No chance of growth or job security
Secretary (Former Employee), WIlliamsburg,vaMarch 5, 2015
Pros: benefits are decent
Cons: scheduled to work a 12 hr shift but its really atleast 13 and a half
I worked there for 4 years. There are no raises based on merit and there is ZERO room for growth. There are also many lay offs because when Dr.'s leave the practice (which is all the time) their staff no longer has jobs. Then when Sentara tries to relocate you its to a job that is 50 miles away

To be a qualified Medical Assistant Extern to Sentara Medical Group is a good experience for me. The Management is look after the benefits of its employees and their patients. During my extern, I learned more and gain hands on techniques that I never learned from my school.

I am really thankful that I did my extern at SMG, Newport News.

Top notch working place
Medical Assistant (Former Employee), Virginia Beach, VAFebruary 26, 2014
Pros: staff
A typical MD office about 20-25 patients daily, I added on to my skills medication reconciliation and re-ordering medication the office was small total of 3 including the doctor so we were just like family. My hardest part of working here was leaving to come back to the Maryland area. We enjoyed working as a team

Pleasent atmosphere and plenty of room to advanced and improve oneself
Medical Assistant (Current Employee), Norfolk, VASeptember 23, 2013
Pros: work perks, flexible schedule.
Cons: short lunches
I was a resoruce pool employee with the medical group and I loved it. The position was very challenging and required me to use the skills I had learned in school. I enjoyed working here very much. Because I was a resource pool employee, I did not have a home office. I floated around from site to site as needed. This job really taught me the benefits of time management. Some sites were further away and I had to get up earlier than I wnated to to be on time. The managemnet staff was very flexible and my home and work life was properly balanced. Im also a full time student, so a flixble schedule was a must for me. I would love working for this company again.

Excellent company to work for.
Supervisor- Margie Smith (Former Employee), Virginia Beach, VAApril 3, 2013
Pros: education, networking, patient care
Cons: long hours
Complete support for one physician. I handled the triage, lab results, pharmacy calls and rooming patients. I assisted with office procedure's and did a lot of patient teaching on High blood pressure and high cholesterol and diabetes. The hardest part of this job was keeping up with patient demand as on some days we saw over 35 patients and as many calls. The best part of the job was all the teaching my physician did. I learned so much from him.

Good Compensation & Work/Life Balance
Temp (Former Employee), Norfolk, VAOctober 5, 2012
The company offered good/competitive compensation. They were flexible pertaining to hours, which was really nice that they were understanding when it came to appointments, etc. Communication from management could have been better. I felt excluded from the department being that I was a temp and didn't feel as though my co-workers were there to help me out if I needed it.
