Medical Assistant (Former Employee) –  Portsmouth, VAAugust 28, 2016
Chesapeake Government Health contracted with military facility, therefore working on military bases was different than working in the civilian sector. A day at work was pretty straight forward, prep patients for the day, retrieving documents from other clinics was pretty easy because everything was located within the same building, all I had to do is just go to a certain floor. The RN were very helpful and clinic ended in a timely manner. The clinic run very smoothly.
As far as management/co-workers everyone pitched in where needed if need be, this is the making of a well ran clinic, on one felt they were above each other it is all about getting the job done.

High managerial turnover rate
Government Contractor/Medical Assistan (Former Employee) –  Naval Medical Center PortsmouthApril 18, 2014
This is a government contractor that took over a previous contractor I worked for. When the contract was awarded to Chesapeake Government Health Services the pay was drastically cut, we were forced to purchase insurance, there was little to no communication between the office and employees, the only person that was trying to help the employees either quit or was replaced. Just in the short time I was employed by them there were several people were either repositioned or replaced, therefore our point of contact was unknown at most times.

The office I worked in, Internal Medicine Clinic, at Naval Medical Center Portsmouth, however, was quite an enjoyable place. My manager was awesome and my co-workers like family. We worked together to get our patients taken care of.
Pros
None
Cons
no communication, pay cut, high office turnover

I believe they must have filled out their own reviews, they have very poor communication with even the most professional employees.
Pulm FNP/prior owners contract 3 yrs. (Former Employee) –  Dayton, OhioApril 11, 2014
This is a medical professional FNP review. The poorest communication and poorest treatment I have received in my greater than 10 + yrs experience. They bid low on government contracts and then subcontract them all out. They did not pay my subcontractor for my position and subcontractor took them to court. The result, Chesapeake had me walked out of my Patient schedule in the middle of the day after 4.5 years at this AFB because they owned the contract and chose to show their ownership of the contract to the subcontractor instead of consideration patients who were booked with me for a full month.
Was with the Air Force Base with previous owners of contracts and was treated with respect and always sold to subcontractor. However, the subcontractors appreciate the good support of good Providers and took good care of me.
Chesapeake is not a company I would ever recommend to anyone even if they sell your contract to subcontractor, they still have the power over your contract. The Air Force base lung cancer and pulmonary patients were left without a provider and all appts were cancelled due to lack of Pulmonologists in the Air Force. DO NOT TRUST THEM!!!

Most of all their lack of respect or concern for the most ill of patients is the most concerning, I am highly sought out professional and will be able to get a job, but my patients will have a very hard time finding someone to take care of them due to the shortage of pulmonary providers. My patients were simply a pawn in their court battle with the subcontractor and they could have cared less.
Pros
None
Cons
Poor behavior of hr and contracting.
