Registered Medical Assistant (Current Employee), Glen Ellyn, IL – June 10, 2015
My typical day starts with getting the rooms, the doctors supplies and my charts ready for the day. In pediatrics, especially during the summer, I do mostly check ups, in the winter its mostly sick visits. – more... I call the patient back and begin by getting vitals and obtaining any tests necessary. In our department we rely heavily on team work. MA's and nurses have their own role and duties but we all pitch in to help make the unit run smoothly. The managers are all very approachable and keep an open door policy so its always easy to talk to them. The hardest and most enjoyable part of my job is the kids. There are a lot of little personalities that walk through that door, some kids are happy to be at the doctors office and some are not. I feel truly rewarded when we are able to turn the unhappy kids into happy kids, sick kids into healthy kids and unhappy parents into happy parents that have actually enjoyed bringing their children to the doctors office. I really do enjoy my job and role in the pediatric department. The reason I'm choosing to look at other positions is because I've been in the same department since I graduated from school and I feel like its time to expand myself and my knowledge as a professional. – less
Management (Former Employee), Downers Grove, IL – April 21, 2015
Cons: No respect for employees
This was a horrible place to work for; you are paid very low and never acknowledged for the hard work you do. Employees are given very low raises yet cuts are never made to the salaries of those in the – more... C suite. No women have high positions and productivity standards are unrealistic. The motto is "we care for you" but they do not care for their employees. All they want to do is get bigger and bigger and the phone systems are horrible because they are too big. I was told I would be on hold for a minute trying to get a referral after 35 minutes I hung up. – less

Adm/Recptionist (Former Employee), Downers Grove – April 7, 2015
Pros: Suitable location and clean office
Cons: Training and courtesy was horrible
I was so excited when I got the call for the position and was looking forward to learning their new system I went in with a positive attitude and left with my sanity. This company looks good on the outside, – more... however once in, it’s a mess. My best suggestion to all seeking employment especially for this Toxic company read two books it will enlighten your next search. 1) RISING ABOVE A TOXIC WORKPLACE. 2) THE NARCISSISM EPIDEMIC .
There were so many red flags I tried to justify from the interview to the orientation. The orientation is filled with promises and false hope, explaining what a great company it is to work for. Wishing you good luck and stating to you that you have 90 days to learn the job. Once you’re assigned to an office all the lies and deceptions seem to snake in. I consider myself an intelligent person who does not care to play games. It felt like I was working in a reality show for fifth grade chatty girls. No matter hard you tried to do your best they always seem to find fault never looking for the good. The only way to clean up there mess is to look within. – less
Certified Medical Assistant for OB/GYN Doctor's (Current Employee), Glen Ellyn – April 2, 2015
Pros: Learing new procedures
Cons: Working for many Doctor's that want something different
My typical day consists of rooming patients taking vitals and enter information into Epic computer system. I am very personable with the patients to make them comfortable with the doctors office. I work – more... well with the staff and clean and stock rooms after use. The hardest part of my job is working for 9 Doctor's who want something different. I love working with the patients and learning new procedures that some of the Doctor's are training me on. – less
DMG Servant (Current Employee), many locations the same – March 31, 2015
Cons: sooo many
This is the worst company I have every been employeed by. The pay is very low, and the medical benefits are terrible. Very high deductible and we can only go to DMG doctors. Ridiculous productivity – more... expectations. I literally run all day from patient to patient with not a moment to even stop and use the bathroom! Quality of patient care suffers terribly due to greed for money and constantly overscheduling patients. If I were a patient I would not return becsuse they are not given fair time and attention due to DMGs policy of overscheduling. This greatly lowers qulity of patient care. So many employees feel used and abused. Suggestion to improve employee and patient satisfaction, don't treat employees like machines. Very greedy organization. They care more abut money than patients or employees. Very high rate of turnover – less
Customer Service Rep (Current Employee), Lisle, IL – March 28, 2015
It is a call center so you come in clock in and take you calls. I have learned so much about the medical field and billing and coding.Management is awesome very understanding and helpful. Co-workers are amazing.The hardest part of the job is confirming you did all the HIPPA laws.The most enjoyable part is help patients with insurance issue and getting them to pay what they should.
Patient accounts (Current Employee), Downers grove – March 18, 2015
Pros: work hours
I love the people I work with, however, You are made to feel like you are in prison. Not allowed to wear lotions, colognes. Cannot talk to your coworkers. If you excel at something you are given way more work than a person that makes the same amount of money you do. They should make the person that isn't pulling their weight to step it up or reward the people that excel.
Physician violated a patient's privacy & I requested a transfer as I did not agree with the physician's behavior. He was notorious for getting staff fired but as he brought in the bulk of money for the – more... establishment HR did not look into countless complaints made by staff. The department I was transferred to was not completely tolerant of my transfer as they were already overstaffed and the staff thought I was a thin Puerto Rican for having a family. During my high risk pregnancy management would staff me at inconsiderate hours so I would have to quit. I was terminated as I was placed on complete bed rest and delivered prematurely.
The work flow was easy and I enjoyed educating patients. – less
Document Management Technician (Current Employee), Downers Grove, IL – January 12, 2015
I have exceeded in productivity in the work place and want to excel in other aspects of the health field industry. I have learned that the quality and not the quantity is what can be an issue. The goal of protecting and respecting the privacies of ones medical history.
Receptionist (Former Employee), Every Location – January 8, 2015
Pros: once you finally left work you were done for the day.
DuPage Medical is an awful place to work. The company has grown too quickly for upper level management to handle, which has compromised the quality of care given. Patients would complain often about this. Expect to be worked to the bone for a 17 cent raise and do not expect to move up within the company. DuPage Medical Group: We Don't Care for You, Just for Your Money.
Treats employees like machines, too many patients at once
DMG slave (Current Employee), Any location all the same – September 16, 2014
Cons: please read my statement
DMG makes a Hugh profit on the backs of their employees which they do not return in compensation. Expect staff to run all day with no breaks or time for lunch. All they care about is the all mighty dollar – more... with no regard to quality of patient care or their staff. No chance for growth as they just focus on billable time and making the most money per patient possible. They would never admit this but quality of patient care is not important tp them, just how much they can make off of them. The work pace is insane for the employees. They make Hugh profit but don't share with the staff. – less
Medical Assistant (Former Employee), Lisle,IL – August 2, 2014
Pros: co-workers and some doctors
Cons: very low pay!!! no breaks!! never recognized for hard work!
No room for advancement at all. Their raise is a joke! I should have picked up on why theirs so many job openings. Now I know why. Their pay sucks. They treat employees bad. Too bad. Maybe if management paid attention to their employees hard work maybe people would actually stay. And pay well!!! Sad because they lose great people for their cheapness and ungratefulness!! Stay Away!!
