Busy, management was uninvolved

Good place to work for growth but you are just a number to the company. Management put on a good front but had no idea what was really going on in the clinic. Very short staffed and unfair scheduling

I worked in the Urgent Care department. We worked 4/10s. We had great team work, the doctors and PA’s are real nice to work with.

Urgent Care would see anywhere from 120-200 patients a day ( highest volume during the winter flu season). Back office medical assistants do anything from blood draws, assisiting with minor surgeries, injections, bandages, boots, crutches, assisting physicians with patients in exam rooms, running to get MRI’s and X-rays and being prepared for emergencies. We would also answer phones, complete task in the inbox for incoming messages from patients, doctors or pharmacies. Not much sitting time. There are no separate desk for each MA or nurse. It’s standing and walking for a good 8-10 hours. Very rewarding job personally and if you like fast paced this is a good place to work. The hardest part is coordinating time for PTO. A lot of times there are not enough people to cover time off, and other times when there is a full staff then PTO is no problem. Not much different from other companies.
