Externship (Former Employee) – Fort Wayne, IN – January 24, 2017
Well, my first weeks were very much alright, I lived too far away to work at the location. A typical day would consist of setting things up for doctors and rooming patients. I worked in cardiology so I mostly did EKG's and asking patients for specific details in their lifestyle. The management was a bit crazy but for the most part was good. The girl training me on the other wasn't as pleasant to work with but the hardest part was trying to keep up with the doctors and the day. The most enjoyable thing about working there would be the people.
Typical office work where most people in it are not happy.

Management was the worst I have ever seen. She sits in her office in a different building than ours. It is within walking distance but she never came over to access me or even to ask how I was doing in my training. I was doing terrible in training because my trainer was an overbearing liar. I strongly feel that I was let go because the manager has no idea what the truth is nor does she even care. Terrible place to work.

You can always tell the happy employee reviews from the unhappy ones. I love working here everyday is a new group of patients and a chance to touch someone in some way. I have never worked somewhere that has actually taken the time to train a person and make sure the are comfortable in their position before they let you try on your own, and have someone there to help you out when you are in doubt. And the Dr's are great they learn your name and actually remember it. not just yell hey you. I love the diversity of patients that come and go. Health care is always a changing some days you get to take a lunch and some days you east at your desk.you don't take a job for the free drug rep lunches.
Nurse (Current Employee) – Indiana – April 9, 2016
Very demanding company with little compensation . Management does not address concerns or conflict. Physicians are unproffesional to nursing staff. Allowed to swear at nurses as well as demean them. Be careful.
Fast paced and fun workplace working with patients from all walks of life

Medical Assistant Externship Program (Former Employee) – Fort Wayne, IN – August 26, 2014
I did my extern at Lutheran Medical Group, spending 11 weeks there I learned the ins and outs of prepping rooms, gathering personal and medical information from patients and assisting the physician in various treatments. Typical day would start with prepping folders (files) for that days scheduled patients, cleaning exam rooms if needed and getting them ready for the day. Making sure physicians are assigned the areas where their nurses will be to decrease confusion. Gather equipment for each room, boot up computers and get the system ready for the day. When patients arrive, I would call them back, weigh them, perform a check of vitals, record them in the system, along with updating medicines, allergies, and chief complaints. I would also check their pulse oxygen levels, and if they were low I would get the O2 tank and hose to them to bring up their numbers. When the physician was finished with them I would go in and check them out, the nurse would explain any pertinent information to them and I would walk them out. My main goal was to show professionalism, good quality care and do my best to send the patient out with a great opinion of their visit. At the end of the day, I would then go through the rooms clean them if needed, discard any paper work that the nurses had for me, check the shredder basket, answer phones and voice mails if needed, and send and receive faxes for all nurses.
Team work, great Doctors, Awesome Nurses
Meals eaten at the desks, Patients complained of smells from food, hard to contact nurse

I worked at Lutheran Medical Group as an extern, the women in that department that I worked in were very helpful, always offering to assist and teach me new skills. They offered up all of the hands on education that I would need to become a knowledgeable medical assistant
Great Doctors, Great Nurses and Medical Assistants, everyone very pleasant, and the breakroom has a moral team that keeps everything upbeat!
Not enough seating for everyone. Nurses are wore thin with no time to answer the phone calls.
Certified Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Angola, IN – August 16, 2013
A typical day at work can be very exciting. Since I work for a surgeon there are days that don't seem like they will be very busy, but next thing you know there could be a call that could turn the whole day upside down. We adapt very quickly when these events occur and pull together as a team to get the job done. I am very fortunate to work with such a fabulous team of professionals.
My co-workers are truly awesome.
I wish we interacted more with our corporate office.
Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Fort Wayne, Indiana – July 30, 2013
Take patients into rooms, take accurate vital signs, assist Doctor in certain procedures, file charts, abstract charts, scan information from the chart into the computer. Answer phone,give injections as asked by the doctor. Co- workers are very respectful and nice, Doctors are laid back and easy to talk to. the hardest part of my job is learning how and what the Doctor likes. The most enjoyable part of my job is the understanding of my co workers, and helping sick ones get better.
Free lunches, nice hours and Starbucks for a late snack.
