  1. "Medical Records Technician"

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Texas Orthopedics part-time

    Pros

    Great pay for college students looking to make steady money in the summer or throughout the school year. Manager was VERY flexible with part-timer schedule and is willing to work with you on meeting your hourly work goals.

    Cons

    Training was a bit confusing as more than one person trained me. Also, there was conflicting information during these multiple training sessions.

    Advice to Management

    Many rotating full-time staff left the role of "team lead" up in the air. Stability in having an experienced employee train new hires is beneficial to have standardized training.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Texas Orthopedics part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Depending on office, can look forward to collegial environment
    Rarely a dull moment; PTs (and therefore, PTAs and techs) have full patient load with some interesting cases
    Opportunities to socialize outside of work
    Techs get a ton of hands-on experience

    Cons

    PTs are mostly old school and modality focused
    No explicit focus on evidence-based practice
    Recent DPT grads have no incentive to be innovative, and don't have much autonomy
    No formal training for techs, even those with NO prior experience, is scary and feels like a liability (not to mention poor practice for patients)
    Techs paid $10/hour, front desk staff $1-2 more. . . what do you think the quality of care is if staff are paid as much as they would be if they worked at the mall?
    Certain surgeons are known internally for their sloppiness
    Some therapists are openly racist and xenophobic in the clinic, especially toward patients who don't speak English (witnessed multiple times at their midtown location)

    Advice to Management

    Texas Orthopedics gives the impression the they're happy with "good enough." To be anything more than that, they should hire great rehab staff and then trust them to do their jobs (and pay them accordingly). Standards for rehab should be based on evidence. Patients should get more time with PTs and techs should be trained on safe and effective therapeutic exercise. I wouldn't send a friend here for treatment after seeing behind the curtain.

    I have been working at Texas Orthopedics part-time

    Pros

    great feedback from administration and supervisors, decent atmosphere, good for pre med students

    Cons

    facilities are very average, sometimes the physicians don't give a lot of feedback and can seem intimidating

    Advice to Management

    Continue feedback to scribes and effective reorganization of scribe program, keep it up!

    I worked at Texas Orthopedics full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    matching 401k, good PTO, most doctors are nice.

    Cons

    poor training plans. pay is below average for market average. entry level workers are treated poorly and reminded that they are easily replaced. raises are a joke, and annual performance reviews are never on time.

    When I was hired I was told there would be a 90day raise if my performance was better than expected, then on my 90days I was told with a smile that they do not do 90day raises ever.

    Management keeps workers in the dark on purpose, and changes their mind about policies and procedures constantly. There is no employee appreciation, and employee satisfaction is across the board their biggest issue.

    Advice to Management

    there is no point. Management is too far gone and will not listen to any feedback given about their choices. They don't listen to their workers, and they never will.

    Pros

    great co-workers, Doctors are friendly, friendly staff.

    Cons

    small wage increases, no positive acknowledgement, Upper level management only cares about accounting and figures and not people. Has a high turnover

    Advice to Management

    Treat people, (employees and patients) like people and not numbers..Upper management has to be changed.

    I worked at Texas Orthopedics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some times were marked with a semblance of camaraderie. 401k plan was very good.

    Cons

    Raises less than 2%, and yearly reviews always overdue, No award for actual value added to company, merely seniority, numbers, and time served considered in review. Appearance is part of review rubric, and no one knows how the highest score of appearance is assessed. Little to no opportunity for growth in the business structure. Culture and values of company do not place patient care #1, schedules are packed causing burn out and negativity.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your worker bees more, change review system to assess real value added.

    Pros

    Organized, don't take work home with you (depending on position)

    Cons

    Company is very frugal, doctors make all the decisions, and it's hard to work your way up. There are a few people that have been there for 5+ years but I always question why. I think it's because all the PTO they have accrued. There is poor office morale. Much of the staff works for a particular set of doctors but never actually speaks to them or see them for that matter.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your staff -- make them feel you appreciate them.

    Pros

    There is always room to move up but that's only if you fit in the "right clicks".

    Cons

    Getting low-balled in salary as well being under-minded by doctors and unappreciated for work well done.

    Advice to Management

    Don't pick favorites by discriminating
