    Pros

    Slim to none. A few decent co-workers (but they never stay)

    Cons

    Misleading company. Disorganized corporate staff. Force tactics on employees. Double talk. Revolving door of physicians to nurses to Ma's. All about the numbers for monetary bonus purposes..hit the set quota for vein destruction (not Restoration ) and get a monthly cash bonus. Push ppl into procedures.. set up multiple procedures on individuals to generate more insurance reimbursements. Corporate makes false promises to emploees from salary down to hours. Traveling 100's of miles between sites is required on a weekly basis for the non favorites. Non physician tech staff performing out of their scope of practice in companys surgical settings. Scary! Unskillful MDs in a few regions left to perform procedures. Multiple patient complaints and refusals to return for subsequent treatments.

    Advice to Management

    Work on professionalism. Legitimize practices before chapter 11 happens !

    Pros

    People are awesome, and the company is run by a doctor who understands that the patients come first, and the team that treats them is follows closely behind.

    Cons

    Busy place, the medical director is tough and demands that you work hard. However, he is fair and works just as hard as he demands you do. Hard to criticize or complain if he works harder than everyone else.

    Advice to Management

    Growth is so fast that sometimes it can be overwhelming. Make sure the people that are being brought in have the same values, work ethic, and concern for patients as what got the company where it is today.

    Pros

    The co-workers are the best reason to work for this company. Compensation not to bad.

    Cons

    Over-worked employees. Some employees working 14 hour days cause for many mistakes. Large exodus of employees over 200 in 2 years. This company lost 20 doctors in 2 years. Working with mediocre doctors. RN's being replaced with uneducated medical assistants. Upper management manages by Intimidation and screaming. Upper management is destroying the company. Employee morale is very low. Employees only doing what is necessary. NUMBERS is what it is all about. Not patient care. Doctors and staff receive BONUS for number of procedures. Treatment plans have too many procedures. Doctors are in competition with each other for number of procedures performed and quickest time in procedures. NOT GOOD. I would tell patients to run and not stay with this company.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of present Upper Management. Dead wood. Over compensated. Change the name and start over. The name Center for Vein Restoration - you are not restoring veins you are destroying veins.

    Pros

    Co-workers, a majority of them, were great to work with. The CEO is a great doctor with a good reputation in the community, I would never take that from him.

    Cons

    There is no leadership here. There is never positive reinforcement, as you only hear about what you have done wrong. Poor communication. Upper management is never wrong. If you ask questions about why things are being done a certain way, you don't get an answer, just "that's the way it is". Unethical practices, if you have a license be careful, you are at risk of losing it. Too much rotation of staff to different locations and schedule would change everyday. Appointments would be so close, you were always behind just to play catch up at the end of the day. This could make for an, unplanned, long day which complicates life at home. Policies written by those who have never practiced healthcare. No room for advancement with this company. Exit interview requested twice, never called regarding my request.

    Advice to Management

    Allow the staff that's working with the patients to make some of the decisions, at least ask their opinion. May want to consider taking a close look at the management between yourselves and the office staff, they are part of the problem. Work at building morale amongst the staff because if you listen closely, I mean really listen, you may just learn something that could help move the company in the right direction because it's slowly going down the tubes.

    Pros

    Many previous posts have considered the company run by a physician is a negative. I will say that part of the company's strength is that it is run by a physician who always has the patients and the clinical staff in mind. This is the first company I have ever worked for in which clinical outcomes and patients satisfaction come above and beyond everything else. I believe this is because of the physician leadership. Because clinical care is so important and volumes are so high, I realize that I am so much better now at what I do than I ever was at my previous jobs.

    Cons

    It is an aggressively growing company and change is part of the culture. Volumes tend to swing tremendously, and depending on the season, it can get very busy. You do work here and it is not a place for the weak.

    Advice to Management

    Clinical leadership has been a strength of the company since the beginning. Do not change!


  11. Love the company - sorry had to leave for personal reasons

    Pros

    Doctors very pssionate about what they do - lead by a very energetic CEO. Great to see a growth company still thinking first about the patient.

    Cons

    If you are lazy and just for a paycheck you will not last here

    Advice to Management

    Please do not ever move your focus from the patients. CVR will continue to thrive as long as you continue to put 'patients first'.
