I have been working at US Oncology full-time (More than 5 years)
Working side by side with the oncologist by seeing patients, implementing tests, treatments, and all of his follow-up and new patient notes while in the room. Also, knowing that the Doctor's time is no longer taken up by hours of dictating.
Having to stand for up to 6 hours at a time.
Advice to Management
Provide scribe chairs in the clinical area to use while physicians are not seeing patients or in meetings.
I applied through other source. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at US Oncology (Orlando, FL) in September 2015.
I was in a different state when I first contacted the company. They emailed me to make me aware that a per diem position was becoming available in Nov. 2015 I was interviewed over the phone by the directer of the Cancer Center as well as the chief therapist. They seemed very pleased and proceeded to send out to me all the paperwork, such as the employment application and various other forms that a new hire needed to fill out
I did not negotiate. I received what I believed was a reasonable offer, but most important was that I was moving out of state, leaving my current job and I definitely needed to secure a job in my new state.
