Some feel that management is not always open with them. I haven't seen this myself. Some staffing issues, so people are needed to pick up extra shifts.

    Pros

    They offer high compensation through a productivity based production formula. Notably, you get credit for everything that you bill, regardless of whether they actually collect.

    Cons

    Be very careful as a physician about being employed by them. They have difficulty attracting specialists and use a employment model to recruit. The financial terms are generous but after you sign on, you are saddled with a very weak management team that has no significant physician representation. Accordingly, you may find yourself at a clinic where they have assigned you inadequate space or you show up for work and they are short MAs/LPNs for days on end. You are powerless to get any of these issues fixed in a timely manner. They also effectively change the terms of your compensation retroactively by giving you less credit for a procedure/service after you sign, without adjusting your minimum productivity threshold. The organization is in a very defensive posture recently as the competing health system received a $400 million donation and has completely overtaken them in recruiting new doctors and in facility expansion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They are in desperate need of physician input to guide management decisions.
