Surgery Scheduler (Former Employee), Mount Kisco, NY – July 20, 2014
I scheduled surgeries, met with patients, assisted doctors, organized insurance. It was a great learning experience. I worked in many different departments but mostly OB/GYN and Orthopedics. My coworkers were amazing! They were very welcoming and caring. They made work more enjoyable.
LPN (Current Employee), Mount Kisco, NY – March 11, 2014
Environment is very fast paced but friendly. Focus is on patient care. Day is spent communicating with the patient and addressing their needs. You learn to assess over the phone and triage based of the slightest amount of information and determine urgency based off of clinical symptoms and your knowledge of prioritizing. Management isn't at all interested – more... in the needs of the staff and the hardest part was being an advocate for the patient with no voice. You are inundated with work and are expected to complete it. There is not much flexibility with your schedule and the hours are long. Complaints from staff go unnoticed. The best part is the office environment and working one on one with the MD. – less
Part-Time recovery room & endoscopy nurse (Former Employee), Mount Kisco, NY – November 11, 2013
I learned a lot there but some doctors favor certain staff members and treat other staff poorly. Most of my co-workers were fun and helpful. However, the hours are long with a very short lunch break and management is disorganized and not understanding if you have a family.
Ophthalmic/Medical Asst (Former Employee), Mount Kisco, NY – July 4, 2013
Pros: health care, breaks, team work
Cons: computer system, long days
With this company I advanced from a scheduler to a medical assistant. My coworkers were helpful and pleasant to be around. Management was fair and very skilled. My typical day was helping the doctor assist the patients and give them the quality care they deserved. All computer data was inputted by me into the computer. I loved the interaction with the – more... patients. The hardest part was keeping the doctor on time. – less
Location of the position is changing to much further away.
Medical Scheduler for Centralized Scheduling (Current Employee), Brewster, NY – May 14, 2013
Pros: knowing which doctors treat certain kinds of aliments.
Cons: running short staffed.
MKMG is an extremely busy practice, and more often than not, we run short staffed. I have learned to increase my multi tasking skills and listen carefully and compassionately to patients needs. The most difficult part of the job is not being able to resolve issues with clinical staff/patients needs. The most enjoyable part of my job is helping people, – more... listening compassionately, and offering support to people who are suffering and frustrated. – less
Practice Support (Current Employee), Poughkeepsie, NY – November 17, 2012
Pros: health benefit contribution, vacations, job stability
Cons: very stressful, management, long hours
A typical day at work is very challenging from checking over 40 people a day which requires a detailed gathering of demographics and insurance information applying to patient and making appointments for those patients. There is a lot to remember in this position regarding insurance and procedures. If a mistake is made it can really effect the patients – more... financial and health. Unfortunately I have only been there for 2 months and I have not found this organization meeting my needs for employment. Hardest part of this position is the lack of team work from staff members to help the patients, the most enjoyable part is seeing all of the newborns. – less
