Letter Writer (Former Employee) – Rochester Hills, MI – March 14, 2018
The managers and coworkers there were very friendly and helpful. This position is no longer needed as the company now uses email and computer generated mailings to send out letters and change patient files. So if I could recommend this position I would.
Weight Loss Consultant (Former Employee) – Ann Arbor, MI – January 29, 2018
I didn't feel valued as an employee if I didn't make enough money in sales during a given week. Focus is mainly on numbers instead of interaction and accommodation with and to patients. The hours a long (10 hour days), if you have a social life, you can kiss it goodbye. You almost never get out on time, and you have to arrive early to set everything up for the day. The diets work, I can attest to that, but the company is just a bit too pushy when it comes to buying the products. Culture in the clinics just is not a positive one.
Clinic Manager - Former (Former Employee) – Michigan – November 15, 2017
First, their diet plans were put together by a former employee who gathered info off the internet. Secondly, they designed it so that people would gain there weight back and need to do the program again. They have supplements which are a part of the program, but are expensive and are separate from the cost of the program. They advertise a price, but don't want to actually sign people at that price and then want you to sell them more weeks, etc. And they don't allow clinic managers to drive business to their own clinics at the same time holding them responsible for low traffic ( patients coming through the door), etc. One clinic can't do something that the other clinics are doing. Corporate doesn't seem to understand that each clinic has different demographics, so one size doesn't fit all. And instead of providing real new leads, they focus on each employee making 25 calls a day to former patients, some of whom are on a DNC list. I actually called the same people every week. If after three years they haven't returned the call or come back in, then they probably won't.
I have worked for Medical Weight Loss Cinic from 2009-2013, and I have just returned recently this year. The support you receive from the management and staff is over and above any "job" I have ever had. We educate and motivate others to help them to change their lifestyle. Our patients lose weight as a result! Medical Weight Loss Clinic is a very honest and ethical Michigan Corporate Company. I have been a Cinic Manager and have worked as a Medical Assistant. The company does give opportunity for advancement and the compensation is fair. Working for MWLC has given me the chance to help others and earn a living doing something I love!

This isn't a 9-5 mon-fri office gig. It's a little more, and so worth being open a little longer. There are not many cons.
Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Muskegon, MI – July 29, 2014
daily I work with people who are ready to change their life and some who just like to visit. I have learned that everyone works at different levels/pace. Management team are hard workers. Co-workers are sometimes not reliable when needed the most. The hardest part of the job is telling patients day in and day out that they are not meeting the needs of the program or not trying in so many words. and I feel that I am not trained to be a psychiatrist I am only a medical assistant. Most enjoyable is to see a happy patient.

I really enjoyed myself at this particular job. I enjoyed learning new and exciting things. My coworkers were fun to work with. I meant many people and became friends with some.There was nothing hard about this job. The most enjoyable part was being able to help young and old to lose weight....
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Southfield, Michigan – December 13, 2012
Perform bloodwork and EKG's thru the morning, individual counciling with patients about their diet program and sell them nutritional products needed for their plans. It was a place with music and laughter, very upbeat. I didn't find anything too hard to do and found all aspects of the job enjoyable.
Certified Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Toledo, OH – November 26, 2012
I absolutely love my patients and helping them achieve their weight loss goals. I have learned to solve most patients problems as well as new patients consultations. The management and co-workers could use a professionalism adjustment in the workplace. The hardest part of my job is the hours without the pay and benefits.
helping patients achieve their weight loss goals
working for commission, long hours and no benefits.
