Radiography Student in Tucson, AZ
I loved doing my (unpaid) clinical hours here as a Radiation Technology student for a local community college program. The staff, my clinical instructors, and the Radiography manager were wonderful to work alongside. I always felt respected and learned something new every day. As a student, if you come to work with a good attitude and are prepared to go out of your way to stock rooms (without being asked) and to clean/sanitize the patient areas as well as the computer station, you’ll be treated with respect. I was definitely rewarded justly for my hard work. The staff also notices how you treat patients, so I was always friendly and helpful. Know when to step back when you’re not needed and do not interrupt the radiographer or physician when they are speaking with a patient. I always said hi to the staff working the reception and either greeted or smiled at nurses, medical assistants, scribes, and housekeeping while I was accruing clinic hours there. There was only one physician who I would consider surly (everyone knows who it is; never smiled or greeted you, just barked orders- I almost fainted when this doctor held the door open for me one day while I was wheeling in a patient!) Participate in potlucks or bring snacks every once in a while, smile a lot, and hold the door open for staff and you’ll make friends/ helpful co-workers. As a student, on the plus side, you’ll see a lot of unique extremity and spine injuries and learn how to image them appropriately. Downside, you’ll never take a chest or abdomen x-ray, nor get fluoroscopy, portable, or C-arm practice, which is essential for when you do your hospital rotations. If I could go back, I’d do my hospital rotation first and then do my 2nd year clinic rotation here.
Medical Coder in Tucson, AZ
You will be overworked, underpaid, and your pleas of help to advance or to get more pay will fall on deaf ears. The work expectations for the back office are unrealistic and you will feel stressed out nearly everyday. It is terribly disorganized and the lack of training for your job is astonishing.
Chart Review in Tucson, AZ
This company does not know how to run a business. They care nothing of their back office who help run the entire operation. They horribly underpaid, regardless how much education or experience you have. Always an inconvenience if you have to leave for a doctors appointment. I got married during my time working there and my manager acted like it was the end of the world. We had a very sick coworker and another one go through a miscarriage, all management cared about was when they would be back in the office, making them feel bad with comments of the team having to pick up the slack. The management had no prior management experience, they fell into the job and complained everyday. This was a horrible and toxic work environment.
Medical Assistant /Externship in Tucson, AZ
Amazing experience doing my externship there . I had learned a lot of things and experienced things I wasn't able to in school. The Doctors and staff were very helpful with assisting me with all things I wasn't clear on, never ever did anyone not be helping and understanding. A wonderful group of staff and patients
