Service & Support Technician (Current Employee) – Lansing, IL – March 26, 2014
Ive learned to work with different types of people. While being sensitive to patient and customer needs. Co workers are loving and friendly. Managment needs some work. Hardest part of the day is not getting recognized for hard work that is done by myself. most enjoable part of the job is knowing that I've helped someone.
So, this company hires aides to work with patients in which to perform therapy that only a Licensed physical therapist or licensed physical therapy assistant is ONLY legal to do??? And you pay them $10/hr?? This is MEDICARE FRAUD! in which will be reported immediately!
Do not work for this compamy unless you are planning for your license to be suspended!
Rehabilitation Technician (Former Employee) – Roscoe, IL – August 22, 2016
I assisted multiple patients through various exercises. Was able to learn NEXTGEN computer systems working as a receptionist during slow times. Enjoyed watching the therapist maneuver then patient and manipulate their body to regain full function and abilities.
Physical Therapy Technician (Former Employee) – Bridgeport, IL – July 18, 2016
Great place to learn skills that will be utilized in PT and PTA school. High patient volume and case load with quick turn over of patients. Primarily outpatient orthopedics with some specialties at some sites.
Rehabiliation Aide (Former Employee) – USA – January 21, 2016
Too much was expected from the Rehab Aide with little pay and benefits. I wasted my time at this dead end job. On top of that, the PTs didn't do most of the work we did and had to audacity to act condescending because they had a license and doctorate, a doctorate, not a M.D. They used this to boss aides around, belittle them, and insult their intelligence making working at the facility very uncomfortable . Very unprofessional. The best part about the job was building a rapport with clients and seeing them progress through the exercises we gave them not the the actual therapy the PT did. Advise to others. Think twice about working here.
Rehab Tech/Personal Trainer (Current Employee) – Athletico Bolingbrook East – February 25, 2016
I have worked with Athletico for almost a year as a rehab aide, we strive to be a well oiled machine as di so very well. I hope to continue to stay as needed or find a long term position with this great company.
Office Coordinator (Current Employee) – Illinois – November 24, 2015
Poor management, especially regionally. Poor benefits for the people who actually keep the company going. Poor advancement opportunities unless you are on the "favorites list." They do not value hard working individuals; they do not appreciate any work above and beyond. I would stay away!
Office Coordinator/ technician (Current Employee) – Merrillville, IN – August 14, 2015
My work day included completing daily and weekly spreadsheets, managing visits and authorizations, contacting case managers/adjustors daily, scheduling, answering phones, handling monies, assisting PT with patient exercises, modalities, cleaning tables, washing laundry, opening and closing procedures. Accelerated was recently acquired by Athletico and in the changing over process, found it would be more beneficial for a full time office coordinator. Hence, looking for a new career path.
Great workplace with chances to grow in my knowledge of patient care.
Rehabilitation Aide (Current Employee) – Buffalo Grove, IL – April 6, 2016
Work both with therapist and patients. Schedule patient visits and evaluations. Guide patients through exercise programs. File documents into computer system. Make sure the clinic is in order and clean for patient use.
Learned: How to work with patients. How to communicate in a clinic setting. Rehabilitation exercises and abbreviations. How to file documents and record insurances.
Management: Under supervision of therapist and office coordinator. Task are left up to me with minimal supervision. Office coordinator works directly with me in the administration work while therapist work with me in the rehabilitation work.
Co-Workers: Given the hours there is very little overlap between aides. But given the supervision of the therapist and OC relationships are built and we have learned to communicate properly to one another.
Hardest part about the job is managing time and staying ahead. Generally to to the way the clinic books patients, the clinic gets busy at specific times and as an aide it is important to manage those times and the time prior in order for high levels of success.
Most enjoyable part is the community. Community of the therapist and patients. We all get to know each other super well and the relationships you build make this an excellent job.
Certified Athletic Trainer (Current Employee) – Chicago IL – July 7, 2015
Has many good contracts with schools and athletic clubs, allows for a wide variety of coverage. Some management is great to work with. With the merger of Athletico and Accelerated things are a little crazy but they are being worked out.
A lot of opportunities for different coverage.
Poor work life balance, lack of control over schedule.
Medical Biller/Patient Financial Coordinator (Current Employee) – Michigan Billing Center – July 2, 2015
This is an excellent company to work for they the largest Physical Therapy company in the United States currently with clinics in 7 states. My day consists of answering the patient phone calls, taking payments, applying payments, balancing accounts, Sending out documentation when requested to Attorneys, sending out claims with necessary documentation Doing collection calls as needed on past due accounts and set up payment plans We have a small office at this location but my co-workers are very helpful and we all get along very good My director Supervisor is very helpful and very easy to talk to The hardest part of my job is when a patient doesn't like the services they have received and do not want to pay their bill. The most enjoyable part of my job is when I know I have helped a patient to understand their bill or just listened when they are having financial difficulties and unable to pay
Great place to work If interested in Physical Therapy
Rehabilitation Aide (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – March 25, 2015
This place was amazing. I had the pleasure of working in 2 locations, one in the city of chicago and one in the suburbs. This job is great because you actually do the exercises with patients and learn why you make them do it. Physical Therapists are generally fun and are not uptight so the atmosphere in the clinic is great. You need to be able to handle 3-4 tasks at one time such as, scheduling a patient, answering the phone, cleaning, or getting something ready for the therapist. I had a great experience with these people, some will become your good friends!
Office Associate (Former Employee) – Kenosha, WI – May 6, 2015
The management at the corporate office was very good. They made the work place a very good one. The was not a hard part of the job as long as the job was done right. The most enjoyable part was that we were all friends and so it made the day go by easier.
Senior Rehabilitation Aide (Former Employee) – Naperville, IL – January 2, 2015
A typical day was moving around a lot and helping physical therapists take patients through exercises. This was a high energy environment and double booking patients happened regularly. with six physical therapists working at my location we got very busy which meant a lot of the time i was working with multiple patients at a time. The days went by fast due to how busy we always were. The best part of this job was getting to know the patients and watching them progress in their recovery each week.
