Medical Biller (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – July 27, 2018
A typical day is come in, clock in and sit down and start working. There is no talking allowed in the Billing Department, it is so quiet all you hear is the keyboards. Management needs better training. H.R needs training on how to talk to employees. During breaks all you hear is complaining about work and management. One thing is that in the Billing Department there is favoritism.

Great way to be clinically involved ,educated , travel , and connected to progressive group serving an expanding client base in a field needing to be better served by a medical team. I see the trade off in time and reward for efforts every day with more than 18 months of time invested.
CME hrs, travel/lodging, advancements, supplies, proprietary EHR, and uniforms.
Physician (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – October 18, 2017
I am currently a full time physician working for Skilled Wound Care. I originally started part time looking for a new career with more flexibility and regular work hours while still getting hands on patient care and procedures. After I started with SWC, I appreciated working independently with full autonomy seeing patients and doing procedures while still feeling like a part of a team with an emphasis on quality of care and internal continuing education so that I can feel confident that I am providing the best care for my patients. A typical work day includes rounding from ~7am to 2pm on an average of 20 patients at 2-3 skilled nursing facilities plus ~2-3 hrs of charting in the afternoon or evening depending on my schedule. The EMR is user friendly on the iPad and directs the user by prompting for a majority of the information required to write a good note. I always have support from colleagues and management when I encounter challenges or difficult cases. I was also pleasantly surprised to have found working with the skilled nursing patient population very rewarding especially with the long term patients that you see week after week and feel very fortunate to have developed great working relationships with the various nursing staff. I strongly recommend SWC and look forward to growing with the company.
work life balance, team approach, continuing education, Emr
driving time which is dependent on personal preferences
I can't stop recommending Skilled Wound Care to my colleagues.
Physician provider (Current Employee) – San Diego County, CA – October 6, 2017
I'm a physician provider and have worked at this company for one year. I have worked in various medical fields and I have never felt like part of a family, until joining SWC. I have full control of my schedule and I am finally able to enjoy a balanced work/lifestyle. The compensation is fair and I make as much as I want, based on my goals. They never pressure you into working more than you desire. The company is very ethically and their sole goal is to improve patient's lives by eradicating pressure injuries.This is a long term career and I am very happy I have found a place at SWC.
flexible, excellent company support, ethical, relaxed work environment
variable driving hours based on provider preferences
Full Time Physician Assistant (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – May 23, 2017
I am a full time physician assistant, and I have been with SWC for a little under 3 years. I have really loved the job and the day to day rounds. I do drive to nursing facilities and see patients who are mostly elderly with wounds. I have a lot of autonomy seeing the wounds and performing bedside procedure like debridement. As a PA I enjoy being out on the field, making my own decisions, and getting to work alongside nurses. My day starts early to drive and beat traffic. I round at a number of facilities with nurses. Then I come home early in the day at around 3 or 4 ish. I do document at night for about 2 hours on the EMR System.
Work/Life Balance, Friendly Company, A lot of Support

If you like running around town to 5-6 different skilled SNF's a day, making less than 30 dollars an hour with no benefits not even mileage allowence take this job. They do little to no field training and then expect you to do procedures which you are absolutely not trained well enough to do. Don't put your license at risk and get paid bad for it. I worked here for 2 months and that was enough.

Great support for questions and new issues encountered in the field. Co-workers are primarily retired surgeons, who are all very helpful!!. I have learned a myriad about wounds and the treatment thereof!
