I loved my job and worked very very hard with approximately 30 min break out of a 10 -11 hour day. I enjoyed my patients very much and in return they loved me. I would do anything that was asked of me to help the medical facility to lesson the load for the other employees. I got along with the other employees and was always ready to help them with their work. I never was late or missed a day unless I was on vacation. I loved the blood and lab work so much that I was always researching different test and the anatomy of the body as well as different techniques that would make the blood specimens as accurate as they could be. I was always learning new things and felt like I could never learn enough. The down side is that the practice was so unorganized that it kept the entire staff walking on egg shells.me. I have been a business owner my entire life until I moved to Florida 6-1/2 years ago so I know how to manage a work place as well as employees. I had never experienced such poor management in my life. Our manager would chew us out in front of other employees as well as patients. My upper manager as well as my immediate manager never told us we did anything right but almost daily would correct us for something we had done wrong. I was accused of so many things that I did not even know about but they would not let you defend yourself. You had to just take the blame. In one year all the employees that had been there as long as 12 years either got fired or quit. We all got to where the pressure was so strong that we could not preform our jobs to the best of our ability in fearmore... of getting in trouble. One manager would tell us to do things one way and the other manager would tell us to do it another. It became unbearable. I had worked there 4-1/2 years and never got a raise. It had been 8 years since anyone got a raise.less
Monthly bonuses, Free lunches and occasionally breakfast, Did not have to pay for Doctor appointments, very close to my home, all the employees got along and helped each other, great work hours Monday thru Friday with paid holidays as well as 3 weeks vacation a year
Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Allen, TX – November 9, 2015
a typical work day is starting your morning off getting the papers from the fax machine, and pulling the charts to go with the papers from the fax. Then when patients start coming in you call the patients back and get their vitals and things and then room the patients. Then the doctor tells you if she wants any kind of test done and if she does then you go get the test done on that patient. Then you do that all day until closing then you go and round up the trash and clean the rooms.

Assistant Administrator/Referral Coordinator (Current Employee) – Lawton, OK – September 7, 2016
Family Medical Center is an enjoyable place to work. We have amazing patients along with an amazing staff. We start our day about 7:30 and may not finish until 5:00. Our staff gets along with everyone, it is like working for your family away from home. I think the hardest part of my job is when my referrals are taking some time to be schedule because most of the offices in Lawton are busy as well. The most enjoyable part of my job is I am able to help patients and I get to see their face light up when I have accomplished helping them.
Emergency Medical Technician (Current Employee) – San Angelo, TX – July 22, 2016
Vital signs and patient lab test results, assist in minor surgeries, prepare and submit administrative reports and provide training to junior staff meetings. I've learned self-aid buddy care and first responder care. I work first hand with Diabetic patients and Acupuncture. The hardest part of my job is getting to the know my patients. I always tend to get close with patient just to eventually deploy or move to another location for the military. The part I enjoy most of my job is helping my patients and learning new information from my doctor.

Front Desk Clerk (Former Employee) – Lawton, OK – May 31, 2016
Working at the clinic was a positive experience and enjoyable work enviorment. All employees were encouraged to be pleasant to eachother and patients. As a staff, we were always busy but stayed on top of tasks that needed to be done for the day. I admired how flexible they were when it came to upcoming appointments and events. Senior staff were very patient when it came to me learning how to check patients in and out and also accepting copays.
I enjoyed my job very much and all my job requirements. But, management was so poor that it made your job and performance very difficult because they were on your backs all the time. Even though I knew my job very well, my 2 managers would try to micro manage something they knew nothing about. One would tell you to do it one way and the other would tell you to do it another, therefore, to them it was never done right. They loved writing you up for thing that were so insignificant that you felt like you were in elementary school. There was a total lack of organization so the facility never ran smoothly. The way you learned anything there, was to get written up and you didn't even know that it was something you were or were not supposed to do. It was always the blame game. My immediate supervisor rarely took responsibility for her mistakes and would blame it on an employee. Total chaos and confusion. Stress level stayed so high with all the employees.
Monthly bonuses, free lunches and occasionally breakfast, 3 weeks vacation and paid holidays, wonderful work hours

A typical day at work: Busy and challenging What I learned: My employer is not loyal to their employee's. Management: My manager is not loyal to the employee's. My co-workers: Hard working and dedicated towards their patients. The Hardest part of my job: Keeping a head of the phone triage and medication refills. The most enjoyable part of the job: Rooming patients and building relationships with the patients.
Medical Office Assistant (Current Employee) – Salisbury, NC – June 8, 2015
I have worked in a medical office for almost 20 years. 15 years at my current employer. He has decided to close his practice so I am actively seeking full-time employment. I love coming to work, and helping people. A typical day for me includes, checking people in for appointments and checking them out after appointments. I put in all new patient data, and bill the claims to all insurances. I also schedule appointments, test and procedures, I also am in charge of prior authorizations for procedures and medications. I send prescriptions electronically,and I prepare lab slips. I am very efficient in medical terminology and, ICD-9 and CPT Coding. In my present position the one thing I learned was to do EKG'S, I have 2 co-workers, and we work well together. I think the hardest part of my job sometimes would be trying to get authorizations for test and medications from insurance companies, The most enjoyable part is when everything runs smoothly and I can call the patients that everything was approved.
Migrant Health LPN (Current Employee) – Geneva, NY – July 8, 2016
Working at the Center for Recovery is a humbling work environment. This work is one of the most rewarding. It's helping a different type of ill person. As a health care professional you learn to see how medicine is more then just physical, this gives you the whole mind body and soul experience to medicine.
Starting in 2001 as an office clerk I was assigned simple office tasks. During my summers off from my undergraduate studies I increased my experience after being promoted to medical assistant. in 2010 after graduating I became the Office Manager of Family Medicine, PA until the time of sale in 2015.

Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Copperas Cove, TX – May 17, 2016
Working at Family Medicine Clinic in Texas was my first Medical Assisting job. I learned so many skills from working there. I enjoyed this job so much because it was not just for a paycheck - I not only gained some of the best friendships, but the interaction and relationships that I had with the patients are all so memorable.
Clinic Coordinator (Former Employee) – Vicksburg, MS – July 25, 2016
Very busy medical clinic with 2 MD's, and a Nurse Prac. Usual day included 80+ patients, urgent walk-ins. Great co-workers but management was spread out among 2 clinics and hospital which was sometimes vague and confusing. Overall great place.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – College Park, GA – April 29, 2016
Meeting patients checking their vitals and make sure their visit is as comfortable as possible. I learned how important to take care of your body. The management team is awesome they all play a very important role and excellent teamwork. The hardest part of the job was getting attach to the patients. The most enjoyable part of the job was able help a sick person well again.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – College Park, GA – June 17, 2016
Family Medical Center was a great place to learn the basics and some vbery important things about being a medical assistant. The doctor was very hands on during my externship there and he did a lot of teaching.
Great coworkers and love being involved in teaching the residents
LVN (Current Employee) – Lubbock, TX – June 4, 2015
A typical day includes seeing up to 13 patients every morning and/or afternoon and providing holistic care to patients that range in age from "cradle to grave". I have learned so many skills and seen aspects of nursing care that I didn't have the opportunity to experience in nursing school. I work with some really great people and great managers. The hardest part of the job is that sometimes the workload is heavy and it can be trying to get everything done in a timely fashion without sacrificing any part of my job. Patient care is, of course, the first priority, but it is the things behind the scene which support the care I give that I have to be able to handle that makes me realize I need more hours in the day! Prioritizing and multi-tasking are a must to be successful in completing all the work that needs to be accomplished. In addition to that though, I make sure to be a team player, helping my co-workers so that we can get everything done that's expected of us. Teamwork makes the dream work! I enjoy almost all aspects of my job. If I can make one person feel better everyday than I feel like I have done my job to the best of my ability.
Pay isn't as high as I wish and there's rarely opportunity for advancement.
