Pros: even if one year we didn't get a raise, the next year would make up for it.
Cons: working short with a heavy schedule
It was a busy clinic where I worked. I enjoyed helping the patients and registering them. My coworkers and I worked very well with each other. We were a team. If someone slacked, then it was no issue of someone saying something to them. I enjoyed making my patients laugh or smile when they were upset about something. Sometimes it could be challenging – more... dealing with a person who was upset for what ever reason, but you learned to try to make it as easy as possible for them. I always loved working with the public and the patients always enjoyed coming to me. You had to focus on time because it could get very busy and you wanted to make sure that the patients were ready for the doctor to keep the schedule. – less

It's overall a decent place to work but management could be more approachable. I used to work in a level 1 trauma center where it was much more action. There aren't many traumas that come through but we get a fair share of medical emergencies. I enjoy most helping care for the patients as part of the medical treatment team.
Very well organized and productive place to work in with a locker room to relax in when you take your break

Maryland, MD (Former Employee), Baltimore Maryland – January 29, 2013
I started in Environmental Services and worked my way up the ladder in becoming a Unit Secretary in the Intensive Care Unit. One of the most interesting part of my job was interacting with all employees on different levels in order to attain specific goals in caring for the patients
Great patient population, decent compensation, interesting neighborhood, flexible hours. However, after 3 months the practice manager announced (at a weekly meeting with absolutely everybody present) that they were ending use of my professional group. Basically, I and two professional peers got to hear that we were being laid off in a meeting with no – more... warning. I wish I could report that this was the low point , but management got even worse after that until the three of us left. – less
