My name is Danita Ruszkowski. I am a CPC, CPC-I (instructor) and COBGC through AAPC. I have over ten years of direct billing and coding experience. I teach Medical Coding along with certified coding assistants. At Integrity Coding, the goal is to teach our students the fundamental knowledge of medical coding at a fair and affordable cost.
Integrity Coding instructs on Medical Coding Methods and preparing for the Medical Coding Exam. keeping our class sizes small I am able to provide individual attention to our students, therefore allowing greater time for teacher student interaction and learning.

I took an on line CPC course to help me with passing the CPC exam. I failed the exam. I was so discouraged and took a year off from studying. I came across integrity coding. I first attended one of Danita’s “free” coding classes. I immediately fell in love with Danita and the way she taught. I signed up for her 16 week coding course. The course was awesome. It’s great when you get your “ah ha”moment. You’re like “YES” I got this, I understand. It is very important that you do the homework that is asked of you and that you are prepared when Danita goes over it in class. I took the CPC exam for a second time in November and passed. I was so excited. I am so grateful to Danita. She is a great teacher and mentor. I will continue to take additional classes from Danita. Thank You Rebecca Texas
"When I first met Mrs. Danita I had already went to a two year college for Medical Billing and Coding. I didn’t feel like I learned anything. I also took a refresher course and I felt like I was getting it a little bit. I started attending Mrs. Danita’s Boot Camps and then I felt like there might be hope for me after all. She is VERY thorough. If you do not get something she will go over it with you until you understand. If she hears in your voice or see in your eyes that you’re not getting it she will not move on. She will try to explain it another way if you do not get it the first time. That’s what I LOVE about her. I love that she goes up and beyond. I love that she goes over the guidelines. She will tell you what you need to highlight, underline and also give you notes to write into your books that would be helpful during the test. Usually I get burnt out with too much information but the way she gives me the information makes me want to keep learning. After 3 hour Boot Camps with her I am looking for more. I don’t want to stop. I purchase her recordings and I have to make myself to go to bed at night. After I pass my exam I will still continue to listen to Mrs. Danita’s Boot Camps because I am always learning something new".

I recently attended Mrs. Danita's Boot Camp and it was very thorough. My questions did not go unanswered. I had another "ah ha" moment, like I always do when she explains the information that is being presented to us. I feel like I will be ready to take my CPC certification before the year is over. If you have not tried any of her classes, please don't hesitate. Classes fill up rather quickly and she will address all of your concerns. Note: Do not be afraid to let her know your troubled areas. She will help you until you become comfortable with what it is that your having trouble with. I'm a living witness to that.
When I came to integrity coding I had just completed a local community college Medical Coding program but still did not feel comfortable with Medical coding books. A lot of the content of the books still felt foreign to me. I had difficulty understanding the proper sequencing of ICD-10 and CPT coding. I was always frustrated because I regularly chose the wrong code when working on AAPC Practice tests. Danita and Integrity coding changed all that. I enrolled in her boot camp, and she took the time to teach me the ICD-10 and CPT guidelines. We worked through practice test questions and NEVER moved on to the next question until she was sure I understood WHY we arrived at the answer. In short, Danita helped me make sense of my medical coding books with a heavy emphasis on the guidelines. You learn very quickly that the Guidelines are the key to medical coding and that knowing the guidelines are what separates successful coders from frustrated coders. Danita is an extremely positive person who truly believes all her students will succeed. Her classes are a place of positivity, and she gives her students the confidence to succeed and believe you can pass your CPC certification exam. She engages her students and challenges them to work through Physician cases and practice exams until you have the right answer, and you KNOW 100% that the answer is correct! I spent 15 years working in a different career field. I walked into Danita's class unsure if I could pass the CPC certification and take on a new career. I left her class with the confidence that I could succeed. Today I work in the healthcare field as a medical coder. I am so thankful I signed up for classes with integrity coding.

"Enrolling in integrity coding's 8hour online class was one of the best choices I could have made as a first time medical coding student enrolled in a distant online program. Danita's step by step approach and chapter specific coding tips make coding a breeze through even for new comers. The 150 question practice tests prepared me well ahead with time management to face the certification exam with confidence. Thanks to Danita; I passed my CPC in the very 1st try with 30 minutes to spare".

I took Danita Ruszkowski's online medical coding class last fall. Having never taken an online course before, I wasn't sure what to expect in terms of the quality of the teaching and the focus of the students. But, after the first class I realized any concerns I had were unfounded. First, I don't think I'm too far off the mark when I say that, while there may be other teachers who match Danita's knowledge of medical coding, there can't be anyone who surpasses her. Equally important was the manner in which she communicated that knowledge. Classes were well structured with time split between going over homework problems, reading and discussing new textbook material, and providing a general question-and-answer session. And Danita made sure everyone participated in these discussions, whether they wanted to or not! Yet, despite the structure, Danita's sense of humor and obvious concern for her students allowed for a relaxed environment in which people were encouraged to help one another understand the material and not be afraid to ask questions. And I want to place emphasis on Danita's concern for her students. It was obvious that she wanted nothing more than for her students to leave the course with a solid understanding of medical coding and an excellent chance of passing the certification exam. Students can't ask anything more than that from their teacher. Unfortunately, a family accident prevented me from taking the medical coding exam at the end of 2017. But I look forward to taking it in the not-too-distant future. I'm guessing I'll need to take the Integrity Coding course again, but I look forward to that as well. In summary, I highly recommend Integrity Coding and I urge anyone with an eye on becoming a medical coder to enroll in Danita's course.

"I truly believe that I would not have been able to pass my CPC without the help of Danita Ruszkowski and her training classes. Danita is an amazing teacher and person and she taught me so much. My score on the exam went from a 64 to a 77 after taking her course. I highly recommend taking Danita's classes before sitting through the exam. It is a must"!!
Thank you Danita for everything!! You are amazing.

Feeling Confident Again!!!
I came across Ms. Danita’s program after losing my job as a Biller and a Coder. I did my externship at a cardiology clinic and for a month, I was on their payroll until they laid me off saying that they were hiring an experienced cardiology coder. I had lost all hope. I started looking for jobs that would hire an entry level biller and/or coder and there wasn’t too many. I came across Ms. Danita’s courses and I felt like God answered my prayers. I started off with her free classes and then I started paying for her classes. I have to admit, I wish that I would have found her a year earlier. I would have come out a lot cheaper and probably have my certification and working on the next one. She a person with knowledge and she’s very intelligent. What I was taught in school versus what I’m being taught now is so amazing and I can’t talk about Integrity Coding enough. She stress about knowing the guidelines. In school, we were never told to focus on the guidelines the way she stresses it. I feel way more confident that I will pass my certification on the first try. I’m feeling more confident as I go along. She’s very thorough. You ask a question, she will go over it. She takes her time. She will go over it until you get it. She will never tell you “oh, if you didn’t get it, too bad”. I will continue to take her courses and get more certifications.

Danita is great at what she does. She takes pride in teaching, and assures everyone gets a thorough understanding of the material. She takes her time to make sure everything is explained, and gets to have fun while she does it. She is truly a great individual. I highly recommend her instructional prep classes. At the end of the class you are able to take with you lots of information and techniques not taught in school. Thank you Danita, Yaritza
