Medical Support Specialist (Former Employee), Capitol Heights, MD – November 7, 2013
Pros: rare staff outings
Cons: short breaks, poor healthcare, low salaries for the amount of work being done
A typical work day at Concentra was not very typical at all. Patients were always upset because our wait times were ridiculous. Once the medical assistants did everything that needed to be done to prepare our patients for the doctors they sat and waited for hours at a time just to have a 10-15min evaluation from the doctors. Management didn't really – more... step in to help the chaos much but found ways to soothe irritated patients with coupons of free meals from stores nearby. I loved my co-workers and besides my patients who I saw on a regular basis and my love for the healthcare field they were the only thing that made me return to work everyday with a smile. The most enjoyable part of my job was seeing a patient come in happy, become upset at the wait or performance of the doctor, and than leaving back happy again because we as the medical assistants did something to change their mood or make their visit a little better. – less
A very warm and comfortable place where everyone works together to supply all needs to he patients.

Front Office Specialist (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TX – July 4, 2014
Pros: pto when your allowed to take it
Cons: bad manager
My day would start with a line of patients out the door. With wait times for drug screens/physicals and work comp dr visits that consistently were in the 3 hour range. Irate patients yelling at office staff and a manager who blamed the front office staff for not giving out wait times. When we did give out the right time, we were yelled at my management. – more... I was constantly berated by my Hispanic coworkers for not being bilingual and the manager promoted this. High amounts of favoritism to certain employees and rules that only apply to the employees that the manager does not like. – less
