coding Academy. It is "the" place to get fully well- prepared for the CPC exam. Ms.Ortega is truly the most caring and understanding teacher I've ever met. She goes above and beyond for her students. I can't thank her and the MCA staff enough. 😊😊
