Excellent Work Environment, Fast Paced, Interesting Work
clinic staff (Current Employee) – various – March 1, 2018
The clinics are busy and the work can be stressful, but lots of compassion, teamwork, and positive attitudes. A great launching pad for those considering a medical career. Compensation and benefits are good, and this company will advance people from within, and also encourages learning and ongoing training.
Medical Billing Specialist (Current Employee) – Belleuve, WA – February 2, 2018
Currently Washington Center for Pain Management is having some growing pains. There have been many changes - some good and some bad. The company has lost many employees of late from low pay and not enough employees to cover the needed positions.
It has been a good place to work but very stressful of late because of so many people leaving.
Teams work together to accomplish what need to be done
Not enough employees for the work that needs to be done.
Charge Entry Specialist (Former Employee) – Bellevue, WA – January 22, 2018
This is a warning to anyone thinking of applying. Do not work here. The management is dysfunctional, unethical, money hungry and disorganized. It’s a family operated company and all they care about is making money. They do not care about the patients much less the employees. Very high turnover.
Licensed Practical Nurse (Former Employee) – Edmonds, WA – January 18, 2018
The clinic was ran by family members that had no place in healthcare. There was little room for advancement and the benefits did not provide adequate coverage, especially for PTO. This was 7 years ago so I can only hope it has improved. However I am now working with another prior WCPM employee that left not too long ago that feels the same way as myself. Workplace culture was NOT GOOD.
Environment with an emphasis on learning and teaching
Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Olympia, WA – August 6, 2017
Washington Center for Pain Management is the best place to work to learn everything you would like to know about pain management and options to treat diverse forms of pain. This position provides an excellent education to anyone looking to proceed to a graduate degree in medicine.
Medical Assistant Certified (Former Employee) – Everett, WA – July 5, 2017
They don't value truly certified Medical Assistants they hire "medical scribes" and real certified medical assistants do not get the compensation that they deserve. Turn over rate for employees is astronomical. Disorganized. Terrible work environment - stay clear. On the brightside coworkers are fun and from all the reps that come through you get free lunches.
free lunches / fun coworkers
terrible work environment / terrible pay / dis organized
Mostly friendly environment with a few exceptions.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – April 11, 2017
Typical day of work was fun. LOTS of free food from drug reps and you also get to learn about new drugs coming out. The coworkers were extremely fun to work with and so were some of the providers. However, some providers expect a lot out of you as if you went to medical school but all in all it was a great learning experience. The clinic manager was one of my favorite people to work for. Very understanding and was always available for your needs.
Slowly becoming hostile and a sexist work environment
Independent Surgical tech, C-arm operator (Current Employee) – Washington State – January 25, 2017
Because the company is family owned they have incredible bias interests in only how to make more money, the employees always come second. Most managers have zero experience and become overwhelmed leading to a high employee turnover
Family owned/run business makes this very toxic place to work for
Healthcare (Current Employee) – Bellevue, WA – September 2, 2016
Family owned and run business makes this very toxic place to work for MA, schedulers, lab workers, and providers. CEO is brother of lady who runs surgery center and she is married to one of the doctor partners...lots of ongoing management and personal conflicts because of this.
pain management group is owned by bigger group called Summit that has tried to own lots of the services they refer to, like urgent care, spine surgery, labs, compounding pharmacy, ambulatory surgery and procedure center and Zeeks pizza (you will get tired of eating this in admin). trying to promote growth they are pretty agressive with internal referrals and i think it hurts and costs patients in the end and they try to keep it secret. Trying to grow to quickly without knowing how to execute a plan.
Lots of rumors they are under investigation which i wouldnt be surprised if they were. Pretty bad patient service in scheduling especially but also docs treat ing patients like addicts who only deserve 2 minute visits, get a pain med refill and go in a cup for urine test they sent to the lab they own and probably overcharge patients for. basically no employee yearly review prob because management can't complement anyone but can only complain. CEO and his close circle are paranoid and have put cameras around every clinic to watch all employees and probably patients, also can't handle any criticism or listen to any other opinions...a shame because theres lots of good people who work there. They have zero trust of the people they hire, and it shows. Lots of promises to promote that never pan out becausemore... they he just wants to keep you on and under paid for as long as possible.
if you stay long enough they probably let you into the inner circle of favorites and have you do the CEO's bidding and paranoid requests but prepare to bite your tounge when everyone you started with leaves for better jobs or been mysteriously fired when they speak up. job turnover is so high its embarassing. Not worth the job they offer, which will be low anyway. Keep shopping around but dont worry about waiting on their offer because they are desparate and always have jobs listed and they will have another an opening soon.
Don't be surprised if the next review is a 4 or 5 star glowing review because instead of making any real changes to management or how they treat employees the CEO will make someone in the company post a fake review to save face.less
zeeks pizza, job security because of high turnover and nobody wants to stay
punishment culture, not positive, management retaliation, high turnover, too much zeeks pizza
DME Coordinator (Former Employee) – Renton, WA – January 8, 2016
I loved working here , the Providers and MA;s were great people where there to help and teach you some thing if you need or were willing to learn it. They were all friendly and I got great experience from working with.
CMA (Former Employee) – Renton – September 3, 2015
Was hired as a CMA but did the work of a clinic coordinator. Turn over very high. Poorly managed. Was told it was a stable company at a full 40 hours a week. Then the hours were cut followed by a lay off. Would never go back even if asked.
billing specialist (Current Employee) – bellevue wa – August 14, 2015
cool place to work because of the pay but overly micro managed..... everyone is out for themselves. you don't have a team environment i just don't see it here. everyone seems to be out for themselves. You don't have a basic structure on how to status old A/R it just sits on the books, gathering dusk.
