So exactly, how much does a medical assistant make?

It may take a few years of gaining clinical experience for their talent to be recognized and rewarded financially. At that point, it is not unusual for an MA to make over $30,000. In some cases, typically in areas that are lacking the profession, MAs make upwards of $50,000. However, salary in this range is an exception rather than the rule. more details >
