If I am doing the work of 2 people, should I be getting paid for both?

I am an ultrasound technician and a 3D/4D/5D location and I normally work by myself. I do the greeting taking registration forms, taking payments, getting clients packages ready, and printing pictures and doing all the office duties. I also have to do the ultrasound sessions that can be up to 30 or more minutes long? and most of the time the people doing the scheduling for the appointments almost always doesn’t give me enough time in between appointments before the next client is here so im rushing and have to deal with clients upset, etc. So I feel as if I’m doing a job that requires 2 people I mean my job title is ultrasound technician not hostess/receptionist/ ultrasound tech? Also, I’ve been training this new technician and just wanted to know if I should be getting paid more to train her to scan right and teach her on how to do 3d/4d/5d ultrasounds?

Unless you have an employment contract or union agreement that covers these issues, you are an "at Wiil" worker. This means that you can be made made to perform the duties that your employer sees fit (absent some form of legally actionable discrimination). Accordingly, you can be required to undetake whatever duties your employer deems necesary and apppropriate.
