Nurse Practitioner (Former Employee) – Williamsville NY – April 8, 2015
A Typical Day at Work: Micromanagement from upper administration constantly. People who have no administrative or business degrees are running this corporation. I don't know how this company has managed as long as they have.
Co-workers - normal people who are constantly being degraded and taken advantage of from every aspect. Medical assistants are taken off the street with no medical background or degrees. They are too cheap to hire nurses to triage calls - so you have people with no medical background making calls that a doctor should be to come in and be evaluated or not....which most of the time is a huge waste of people's co-pays, but with buffalo medical group...it is all about the money!
The hardest part of my job - working for such nasty people who have no heart or could care less about there employees or the patients.
The most enjoyable part of my job - caring for patients and giving the best medical care possible so they don't see the disorganization and disgusting administration behind the scenes of buffalo medical group.
I wasted 5 years of my life with this company and consistently being degraded and taken advantage of. Don't waste your time for working at this place. You will quickly see the disorganization and just over all AWFUL management of this company. If you do work for this company watch out for the administration because they will act like they are your best friends.Then stab you in the back when you least expect it. Most unprofessional individuals I have ever seen run a business.
Doctors and NPs are kind
Forget your lunch hour, time off is a constant struggle, benefits are a joke.

Medical Receptionist/Assistant (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – October 22, 2014
My co-worker and I would check-in over 100 patients a day. We where busy all the time and in between patients we would verify the next day appointments by checking patients insurance information. The hardest part of the day was when patients showed up late for their appointments and I would have to go verify with the doctor's office to see if they would see them. Most of the time the doctor was running behind and they could not see them and I had to inform the patient of that news and to advise the patient to call and reschedule or they can go back and talk to the medical assistant to reschedule. The most enjoyable part of the job was talking to the patients and getting to know them(a lot of them where regulars).

medical billing (Former Employee) – sheridan drive – September 14, 2015
Terrible experience in medical billing department. Unfriendly staff and back stabbers after only a few days of working there. Expected to be a claims representative on a system that just had too many screens to view to find information that should be upfront and easily accessible. Not enough training provided to sufficiently do a medical billing position for even an experienced medical biller. There is not enough staff and the claims are being written off and not followed up on in a timely manner.
Medical Receptionist (Former Employee) – Buffalo, New York – January 29, 2013
I enjoyed the work I did, although it was very limited and you weren't allowed to think on your own. The management was micro at times. The doctors and staff I worked with were great and I made many good friends their.
The hardest part of the job was trying to keep up with rule changes on a weekly basis. The manager of the department was very immature and had difficulty keeping her personal life separate from work.
Patient Representative (Former Employee) – Williamsville, NY – September 15, 2015
Coming in and greet patients that are checking in for various visits. Confirming insurance on Healthy Net ,collecting co pays and past due balances. The management was always in reach if needed. Co- workers were a different kind , but that's what made them unique. The hardest job was telling patients their insurance was no longer valid. The most enjoyable was the smiles on the frequent patients.
direct patient care (Current Employee) – williamsville – April 6, 2015
The management is out of touch. Facilities are dirty, understaffed and outdated. I honestly have nothing good to say about BMG as a company outside of the rate of pay. It is a shortsighted company with a bad attitude towards its employees and garbage benefits.
Medical Records Clerk (Former Employee) – Buffalo, NY – April 11, 2012
This company was a joy to work for they are very strict on attendance. They give you the opportunity to work in different departments of this company and give you a broader span for advancement within.
