Medical Technologist (Former Employee) – Sterling, VA – May 19, 2017
Salary and work are not matching. Employee has to work vary positions which are not related to their career. For example, a Med Technologist has to perform job duties as a Medical Assistant including taking vitals, medical notes, heart rates, etc., and even has to be a part-time engineer maintenance to check around building after hours to see if any lights out or any damage of building to make sure building in good shape. Patients come to Patient First with fully care and respect, but employees are treated poorly. Salary is too low comparing to the work load of employee. It is a waste of time and money in training process provide to employees for somethings which is not related to work position.

Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Manassas, VA – April 18, 2018
while with the company we have seen between 70 to 80 patients per shift at times. But during my tenure I have learned how to do code drill, learned the EMR system, finger sticks, place IV'S, as well as properly sterilize for surgical procedures. I also learned how to scan and file documents into a patients medical records obtained a certification in BLS, CPR and performed DOT drug screens as well as non DOT drug screens. We handled in house x-rays, lab work, and anything else to ensure the patient was well taken care of at all times.
interacting with all of the nurses and physicians, giving impeccable patient care
sometimes not having enough associates during peak seasons
Patient Service Representative (Former Employee) – Mechanicsburg, PA – April 11, 2018
Part time was good but a full time job would be tough in that environment. A lot of management issues and many who do not get along with one another which causes to much workplace drama. Team atmosphere works better for me.
This company is conveniently located all around Maryland. However, work hours are not stable. You may be scheduled to work 7 hours in the morning, and more than 10 hours in the evening. Staff are not allowed to have a designated shift. You have to work both morning and evenings. Evenings are harder because it is the busiest, no telling when you will get off. Lunch breaks are not designated, you have to take a bite to eat when you can.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Wyomissing, PA – March 13, 2018
A typical day would be fast-paced and productive. There I've learned more about assisting Dr.'s throughout their procedures, autoclaving instruments, registering and billing patients accounts, as well as triaging and caring for all patient needs. In my opinion, management could be more professional and organized but it overall decent. The hardest part of the job for me is my empathetic and emotional attachment to my patients and their different health needs/incidents. The most enjoyable part of the job is always the smile and assurance we bring patients with helping their many concerns and injuries.
Great hospitality from patients.
Short breaks, and unprofessional work attitudes and ethics.
Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Hamilton, NJ – March 9, 2018
Patient First is a fast paced, busy work place, with always something to do. Most days its hit the ground running as soon as the doors open at 8am without a break sometimes till you leave either at 3pm unless you're doing a double and working till 10pm. They see patients of all ages from babies to the elderly for all reasons from the common cold to broken bones and needing stitches.
Do not feel comfortable stating (Current Employee) – Glen Allen, VA – February 22, 2018
Patient First started as a family oriented company. Unfortunately, it has grown too large too fast to continue this type of environment although it strives to do so. I do not feel comfortable stating anymore that may give my current positio away at this time.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Virginia Beach, VA – February 19, 2018
I love the medical field and taking care of people everyday was different and I enjoyed every day working there. I learned a lot at this job, I'm very good at phlebotomy. I can get any vein that most tech's can not.
Medical Records (Current Employee) – Glen Allen, VA – January 19, 2018
This is a great company to work for be cause they really value and take care of their employees. The opportunity for advancement is great as well because there is no time limit on how long you have to be with the company before you can move up. If I had to choose a downside I would have to say that its the fact that it takes them forever to hire and fire people. I was told that they reason it takes them so long is because "they invest in their people". I think its great, but when you have people continuously doing dumb things, dragging down a whole team you just need to let them go. Other than that its an amazing company with excellent job security
Patient Services Representative (Former Employee) – Virginia Beach, VA 23454 – January 10, 2018
This was not a bad company to work for. This was a short term employment for me while I decided what I wanted to and go to college. For the most part, the supervisors were pretty good and the pay and benefits were fair.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Hampton, VA 23666 – January 10, 2018
I enjoyed working for the company and with the staff at the Hampton Clinic. I feel the company provided me adequate training. I received ongoing training as well. My managers were very personable and helpful.
Patient Service Representative (Current Employee) – Glen Burnie, MD – December 6, 2017
Productive and nice place to work with flexible hours to work. Excellent job for students as they are willing to work with your schedule and they might even pay for your education if you decide to take a course in the medical field.
Nurse Supervisor (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – November 29, 2017
Poor training program, training happened in multiple locations including the administrative offices, changes in location could happen with a phone call or text! DOS based medical/legal documentation, very old!
Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Lutherville-Timonium, MD – November 24, 2017
Too many clicks, unfair to miniorties and nurses and doctors are treated like Kings and Queens. Lots of office snicks or back stabbing. Management is a joke. Favorite are most likely talking about you and telling management every little thing that you do.
