Stressful, unproffesional and unstable work environment
Clinical Staff (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 29, 2016
I honestly don't know where to begin. I guess I could begin with the cut throat HR manager, Sandy Wilkinson. She is unprofessional and mean. Most employees are scared to approach her with any help and she is never on the employees side when it comes to problems with the management staff. If I had to describe the management staff in one word, it would be BULLY. This practice makes it a habit of taking it's over worked employees and sticking it to them, everyday. They try to convince you that you are getting a "job perk" but the perk is always disguised as another way to take advantage of their employees.
The physicians are wonderful but they are disconnected with management and their staff. There are lots of nice and fun coworkers but they are all worn down by bad and outdated management practices.
Should you receive an employment opportunity from the practice, run for your life. You will be treated better and make more money working at Chick-Fil-A.
Excellent doctors/surgeons horrible back office staff
Patient Account Coordinator (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – February 10, 2016
I would not recommend this company as a place of employment. The doctor's are all excellent at what they do and they are wonderful people. The problem is the management in the back office. I have never met so many nasty acting people.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – November 13, 2015
Meet with physicians before clinic, making sure all necessary materials/documents were in order for the day. Complete dictation on daily basis. Meet with attorneys, case managers regarding lien patients and/or WC patient appointments. Assist in clinic on daily basis, rooming of patients, ordering diagnostic testing when needed, remove staples/stitches, direct admit patients when needed.
More knowledgeable regarding medical field, orthopaedics and patient care. Enjoyed patient care the most.
Long hours, unrealistic expectations, staff not appreciated, very stressful working environment office politics

Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – April 4, 2015
The physicians in this practice are phenomenal. However their management staff and Human resources staff should be educated in leadership and how to treat employees with respect. The surgical centers management at the Peachtree street location doesn’t communicate with the OR staff and will not take accountability for their errors. The staff whispers amongst each other about other employees. Nothing is kept confidential that is brought to management and they share what you have said to them with other staff. The " good old boy" system is in practice with this management staff. The lower level human resources staff are biased against the employees when you report an issue due to their years of friendship with management. The health benefits are expensive and the plans are sub par. The only reason why some people stay is because they have had issues in their personal life and cant afford to quit but they want to. The other people there are keeping up the trouble and making the work day harder for those who wish they could afford to leave.
pay rate, no call ( but they want you to work some of your off days with no incentive pay)
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – March 26, 2015
Check schedule for 3 physicians, make sure records are received for second opinion appts and IME's. I was fortunate to be trained by a wonderful co--worker. I learned a lot about patient care and how to triage patient phone calls. Management Co-workers were team players, we helped one another. The hardest part of my job was making physicians respond to questionnaires, after awhile I figured out a system that worked for all physicians. The most enjoyable part of my job was the interaction with the patients. Comforting them when they were afraid of upcoming surgery, making them feel our team will take very good care of them. When they would come back in after surgery and give you a hug and say, "thank you". The patient interaction was the most enjoyable part of my job
FRONT DESK COORDINATOR (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – February 13, 2015
I learned a steady workflow for checking in patients, verifying insurance, and checking out patients. I did inventory and placed supply orders for the office. I created great relationships with patients and colleagues.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – October 17, 2014
I was blessed with this job opportunity straight out of high school and stayed with this company for the next seven years of my life. I began at an entry level position and moved up the company ladder twice within my first 3 years. I originally started out in the scheduling dept. and later moved up to a front desk customer service position. Two years later I began my administrative career by assisting two of our surgeons while working out of two different satellite offices. With sadness, I resigned my position after seven years of employment because I was becoming a mother for the first time and could no longer commute. This company was large, efficient, productive, and helped mold my work ethic, skills, and abilities in such a way that helped me become the professional I pride myself on today. My experience there taught me so much about myself, and even set a standard view for me of how a company could and should operate for its customers and employees. I will never forget this job experience.
Orthopedic Medical Transcriptionist (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – June 20, 2014
Staff members are helpful, friendly, easy to get along with. Management will work with you to resolve problems or concerns. Enjoy interacting with coworkers. Sometimes difficult to get in touch with management
Run! They lure you with Good Pay but the morale is beyond LOW!
Billing representative (Former Employee) – Atlanta – April 8, 2012
I worked in the billing department and it was horrible. The manager was a first time manager after they demoted 2 previous billing managers who (last I checked) still work there. The billing manager and CFO are highly unqualified and A/R shows it.
free lunches, free sports tickets
if the billing department is sub par, they usually fire the last hired employee.
