Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Rancho Mirage, CA – August 28, 2018
This is the job of ur nightmare. The reviews on here are not of disgruntled employees, these are real people who were treated poorly. Management is like the so called “cool kids” in school, they stick to their click and nobody is allowed in. If anybody questions anybody in the cool kids club, you are automatically on the chopping block. It’s really sad and unprofessional. RUN RUN!!! Horrible place to work.

As a current employee at Desert Clinic Pain Institute/Summit pain institute, I’ve found in years working for organization that if an employee puts forth hard work hard, dedication, commitment to patient care, respect, good attendance and refrain from complaining, gossip and drama; you will find your learning professional skill sets and further knowledge of pain management modalities. Organization compensates for those who are commited and strive to further excel in their career. Management, chief medical officer and physicians will guide/train those who are seeking opportunity to grow knowledge of field. If your prone to change and evolving to new systems you will find job interesting. Daily work is fast paced and requires patient engagement, and enjoyable for those who thrive off of personal interactions, which makes the work day go by fast. Organization has upcoming opportunities for lead positions and company looks within first for those who are fit. If you’re not open or flexible to change probably not the best place for those.

Clinical Supervisor (Current Employee) – San Jacinto, CA – October 19, 2018
I have been with this company for almost 4 years now and since day one I was welcomed to the team. This has been one of the best companies I have worked for. I have had so much opportunity for growth here. Management is supportive, the Doctors and staff are awesome to work with. I love the companies passion and goal to help patients. Desert Clinic/Summit Pain Institute could be a life changing opportunity for people who are looking to invest in a company and to grow within. Very excited to be apart of such an amazing company.

Administrative Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Indio, CA – October 17, 2018
My experience so far at DCPI has been excellent. Since the first day I on boarded the staff has been phenomenal. My trainers were great, any question I had, or still have, they answered. I felt welcomed since day one. Yes some days are more hectic than others but that's life. The team that I currently work with is just great, there is a lot of collaboration. Management has been there when I have needed them. I am happy to be able to work in a company that is growing so fast. I look forward working here for many years.
Great Workplace Feel with Amazing Opportunity to Change Lives
Implementation Manager (Current Employee) – Palm Springs, CA – October 17, 2018
One of the things that I love about working for Desert Clinic Pain Institute is that there is such a clear difference that you are making in patient's lives. I have seen patients enter the program (the COE specifically), find a community to walk with them, learn with them and spur them on. I have seen patients get off of decade long dependencies on opioids and have even seen patients get up out of a wheel chair and walk for the very first time in years. Now, this is all outward positive realities. Behind the scenes, there is a close camaraderie of workplace relationships as well. There is mutual dependency and reliability that fosters a teamwork environment that is complementary. There is support from the top down, from management to staff. Also, there is plenty of room for career advancement. I have seem people come into the clinics as medical assistants working on further education and rise up to corporate administration upon completion of the requirements. That is really encouraging to me.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Indio, CA – August 18, 2018
I had the opportunity to work here. When they interview you and hire you they make it seem like its a perfectly run place. However I should have known they lied of the location i was going to work in.Big WARNING! This place is a perfect place for students to work. The management is very poor and they play favorites. The majority of office supervisors have no education or knowledge of how to supervise a medical facility.They have a big staff turn over for a reason. Patients are just numbers and yes they have Goals on how many IEHP members they can send to COE program. For those who stick around its not because they are great at their jobs. Employees stay there for comfort. This company has no place for growth.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Rancho Mirage, CA – August 9, 2018
By far the worst company to work for the supervisor is so rude and unprofessional and unexperienced She is all about being friendly but yet she’s the same one who has her favorites upper management does not care if you tell them anything all they care about is the money . The schedule is out of control overbooking doctors and a lot of rescheduling.
Scribe (Former Employee) – Rancho Mirage, CA – August 8, 2018
Stressful and disorganized are major understatements. Management play favorites and are unprofessional. The amount of work they pile on non management staff while they get their coffee and hide in a room is really bad. The low pay rate is not only a slap in the face but just plain embarrassing. Always overbooking, the patient is treated like a $ sign. Nothing runs on time, they change things on the fly and look for ways to get anyone in trouble rather than building a good team. The turn over rate is so bad here even the patients get frustrated. RUN
understaffed, terrible pay, work load, management, gossip, negative, stressful environment
Medical Assistant - Scribe (Current Employee) – Rancho Mirage, CA – August 6, 2018
Lack of communication is very evident with supervisors. High volume of patients, eight an hour for one provider, with multiple providers being there at once makes for a hectic and very stressful work environment.
Nightmare environment poor communication zero training
Prefer not to state (Former Employee) – Multiple – May 16, 2018
Words can’t even begin to cover it. This place is beyond words and not in a good way. Poor communication is an understatement. The hiring process is a joke as well as the entire off site team. Expect gossip, disrespect ,and nepotism towards unprofessional staff who are affiliated with owners or management. Also, ever hear of the term overworked and underpaid? Yeah, it’s bad.
Medical (Former Employee) – Indio, CA – October 27, 2017
Run - don’t walk away. Management is horrible and base decisions on personal feelings - not good business sense. They DO NOT appreciate their employees and treat them as disposable. Very high turn over rate. Expect staff to work outside scope of practice. Overbook Medical. No breaks - always there overtime. And those aren’t the serious issues. Most staff are very young and extremely inexperienced.
Office Staff (Former Employee) – Rancho Mirage, CA – October 26, 2017
The office management is terrible. Very unprofessional. Do not recommend working here! Too much gossip and non team work. You have to work for a whole year before you get vacation. They want too much for small pay.
Nursing Dept/Medical dept (Former Employee) – California – September 23, 2017
The honeymoon phase of this job came and went rather quickly. The upper management are poor team players. There is a severe chronic lack of communication and rampant disrespect on all levels. No job description is available, so they make things up on the fly. The overall vision for the practice is great, but the upper management are very shady and focus more on trying to catch people on something rather than teaching them or getting to know their staff. There was essentially no orientation and they still have no formal orientation plan or schedule. So inevitably things will be not done, or completed. But they deny responsibility of their lack of direction.
Lower level staff are amazing and the glue that holds this place up
No breaks, missed lunches, short staffed, no orientation
Supervisor (Current Employee) – Rancho Mirage, CA – August 2, 2017
Desert Clinic Pain Institute is a very rewarding company to work for. I have been employed here for almost a year and am so thankful I was given an opportunity to work here. The leadership team is very knowledgeable dependable and supportive.
This office reflects bad leadership skills. Terrible office management. Major turnover. Very immature office management.
Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Rancho Mirage, Indio, and Palm Springs – November 13, 2016
I would never recommend this work environment to anyone, it is chaotic and immature. The office management is very immature and lacks good leadership skills. An employees attitude reflects office management leadership in this office. The work environment never functions correctly. More then one employee will say they were never trained just thrown into their job. The office manager picks office favorites and tends to often pit colleagues against one another. Often good management gives good direction, this is not the case here. Compensation is terrible.
Terrible management, bad leadership, bad attitudes.
