Pros: good hospital benefits
Cons: poorly run office, no one in charge, constant chaos, no communication, lying and backstabbing staff
I was hired as a Per Diem Medical Assistant. On my first day there was no orientation of office work flow. Came to work every day for two months with no idea what duties I would have. Would spend 10 minutes with the other staff deciding who would do what for the day. The "Office Coordinator" has no managerial experience, and does not take charge of the office allowing the other staff to make decisions she should be making. The other staff has no resepect for her. There is alot of backstabbing and lying among staff. There are unqualified people in the office answering phones and giving medical advice to patients. The attending physicians are too worried about their contracts than about how the office runs. One physician left because she was fed up with the whole situation. The resident physician program is run like a dog and pony show. There is no communication between the people who run the resident programs and the "Office Coordinator". The person who is in charge of physician support for Affinity has no idea how a physicians practice is runned and is not supportive to the "Office Coordinator" or staff. If you want to work in an office where no one is in charge, the staff will backstab and lie, an office in constant chaos, the attending physicians can't be bothered to take control of how the office is being runned then this is the place for you.
