Registered Massage Therapist (Current Employee) – Haldimand County, ON – 12 June 2017
Perfect company to start out in your massage career. You get steady referrals from the physiotherapist(s) you work with. I love working in a team environment and the team that I work with is great. The company however needs improvement. Depending on your clinic manager, you are just thrown into the job and have to learn as you go how the clinic runs or when you have to deal with the company (compensation reports, vacation, etc.). And it definitely depends on the individual clinic you are working for. Difficult sometimes to deal with the call centre. If you have a problem they do not respond well to it. You will get a lot of WSIB and MVA patients which you still only get a percentage from that.
Benefits, great atmosphere, vacation pay (10 days), set your own hours, compensation for CEUs
Low split (54%) and can't increase it unless you want to be a contractor (60%), Sometimes Franchise feeling
Physiotherapist (Current Employee) – Burlington, ON – 3 April 2017
Pt Health is a great workplace with great company culture. I have gained valuable experience as a physiotherapist as well as the managerial aspects of day-to-day operations of a physiotherapy clinic. There is an ongoing commitment to continuing education with courses put on throughout the company (i.e. vertigo, TMJ, pelvic floor) as well as a great network of physiotherapists, massage therapists, chiropractors and naturopathic doctors to learn from. The company has been very transparent with quarterly town halls and yearly performance reviews provide great feedback for areas of improvement as well as the years successes.

1) One-on-one direct supervision that gradually progressed to indirect supervision 2) Knowledgeable and experienced physiotherapists and PSPs 3) Diverse and varied caseload 4) Wealth of resources to consult with on the ptHealth Portal 5) Development of clinical patterns 6) Exposure to practice management (i.e. caseload management, charting policies, billing practices, role of human resource management)
Physiotherapy Assistant (Former Employee) – London, ON – 12 May 2014
I loved my job,working with seniors it's truly my passion.Before all that OHIP cuts happened I really loved to wake up and go to work every morning.I was truly blesses with the best co-workers person could ask for.And at the end of the day when I was going home I knew I made some difference in resident's life.The hardest part on this job was when some of my clients were passing away,lots of them they only had us - staff to talk to them which made everything more sad when they had to leave us.
Even though I gained great experience working for ptHealth, the management and company as a whole was challenging to work with.
Physiotherapy Support Personnel (Former Employee) – New Westminster, BC – 31 January 2014
I worked at a Physiotherapy Support Personnel for ptHealth where I was an exercise specialist who would work alongside a physiotherapist to treat patients with orthopaedic injuries. We would work with private patients as well as patients through ICBC and WCB so there was some paperwork and communication with third parties involved as well. I worked at the New Westminster location and absolutely loved my coworkers. At my clinic, we had two physiotherapists, two massage therapists, two medical office assistants and myself.
With a wage freeze, and knowing that the most I would make would be $20/hr as a Kinesiologist, I knew that I had to move on and get another job with more promise.
Loved working with all the people at the nursing home
Physiotherapy Assistant (Former Employee) – Brockville, ON – 5 November 2013
provided exercise programs individual and group, , interacted with the residents, helped to maintain a daily routine.Learned to appreciate our seniors, my co-workers were great, the hardest part of my job was when my resident was sick or passed away, most enjoyable was just spending time with them all.
spending time with the seniors
would of liked more advancement, more responsibilities
Worked for this company on two separate occasions for a total of 3 years. Was a very numbers-driven company. No employee retention whatsoever. Turnover in PSP's is very high due to low wages and no job security. Will never work for them again
Great People, good enviornment but very unorganized
Patient Care Centre Supervisor (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 7 August 2013
I had worked at PT Health starting as a part time agent for a new project of a Patient Care Centre and ended my time there as a Supervisor. I worked with great people and had a really good boss. My co-workers became my friends and I was comfortable confronting my boss about concerns that I felt needed to be addressed in any aspect of the job. The hardest part of the job was the constant daily changes. One minute were relaying one bit of information to patients and the next its wrong and there's a new policy, The most enjoyable part of the job would be the people that I worked with, they kept you motivated and were there to help each other. I feel that is essential in an office to keep it functional and running smooth.
Patient Care Representative (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 16 July 2013
This company was a great company to work for. The department I was in was a newer addition when I started. It quickly expanded and days were quick paced. I took patient calls for multiple clinics Canada wide, whether it be booking or cancelling patient appointments or answering patient / potential patient inquiries. The people that I worked with were great people and they taught me a lot. Calls would become more frequent the more clinics we took on and could be hard at times, but if you managed your time efficiently and worked with the other employees calls could be answered and handled in a timely manner.
Kinesiologist (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 27 August 2012
On a daily basis, I got to bring happiness to someone's life-brighten that persons day just by spending some time with a resident. Management was good. Co-workers were nice. I learned that I can bring joy to someone just by simply listening to them for a bit and doing the little things I can for someone.
