Medical Assistant, Madison, IN - May 13, 2017
I enjoyed working here because it was close to home. The pay was not competitive at all, benefits were so so. The hospital and physician practice have a good atmosphere, I had friends in every department. The problem is, even with an associates degree in medical assisting, the start lay was okay if you're PRN, once you take a benefited position expect your pay to drop drastically. Some doctors are easy to work for and are kind, whereas others are a nightmare. You are constantly being told to push high volumes of patients, to get them in out and on their way. Money money money....none of which you will reap the benefits of your hard work. There is no overtime, no breaks, you're lucky to get a 15 minute lunch with some providers because they continually run late with patients and in return you get no lunch and get home late. Only to be scolded by your supervisor for not taking the full one hour lunch, but you're supposed to stay and provide care, it's not like you can abandon your patients! It's backwards there, some co-workers are nasty, but most are great, the nasty ones never stay long. I truly enjoyed my patients whole working here, I left for higher paying position elsewhere.
