Opthalmic Assistant (Current Employee) – Wausau, WI – November 11, 2013
I learned how to be an ophthalmic assistant and to work with patients and doctors. Management was not the greatest. They didn't know much about the actual job or the duties we would perform or how. They didn't help much at all if you had any issues. The co-workers were great! Hardest part of the job was dealing with certain patients. The most enjoyable part of the job was going home knowing you helped many people.
Certified Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Wausau, WI – January 16, 2016
Very professional work environment and patient care is exceptional. Very skilled team work environment. Providing care, safe environment and showing sincere empathy for patients are the focused goals. Rooming patient and recording vitals. Drawing blood for lab work. Administering injections as needed. Triaging 25-35 calls per day. Knowing that I provide care and help patients everyday is so rewarding. Supporting my coworkers and knowing that I can either make decisions on my own, or rely on my coworkers to help me in work situations.
Providing exceptional patient care.
Challenges in making 100 percent of the patients happy.
Nurse Practitioner (Former Employee) – North Central WI – October 7, 2015
Hired on for same day walk in. Was to advance to own panel of patients. Did not occur. Minimal orientation-shadowed for one week. Additional 3 weeks with preceptor though not consistently. Most of time on own after first week. Notes continually criticized even though "approved" by physician preceptor.
Everyday is something new, you meet new faces, see repeat faces, you might even have a new physician walk past that you have never met before. Having a few laughs with co-workers sometimes makes the moment funny. Management is very friendly but sometimes does not understand the full part of all of our jobs, seems we need more staff to run our department successful and we are cut very short. No room for anyone to call is sick. The struggles of a day, is when a patient is upset about the new signs through out the clinic, and they yell at the first person they talk to. This is very difficult, but I greet them with a warm smile and turn the situation into a better one, and the patients then seem to understand and are happy and thankful.
Appointment Coordinator (Former Employee) – Chippewa Falls Wi – June 18, 2015
Very busy and challenging at times but to make an appointment for someone that is in pain with a toothache and that made that day makes my day. The other workers were willing to help answer a question or help schedule. Hardest part of the job is when you have to turn away a patient to full to take them.
Cardiovascular Technician (Former Employee) – Marshfield, WI – April 3, 2015
Great place to work when starting a career in medicine. Staff as well as physicians go out of their way to ensure that staff are properly trained to a very high standard. When it comes to training its all on the job training followed up by learning sessions with physicians and senior techs.
Great training opportunities.
low cenus means when there are no procedures you don't work

Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Marshfield, WI – November 9, 2014
I love having a close relationship with co-workers and patient's. I wish we had different hours. I'm a good teamwork co-worker. The hardest part of the job is losing patient's. I've learned that even though we lose a lot of patient's getting to help them through their journey is rewarding.
hostile working environment; anti-fun; poor management
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Rice Lake, WI – September 21, 2014
I worked at Marshfield Clinic for over three years and it continued to worsen- just when you think things couldn't possibly get worse, they did! Pay freezes, poor management that does not want any input from lowly workers, horrible patient to staff ratios. Most staff were severely overworked; catastrophe waiting to happen
Medical Assistant/ Deptarment Float (Former Employee) – Marshfield, WI – September 11, 2014
Really loved most of my co workers, but the management never knew what was going on between then, very inconsistent and terrible open door policy. Always felt if you didn't brown nose, you were in trouble for something.
