I don’t sleep well the night before due to anxiety. We are severely overworked and underpaid. They constantly try to force APPs to see patient loads equal to and sometimes higher than physician loads despite the fact that the physicians make more than twice the APP salary.

I would tell them not to interview and to find employment elsewhere.

As an APP, none. You are contracted to work 15 shifts/month. It is a 7 on/7 off schedule, however, there is no allotment for sick leave, bereavement or maternity leave. Further, they do not pay you (nor count as a shift) the days you are REQUIRED to go to onboarding orientation or any other mandatory training days.

Answered July 9, 2020

As an APP: medical/dental/disability/life insurance. The available plans are inadequate and extremely expensive with large deductibles. No vacation/PTO/Bereavement/sick leave. You do not get paid to go to mandatory onboarding and whatever orientation time you get (typically up to 3 months), you are only paid half of your salary until out of orientation.

Answered July 9, 2020

As an APP: 12h/day, however, you can add at least 2-3 hours per day onto that as you will be there late regularly as well as spend large amount of time at home charting. You are NOT compensated for this and even though APPs are ‘hourly’, we are paid as if we were salary and so they refuse to let you use extra hours worked to make up for sick time, etc.

I’m not ashamed to say it but I won’t volunteer the information. I have had colleagues that were interested in applying and asked my opinion. Sadly, I’ve had to tell each of them that I would not recommend Sound Physicians.

Answered July 9, 2020

Technically no, however, if you’re in the ‘clique’, they will ensure your shifts remain on the calendar so you get paid.

Answered July 9, 2020

First I would establish clear roles for APPs. They always say they do not view as differently than physicians, however, they treat us significantly differently. We are expected to see 85-100% of the number of patients the physicians see except they are unwilling to pay adequately (APP makes about 40% of the physicians salary).
