Medical Assistant/Office Manager (Current Employee) – Waterloo, IA – December 26, 2013
No job advancement otherwise it was an ok place to work. The hardest part of the job was being able to deal with some of the upper management people trying to tell you what to do when they don't walk a day in your shoes so they don't have a clue what it's like.
Busy office but wonderful company to work for. So happy!!!
Front Desk Receptionist (Current Employee) – Waterloo, IA – April 2, 2016
I answer phones and direct calls to nurses and/or make appointments. We have a compassionate office and care of our patients. My co-workers are the best. We are a busy office so the hardest part about my job is staying calm when there are many irons in the fire but on down time, we like to have fun. The management is top of the line. I enjoy going to work every day

Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Waterloo, IA – October 9, 2014
Wages and advancement with this company are horrible. This company pledges to be the largest specialty in the cedar valley but it paying less than non medical jobs. There is no reimbursement for scrubs and the policies are very rigid and a lot of times do not make sense.
Radiographer and student preceptor (Current Employee) – Waterloo, IA – May 20, 2014
During clinic's with up to 3 providers at once, performed a multitude of radiographic exams for orthopedic surgeons. Provided patient care and counseled patients in pain to gain trust in the radiographic process. Taught students radiographic procedures and working with patients in pain. Learned to think out side the box in order to obtain x-rays on patients unable to go through the normal procedures. Learned to multitask with orders, students, and patients during fast paced work. Very personal and medically knowledgeable coworkers. Multiple doctor clinics requiring multiple x-rays, teaching students, and working with patients in pain while keeping with the pace of the clinic. Most enjoyable part of the job is gaining trust of patients and watching student development continuously.
Caring coworker and employer environment.
When doctors do not have clinc, there is no need for x-ray, thus no work.
