Gastro One is a great place to work right out of school. Gastro One is not a place however if you want to advance your career. if you are content with staying in the same spot then this is a job for you.
A very fast pace office that is focused on putting the needs of patients first, by providing excellent care, while staying current with technology. There are several locations that located through out the city which is convenient for the patients.

Great place to work and very nice employees. Everyone is very helpful and they are always willing to help where its needed. The managers are also very supportive and easy to talk to. I've never had a Company that treats its employees this nice.
Overall Gastro One was a great place to work, however, management leaves something left to be desired! Management is full of liars. They work with who they want to work with and leaves everyone else in the dust fending for themselves. I must say that I enjoyed working with the physicians and all of my coworkers. I would recommend this as a good place to work but would highly suggest that you keep your personal information to yourself. Oh and I failed to mention that the pay is ridiculously low for an RN.
Staff is friendly. Poor Pay and overworked!!! Doctor's are amazingly kind to work with.
Nurse (Former Employee) – Germantown, TN – August 2, 2016
Underpaid and overworked...overbooked and short staffed...you're hired for a set schedule and then guilted into staying over a couple of hours everyday. If you don't stay over and need to leave you will be delegated the harder cases the next day or given the cold shoulder from certain staff members.
Two Bonus checks yearly. PTO after 90 days. Paid holidays off.
Overbooking of patients and short staffed, pay is extremely low, not enough time given to adequately check in and assist patients regarding their care, unorganized, techs, iv nurses and lpn's are extremely overworked
This is a great place to work if you enjoy working for a corporation. I have learned quite a bit about working in a Specialist group vs. working in Internal Medicine. I prefer working with a smaller office (more intimate) vs. a big company/organization (ex.: I have been working here for almost a year and a half and still do not know everyone).
Great benefits, diverse group of people, free lunches
Poor management, not much room for advancement, location to home
The staff is very nice, easy to work with, very welcoming to newcomers. The annual bonuses are always welcomed, and usually pretty generous. The supervisors can be very easy to work with on your personal schedule, put family commitments first and willing to work with you, for the most part. Management can be very wishy-washy, let one employee get away with anything, but come down hard on another for a small infraction. Hard to feel job security in that environment. Doctors supposed to have a set maximum amount of procedures they can schedule in a day, but regularly allowed to over book and go way over that limit, putting stain on nurses and staff.
Friendly staff, work well together
Inability of management to set rules and policy and then follow through, seem to play favorites with certain staff members
Patient Care Representative (Current Employee) – Germantown, TN – November 11, 2015
. The most enjoyable part of my job is communicating with patients that require help. My responsibilities are to answer the phone, direct and assist the need of each patient and to communicate thru task messages to the departments that may be of further assistance or additional information. I have developed my typing skills, along with computer knowledge and medical terminology. Management depended on surrounding co-workers to train you in the skills needed to preform the task. The hardest part of my job was to gather information from each co-worker to sufficiently work in my position. Each member had their own personal way of handling multiple situations differently, which may or may not have been, correct company protocol, therefore, you were confronted for some of the decisions made. Most all of the company policies were written in a handbook form but were not communicated or discussed well unless questions were raised clarification. Assumptions on management part were expected knowledge of each employee.
Medical Office Assistant (Current Employee) – Southaven, MS – August 22, 2015
I Have been at Gastro1 for 10 yrs now. I can perform duties for checking in of patients making sure that each patients information is acutely keyed into our system for billing purposes, and continuous care in our Facility. I am also proficient in checking out Clinic and Surgery center patients which in some cases call for the need of scheduling Diagnostic Studies / Surgery consults ect .
Great Staff and Benefits
Not a lot of room for growth when furthering your educational skills
I liked my job at first but then the longer I stayed there the more I saw that the management there was really bad. It was like they were scared to step up and do their job as a boss. There was lack of sticking to what you said the first time and since they weren't able to control their employees which led to the rules don't apply to everyone.
2 extra bonus checks a year.
Short lunches, lack of a full staff most of the time which made for a hard long day.
Registered Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Germantown, TN – April 5, 2015
My typical work day is start off by setting up the lab. If their patient that need lab that morning. I check the order and proceed with getting their lab work done. Once I finish I start working in the clinic that when I am working with different physicians.I train student and new employees about the policy and procedures that's needed on the jobs. The most enjoyable part my job is I love to teach individual about health.
Gastroenterology Specialists fast pace, multi tasking
Medical Office Assistant (Current Employee) – Southaven, MS – September 11, 2014
I scheduled appointments and procedures for patients, answered multi line phones system, I also keyed charges for 4 doctors. I sorted and distributed the mail. I've learned coding for gastroenterology Specialists and sharpened my skills of multi tasking. I loved working with my coworker we worked as team resolve any problems. The hardest part of my position was not being to satisfy every patient. The most enjoyable part of the job was the fast pace of the clinic flow.
