Although, I feel that while working at SIMED I learned a lot of valuable lessons, but I would not recommend it to be a place to continue life long employment. SIMED is sort of a place where personal business is addressed more than professional, which is not something that I agree with. When it comes to the benefits I would rank a 10 because they are awesome, but when it comes to pay I would rank lowest.
Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Gainesville Fl. – October 18, 2014
I'm only PRN part time with the company at the moment. A typical day at work is exciting to me I love makeing the customers smile and talking with them. I've learned to keep a smile and make the patient smile also. I enjoy the coworkers I work with so far. Management is fair.The hardest part to me is not performing correctly while in the room with the physician. The most enjoyable part is pleaseing the patient.
Human Resources & Support Service Specialist (Current Employee) – Gainesville, FL – May 26, 2014
I have been working for SIMED since January 1997 and have been every opportunity to advance and grow. I have learned that I am a small person in a large organization however I like to think that I make a huge impact. For the most part management is great but of course you always have the power trip folks. I believe that what has kept me with this company so long is the people, patients, and co-workers we have become a family and do whatever we can do to make each others days better. The most enjoyable part of my job that I get to do what I love to do; I am a natural born leader and love to educate and teach people how operations work efficiently as well as providing outstanding customer service to sick patients.

Medical Assistant (Clinical/Externship) (Former Employee) – Ocala, FL – September 6, 2013
I enjoyed doing my internship with the doctors and medical assistants. I worked and trained in four different buildings and learned how each one was operated different. In each of the buildings the medical assistant would show me how they do things and I would assist them. I was rooming patients after the first week on my own and setting up injections on my own after the first month of internship. I learned quite a bit from all the people there, they were very nice and helpful in my training.
