Nurse (Former Employee) – New York, NT – June 9, 2012
I worked for Take Care for a few years at a corporate wellness center in the Northeast. The pay was 10k less a year than their major competitor; which explains why they are continually looking for employees for the same position. If you do decide to take a position with them think of it as an entry level job with no room for advancement in pay or position. They will also lure you in with false promise re: position responsibilites then leave you alone to run a corporate health center with little guidance or support. Management was nonsupportive and unavailable at best with contentious relationships at the local office between local supervisors that would trickle down to the sites.
Nurse Practitioner FNP (Former Employee) – Philadelphia – February 9, 2013
Worked as Nurse Practitioner; seemed to work a million hours. Management incredibly not supportive. Unethical hiring and termination policies. Job descriptions unrealistic. Company owners were millionaires without healthcare background. The practitioners work incredibly hard without much support. Would never recommend clinics for family members nor would ever recommend for a future employee.
Flexible hours, Independant provider in the clinic
Advance Nurse Practitioner (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – June 6, 2012
Typical work week 40hrs, have to work weekends and holidays. Working independantly need to have strong clinical background and experience. A physician is available for reference and questions if the NP is unsure or wants guidence. Protocols for standard dx are developed and available to each provider. Managment is available by phone. In the clinic you may or may not have an assistant to help take vitals, obtain insurance information, etc. Hardest part of the job is getting use to practicing alone. Most enjoyable is the confidence and knowledge gained by working independantly and networking withf fellow NP's within the company.
RE: Employee Health Center employment in NJ a nightmare!
Employee Health Center (Former Employee) – NJ – June 17, 2012
If you are thinking of getting a job in NJ for Take Care Health, think again. Whether you are a physician, MA, RN, PT, etc., there is an incredibly high turnover due to management. Extremely unprofessional, incompetent and unethical leadership. This is my personal experience as well as the experiences of numerous colleagues and friends.
Registered Dental Assistant (Former Employee) – San Antonio, Texas – November 12, 2012
Chair side dental assistant for three dentist (two dentist always on duty) as well as two hygienists. Non stop dentistry throughout ten hour shifts. While working for this company, I was appointed the duty of "dental equipment repair coordinator". I further educated myself on dental equipment through the assistance of a local company. I put together owner manuals for all the dental equipment in the department. I was also appointed the duty of organizing the department for preparation of accreditation. I really enjoy my career choice as I have been a dental assistant for fifteen year's now and look forward to helping and educating people for a healthier life style through oral hygiene.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Chandler, AZ – December 3, 2012
If you like working long hours with no scheduled breaks or lunches. Not having working office equipment, with no one taking responsability for issues that arise then this is the job for you. I learned that if you walk into an office and the first thing you see and hear are complaints and negativity from the staff you should probably take that to heart and reconsider working there. Any position with this company seems to be to much for one person accross the board in the clinic. There is a very high turnover of staff. Co workers were all hard working people. The hardest part of the job was knowing what was waiting for you when you got there. The most enjoyable part was the paycheck.
no breaks, lunches scheduled during manatory meetings
Family Nurse Practitioner (Current Employee) – Chandler, AZ – February 18, 2013
I begin my day by reviewing labs, referrals , x-rays, consult notes, e-mails and requested prescriptions. Then I start seeing patients' from 8 am to 5 pm. I also attend provider meetings or staff meetings during lunch and admin time. If there are no scheduled meetings I am calling patients' with labs or other testing results, writing orders notes for my nurse or sending tasks to the referrals cooridinator, or chronic disease management nurse. I am also available to see any emergencies.
The particular EMR that we use "Primesuites" is time intensive due to lack of autopopulation and duplicate tasks involved in an already busy day.
The most enjoyable part of my job are the patients'. My patients' are an Internationaly diverse population.
Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Buffalo, WV – September 10, 2012
I work 26 hrs a week. Monday thru Thursday I work 4.5 hrs, and Fridays 8 hrs. The first part of the week I am there to support the full time Medical Assistant. I proposed a weekly rotation of duties to keep a fluent schedule with patients. We rotate front office and patient care week by week. The hardest part of my job at this location is doing 8 hrs of work in the 4.5 hrs I am on the clock. This includes running end of the day reports as well as assisting last minute walk in patients to be seen. The best part of the job is the flow of the office, as well as a great working relationship with the providers and the other medical assistant.
scheduled lunch, great relationships and trust with patients
unable to express our thoughts and ideas, inability for use of the clinic for employees
Dental Assistant (Former Employee) – British Petroleum – December 31, 2011
The company benefits are terrible, we can't use our facility for healthcare if we are sick, we have to leave our work site and go to a nearby take care ready clinic to be seen. The supervisors at the BP clinic,sorry "Wellness Center", are so stiff necked in the dental department, they terminated my employment because they said I violated a policy that they could not produce to me in writing. I was never warned nor has the incident ever been presented to us before.Being that it is s new facility, i know for a fact the problem grew out of hand because i knew all of the equipment and dental programs and my office manager did not. I was able to help all employees from the front desk to the clinical office and she had to get on the phone and call tech support to find out.
Toyota Plant Clinic (Former Employee) – San Antonio, Tx – September 22, 2014
Favoritism is key in this company. A manager was hired and brought her friend with her. So they find reasons to fire other managers to place their friends. A very immoral and unethical place to work. Happened at Toyota plant 4 times. PLEASE AVOID SAN ANTONIO TAKE CARE HEALTH LIKE THE PLAGUE!!!
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Florence, KY – November 21, 2014
I would arrive and open up the rooms. Get the computers started for people to sign in to be seen by the NP. The other employees were wonderful and very understanding about work schedules. The hardest part was the down time in between patients. The most enjoyable part was helping people.
Registrar /Certified Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Gainesville, GA – May 15, 2014
My typical day at work:Perform general and specific administrative duties •Schedule/Cancel appointments •Referrals, Post Charges, Collect Co-pays, Insurance Verification •Update Patient demographics •Operate medical equipment such as X-ray machines to assist the doctor Prescription Refills/Return patients calls regarding medications and instructions •Greet visitors and patients •Back Office Duties as needed: prepare exam rooms, vital signs and assist physician during exam as needed What I've learned working at my previous that the open door policy really doesn't work especially when it came to our manager.I'd loved coming to work because of the patients and the staff, the hardest part of my job was knowing how bad favortism can ruin a company.
Getting to know the patients on a one and one level
Phlebotomist/ CAA/ MA (Former Employee) – Chandler, AZ – December 27, 2013
Unless you are management at this company you will have a horrible experience. They are very corrupt all the way up to the highest level of management including their HR department. A word to the wise do not even think about complaining to HR in this company because it will do no good & it will put a target on your back.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Hillsboro, OR – February 5, 2014
I had a great time working at TCHS. I started through a temp service and they hired me on after my contract was up through the temp service. I typically worked Mon-Fri 8-5 but hours slowly got cut due to a decline in patient scheduling. TCHS is operated through Intel on both the Jones Farm campus as well as Ronler Acres campus. We say only Intel employees and their families. I particularly enjoyed walk in patients that were coming in for a nurse only visit; patients would come in for simply a Tylenol for a headache or trauma due to work injury. I learned a lot at this job about processing labs and got to be efficient again in venipuncture/lab draws since I was unable to do so at my previous job (they had their own lab). I was laid off a few months ago but I am grateful for the opportunity to work there for as long as I did.
Pretty mundane job. Does not use your NP and critical thinking skills to the fullest potential. You will be told how to practice to maintain Hedis scores. Really do you want a new NP managing your DM and Hypertension? What out for the manager and some of the assistance a who will do anything to climb to the top.
Intern (Current Employee) – Dublin, OH – April 19, 2015
Take Care Health Systems is a great company and has an excellent work atmosphere! The staff was friendly, along with the company we work for, OCLC, they are extremely friendly and enjoy having us there.
