Family Nurse Practitioner (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – October 30, 2013
A typical day working at a convience clinic involves seeing, diagnosising and prescribing for anything from UTIs, pink eye, rashes, sore throats to strep throat. Some days you may be the only person working in the clinic so the NP is responsible for checking in patients, running lab test and collecting the money
prescribing autonomy of being a provider
working 12 hours, some times the provider is responsible for checking in patients, running lab test and collecting the money

Family Nurse Practitioner (Current Employee) – Georgia – May 18, 2016
Love being an NP and working in the walk-in clinic set-up. We see 16-18 patients a day. It is mostly a non-stressful situation. Taking care of patients and encouraging healthy behaviors is very satisfying.
Management is a mess, but seems to be working on it, Company is too top-heavy, Forced to work less than part time hours while managers, making 6 figures and do not generate income work 40hrs/week.
The typical day at work was busy. We were all Team players and it was a great place to work. The most enjoyable part of my job was the Team of people I supervised, my boss and what the company stood for.

Clinic Coordinator / Nurse Practitioner (Former Employee) – Norcross, GA – July 6, 2015
Solo practitioner. Paperless company. I had friends working at the company. Rewarding experiences as frequently new employees appreciated the support and availability. Patients appreciated the convenience.Company strived to excel at customer satisfaction, exceed state benchmark for select HEDIS scores, AAAHA accreditation etc. The hardest part was to deal with frequently halting EMR and slow browser.
Autonomy, state of the art facility, belongingness to a large stable company
Only work here to get your foot in door for something better!
HCT/MEDICAL ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – ATLANTA – July 2, 2015
You will realize alot of stuff as soon as you are training! There is no work life balance, days are long and inconsistant depending on clinic. Winters are Crazy busy and summers are slow. Too much restructuring withing company which has resulted in many jobs lost. Company scope changes regularly and is not across the board. Rules and regulations not across the board as well. MAs are available to a handful of clinics for added help but they can only do so much in way of scope of practice and what they went to school for if your even lucky to get one. You will be in charge of billing and coding which NPs that have worked other places are not used to having to do and the lack of knowledge has added to company debt. You are expected to work long hours with hardly any break during the day and then do it all over again however your schedule is set up. Usually there are two clinics assigned to one clinical manager but almost every person that has accepted that role ends up quitting within the first yr or stepping down. This used to be a great place to work for but with upper management always micro managing, cutting back hours, a lack of a viable consistant working EMR system, small clinic rooms, lack of employees, depleting bonus' and non existant appreciation for employees the Work ethic has diminished.

FAMILY NURSE PRACTITIONER (Former Employee) – Mandeville, LA – April 27, 2015
At my current work, I love the clinic and the interactions I have with my patients. I work within a retail clinic, where I do everything for my patients, including running the insurance and collecting co-pays. It would be better if I had some one in the clinic with me to at least do the insurance and collect co-pays, however I love my job and would continue with the company if they were not shutting down the clinics in my area. In the clinic I have been able to interact with patients from 18 months and up. For me the best part of my job is the interaction with my patients and following up with them two days after the visit to check on them. The management for my market, was the best I have seen. My manager was appropriately trained and was always very professional.
great fun place, amazing co-workers, good management
