"My Career Services advisor is Moniqua Mccullough she provided the best tips on interviewing techniques and feedback on my resume. She kept my motivated at all times. She provided me with information for dress for success which I loved. Moniqua stayed in contact with me after my intern and made sure I was working and in a comfortable working environment. I will be continuing my education with the school to do the associates program which she highly recommend and provided great feedback on."

"From the very beginning the people at The College of Health Care Professions have been by my side the whole time. I will have to say that before I enrolled I tried very hard to enroll in the Medical and Billing Program at Houston Community College. I know this is not a review to bash another education institute but I had no help with getting enrolled or having someone to call me back with questions. I felt as if they did not care if I enrolled or not. The student advisors and the counselors were there when I needed them. And even after being out of school for close to 30 years, they treated me as if I was a freshman out of high school. I was encouraged and was called periodically to make sure I was heading in the right direction. I am almost sad that my time will end soon but I know that I am going to take what I have learned from CHCP into my career and strive to be the best."

"My Career Services advisor is Judy Morris. She has been absolutely amazing - and patient! Judy has given me the best tips on interviewing techniques and has really built up my confidence. Now that I am finishing up my externship, she has stayed in contact with me to help make sure that I am on track at my externship site and that I am up to date on my resume and ready to take the next step out in the real world! She has given me several places to apply for my new career and she is by my side to support me with any questions I have and to calm my nerves and keep my confidence up in spite of my fears."

"I started with as an online student in 2017 and graduated with my certification in Medical coding and billing in 2018. Then after I completed that program I went on to start and complete the MA program and I graduated with my certification in 2019. It gives me the best opportunity to work, take care of my child and continue my education to better my family. Soon i am to start again in January for my associate's and now not only am I a student and previous graduate, I am currently a ground instructor for the San Antonio south campus for Medical coding and billing. I refer my friends and family to this school and what they have to offer."

"CHCP Dallas is an incredible school for anyone who wants to start in the health field. I am a retired registered nurse who wanted a new career as a Medical Coder and Biller. The course are thorough and perpare you for any medical field. I thought my Biology and Pathology courses at Baylor University in 1977 were tough, these courses are very detailed and specific. The Coding and Insurance courses were good and thorough. All of the stafff at CHCP Dallas want every student to succeed, they greet you personally and are always available to help."

"I am attending the CHCP Southwest Houston Campus, and I am currently enrolled in the Medical Coding and Billing Blended Program. All I can say is stay away. I am confident the goal of this school is to make money and a lot of it. From the start I was lied to. I was told I would be prepared and sitting for the CPC exam upon completion of the program. I found out later that was not true. I would be sitting for a national certification exam, however if you search the acronym online for the certification you will find it is unknown and not what employers are looking for. Furthermore the program itself is a joke, for a lack of better terminology. The courses are done in 4 weeks mods, when I began my second mod I was thrown in with students that were completing their 5th or 6th mod. I was doing coursework that was meant for people that had attended school for 6 months. I am now in my last mod and I am being assigned coursework that I already completed in my 2nd mod. I have yet to actually learn anything from an actual instructor. The information that I have learned I sought from forums and online tutors outside of the school because I am taking this career choice very seriously. I made several complaints I even went up to the president of the school. Let's just say everyone covers each other's back at this school when it comes to staff. The director of the program has flat out lied to students and one instructor can't even pronounce the terminology she has been given a job to teach. Please stay away from this school it is a complete waste of your time and money. I am blaming myself I should have done better research but if you want to become a medical coder and biller take the courses that are offered at AAPC. I paid $17,000 dollars for a complete scam of an education."

"*BEWARE* If you are interested in a school that will lie to your face, cheat you out of a good education, and steal your money, the CHCP Austin campus is the school for you! We have had to endure four teachers within a six month period, none of which have taught us. The accepted method of "teaching" is reading through slides and sections of the chapters word for word, mispronouncing words (both basic English and medial terminology) left & right, not going over the assigned homework so that you know what is incorrect and how to find the correct answer, no direction, assigning workbook/computer assignments without even going over the corresponding chapter, etc., etc., I go could on and on... On three separate occasions the books we needed were on back order, one book we did not receive until the 4th week of the MOD. Each MOD is 5 weeks, so we did not learn anything that we were supposed to be taught for that subject. We did not receive our coding books until a week after the MOD began, but we were given homework assignments with no book to use. We have taught ourselves what will be asked of us upon entering the field. God willing, we have taught ourselves correctly. We have spoken to the Director of Education and the Campus President on numerous occasions regarding the issues but nothing has changed nor does it appear that they are concerned. The classroom has a damaged dry erase board that can not be used at all, the chairs are extremely uncomfortable, the tables in the lunch room have fallen on several occasions but they have money to purchase new signs to put throughout the halls so that they can present themselves in a better way while giving prospective students a tour of the campus. The majority of what we were told from the advisors has been false! The solution that was presented to us is that they would give us an Assessment Test to determine what areas we are lacking in and then add those into the review classes during our externship period which is every Friday for 5 weeks, so a total of 5 days to provide us with the education that was promised to us and should have been received during the correct previous MOD's as well as preparing us for our certification exams. We have taken the Assessment Tests (we were told that it would be one customized test but it ended up being 3 tests which took us 2 days, a total of 12 hours to not even fully finish) 3 weeks ago and we still have not received the results back. Our review class is due to start in 2 weeks. There is only 5 tests! This has been an extremely stressful situation that has caused us to lose our faith, drive, and thousands of dollars! Please take my advice and look into other schools before choosing CHCP. No one deserves what we have to experience!"
