They do take advantage of their salaried employees. I was docked 4 hours of PTO for leaving 1 hour early when I came in 1 hour early before the shift. They expect salaried employees to work 45+ hours a week, and do not tolerate anything less than 40 at all. No flexibility, which can make work very stressful and overbearing.
Old-fashioned, strict, no flextime, even for those not in customer service. As a salaried emplyee felt like a I was a time punch employee. 1 minute past the hour was late for a salaried person who might stay well past 6pm and work more than 40 hours.

Working in any doctors office can be stressful at any time. Things can get busy, patients can get rude, but you can only help one person at a time.

When I worked there the stressful part was when the same people called in sick all the time. The hospital was not at fault.Being very busy was sometimes stressful under these conditions.

We are a part of a larger corporation so there is lag time when requesting/making changes.

The most stressful part of a day is when patients spend too much time waiting to check in, or receive the run around because multiple departments have not been coordinated.
