We joined Medstar from just being a small private office. We were told nothing would change but great things. We were told the staff was all gonna stay, and that is why we had picked Medstar. They told two RNs that they had to retire. They re-did our whole Reception area and the patients nor staff liked it. They made the office uninviting when patients loved our office and staff. Patients are not happy, I know change is never easy but why fix something that isnt broken and was not an issue. We went from being able to take time off with notice to weather it was time w/out pay to paid time off. If we get sick we get written up, but they dont want us coming in if we are sick. If you leave work early you get an occurrence. If you do not meet 40 hours each week they will take from vacation, even if you have over-time one week and not the second. They do not pay overtime, but will take from your vacation rather than take from the OT. You may not get a full 30 minute lunch break, but if you dont clock out for 30 they will take 30 out anyways. If you call out they dont have anyone to cover you, so you are working your patients in and working another doctors patients in. The EMR is probably the only good thing about Medstar. It has made looking for a chart and accessing patients records very easy.
Friendly staff, get out early on Fridays
