    I have been working at Bothell Pediatric Hand Therapy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This is a great place to work! I have been here full-time since February, 2018, and I am very happy here. All of the therapists here care deeply about their patients and families, and the environment here is very supportive. I have always felt comfortable asking questions when I need input, as well as voicing my opinions or concerns when issues arise. We regularly celebrate "wins" of our patients, our staff, and our clinic as a whole. The owner, Kimberly, consistently demonstrates her commitment to the therapy we do as well as to our clinic as a company, and she regularly seeks staff input and feedback regarding our policies and procedures. Working closely with therapists of other disciplines provides frequent opportunities to expand my experience and knowledge of occupational and physical challenges my patients may have, as well as ways to support them holistically, rather than just from a speech-language viewpoint. Generally, my workload is manageable, and when I have felt that I needed more time built into my schedule to devote to administrative duties, my supervisor was very understanding. Having staff here responsible for scheduling and billing means that I can truly devote my time to therapy. I have the opportunity to serve a wide variety of populations, which challenges me to stay current with continuing ed and continue to grow as a therapist. Pay and benefits in this position are competitive, and Kimberly clearly values her employees' well-being by providing sufficient PTO. I see myself staying with this company for as long as I am in the area!

    Cons

    We have had some challenges recently with a lot of turnover in the front desk staff, which has resulted in some inconsistency with scheduling procedures; however, this has been a temporary issue, and is in the process of being resolved. Some weeks, my schedule is less consistent than others (e.g. lots of cancellations during spring break and holiday weeks); however, our scheduling staff works hard to fill empty spots with fill-in patients, and I can usually fill my time with report writing and other related duties.

    I have been working at Bothell Pediatric Hand Therapy part-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Diverse caseload, opportunities for career expansion/exploration, opportunities to collaborate with other professionals, relaxed work environment, schedule flexibility, open Saturdays (can treat more patients), feeling like a valued member of the team.

    Cons

    It's a growing practice, so there is frequently the need for new systems, etc. which requires everyone be on-board.

    I worked at Bothell Pediatric Hand Therapy full-time

    Pros

    - Small company feeling - Hard working team-atmosphere - Dedicated owner - Worst days are behind - Everyone is passionate about what they do - The best feeling is knowing the company is on the verge of massive growth and that the owner plans to spend money to build a more abundant support staff

    Cons

    - Tight budget (as to be expected in the volatile small-business healthcare industry - Needs consistent and experienced management. (occasionally has owners son around which usually brings good change, but not a consistent face) - Therapists I work with complain about benefits and changes but don’t understand the complications of small businesses in healthcare - changes to how therapists get paid but it makes sense

    I worked at Bothell Pediatric Hand Therapy full-time

    Pros

    Commute was good for me

    Cons

    Lots of cons! No money to cash payroll checks! They give you a "corrective action plan" for everything. Out sick WITH a doctor's note, yep you get one! The office is dirty! Dust & cobwebs all over, even spiders coming down from above once in awhile, the window hasn't been washed in who knows how long, it's disgusting! Always out of paper towels, toilet paper, & printer paper As far as the company, it's poorly ran... therapists see patients but it's billed under another's name because that one is contracted so they get paid more... they falsely put a therapist on the schedule so a new therapist can see patients...but make it look as if the contracted therapist is the one doing the charting, seeing the patient, & billing charges... ask the patient who they saw!!! Pay is very very low here compared to other companies & it is a very stressful environment... they will go through your desk drawers when you aren't there. Even if you bring in your own filing cabinet they will break into it! So be prepared for that. "Management" is a joke! They do nothing about the situation. They say "well it is "BPHT property" you say "but there is NOTHING IN my desk anyone needs" the reply is "well if they need a document and you aren't here" again there is nothing in the desk that anyone would need! If you do work here GOOD LUCK
