Employee (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 21 July 2018
Once you walk in at head office you will see how cheap this place is. This company will give you the bare minimum from vacation time (2weeks) to benefits to statutory holidays (Civic is not a holiday) to lunch breaks to work stations. Management talks about how it is a great place to work with a great culture yet they give their employees the bare minimum and have high expectations. Management is more concerned about profit than employee satisfaction. A lot of people send emails and do work outside of their regular working hours. They are also very inefficient with their time and management. There is a high turnover rate and with good reason. Management needs to up the benefits of working here otherwise they will continue to lose great talent.
We take feedback from our teams seriously. The negative view is unfortunate, in reality our priority is always treating our people and patient’s well. As a healthcare organization, we make it a priority to help patients in pain as soon as possible which is why we are open evenings, holidays and weekends. We have a lot of great healthcare practitioners working with us and we are very proud of the care they deliver. If you’d like to discuss further, we’d be happy to speak with you 905-523-5777.

My clinic was bought out and driven into the ground leaving me without a job.
Kinesiologist (Former Employee) – Riverview, NB – 4 July 2018
I dont have anything positive to say. The company was only concerned with treating as many patients as possible in a day, poor ethics in my book. Would not recomend working for this company.
Low moral among staff due to constant sales pressure.
They cheap out on their employees health insurance
an employee (Current Employee) – in canada – 28 May 2018
I am not really impressed with PT health! Being a physiotherapy company and offering services including massage therapy ..they took AWAY paramedical services (massage therapy and osteopath i care the most about) from their sunlife health insurance! not only that, the health insurance price have increased!!! greed, greed and once again greed. Please PT HEALTH gimmie a break. It is a SHAME!
Thanks for expressing your concern over the changes to our benefits package. We know not every employee will like the plan but we're hoping you are able to take advantage of some of the new benefits. We haven't removed the paramedical services. It may be a good idea for you to get in touch with the HR dept. They can explain everything that is included so you're fully aware of what you are entitled to.

Physiotherapy Assistant (Current Employee) – Windsor, ON – 8 January 2018
Great Company to work for, Independent and trusted work environment. Always treats its workers well and try's to accommodate to their every need. Love taking care of the elderly.
Ok company to work for. The clinic environment is fun and family based. Clients are nice and grateful for providers and other staffs hard work. Company lacks growth and incentives for most positions, unless a Physiotherapist.
Great place to work - benefits, competitive pay, good hours
Physiotherapist (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 20 November 2017
I have worked for pt Health as a volunteer, physiotherapy assistant and physiotherapist. I have seen some great changes over the last couple of years. They have made a consistent effort to upgrade their clinics, offer higher pay and engage their employees. There are benefits to full time employees, bonus opportunites at most positions and perks/discounts. I have been fortunate enough to move around the province and work at 3 different locations. Each location is different in how the clinic runs and operates. The staff at each clinic makes it. I love going to work everyday and have referred a number of friends to the company.
Paid lunches, good workplace culture, company perks, benefits, opportunity for bonus and advancement
Physiotherapist (Current Employee) – Hagersville, ON – 8 November 2017
pt Health is focused on improving patient outcomes and that message is felt from management and practitioners alike. As a physiotherapist I feel very supported and empowered to deliver high quality of care knowing all the booking and billing is taken care of and I dont have to worry about it. I enjoy being able to use other practitioners in the company as resources and mentors which has helped my transition as a new grad.
Great company with lots of opportunity for growth!
Physiotherapist (Current Employee) – Toronto – 8 November 2017
I had the opportunity to work in multiple clinics across the GTA and every team I worked for was very welcoming! The environment is very positive and vibrant. A very diverse team in some clinics which only adds to the patient care and experience
Head Office (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 26 October 2017
They really just dont care about their employees. Never any raises and the pay for the amount of work you do is not fair. Definitely below average for the type of job. No incentives. No acknowledgment for a job well done.
You have people making major changes and decisions that know nothing about the job. They never take input from the people that actually do the job. You have clinic managers that are physiotherapists first and therefore 90% of them know nothing about managing the clinic.
The structure of the company makes no sense, you have people managing people they never met and the people that manage are not actually responsible for the hiring, firing, disciplinging, rewarding, reviews etc of the people they manage. Makes NO SENSE.
You can be a super loyal, deficated and hardworking employee and they make you feel worthless like you dont matter at all. Your just a number, they will do whatever they want with you and if you show any kind of dislike for it they will push you out. Ive seen it time and time again.
Great company to work for; very support management and staff with incredible health benefits. Some mid-level company disorganization, not knowing whom to contact, can be a little confusing. Hours can be a little hectic for a young family, but overall, a GREAT company to work for.
Fun loving place to work as we meet various patients and feels great to help them.
Patient Care Coordinator (Former Employee) – Surrey, BC – 16 August 2017
Its was great working with this company for 5 years. Unfortunately the structural changes made to close down various clinics . Staff was very professional. Closely worked with various physiotherapist , Hand therapist, massage therapist and occupational therapist and gained knowledge about physical health,active rehabilitation etc. Also got familiar with the MSP system , ICBC , WCB benefits .
Physiotherapist (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 27 June 2017
I have worked with the company as a volunteer, physiotherapy assistant and physiotherapist. I have had nothing but positive experiences. pt Health has built a supportive network to help you along the way. They offer competitive pay, discounts on home/car insurance, cell phone, Mark's and health care benefits. There are options for group RRSP and you are paid hourly/salary so you always know your income. They also encourage you to take additional course by offering education allowances each year. Another perk is you get to work with an interdisciplinary team and they have opportunities across the country.
Patient Coo (Current Employee) – Alberta – 15 June 2017
Poor pay for an immense workload. No room for advancement after promises from management. Received one raise after over 2 years of employment and unfortunately in Alberta there is a very scarce workforce so almost forced to stay in a position with little pay.
Patient Coordinators are hired right out of school with little to no office experience and totally incompetent.
Patients are great and majority of coworkers are great but be prepared to be stabbed in the back and cut down at every opportunity.
Try to stand up for yourself and be made to feel like you are a 'tattle tale'. Definitely high school all over again and one of the worse places I have worked for in over 20 years.
Great patients and CTM is very nice and able to talk to but has no pull
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.
Contractor (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 21 March 2017
poor management. under payed. constantly changed software to slower, less functional (cheaper) software. constantly over / double booked. no accountability for mistakes in scheduling errors. very gossipy/cliquey. unprofessional.
PT call center (Former Employee) – 55 frid street – 7 March 2017
The culture at this place is horrendous. In terms of professionalism its awful as well. The work life balance is great though but just get ready to get mico manged for low pay. This job should be short term its not ideal to make a living. Management is just as bad
Medical Office Administrator - Patient Coordinator (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 17 February 2017
The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing our patients 'get well and stay well'. As the Patient Coordinator it is my duty to ensure patients are booked for treatments on a consistent and timely manner. I also co-ordinate patients extended health coverage to ensure that their treatment visits are stress-free and entirely about a positive health outcome. It makes me extremely proud to be part of a team who care about the health and well-being of every patient who walks through the door.
Patient Care Representative (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 9 January 2017
The co-workers are (usually) great. The patients are (usually) great. Past that, the job paid better than most, but had unreasonably high expectations oftentimes, and really didn't come through for their employees when necessary. Many broken promises for future advancement. Consistent deflection on renumeration and raises for "exceptional work" while the directors get perks and bonuses that really aren't merited. Within the same position, expect to do the job of 10 other people. The company will constantly strive to put more on your plate until you can't stack any higher, and then they'll tuck things under your arms as they change your role again. The company is unwilling to invest money in itself to improve, and just expects employees to pick up extra duties to fill those gaps. Some of the staff are amazing, but the company culture is like a popularity contest. The CEO simply cherry-picks her favourites, promoting and siding with them while any imagined slight is held against you. Proven loyalty to the company is not valued as the hardest workers get their souls sucked directly from them while being pushed to work harder without compensation, acknowledgement or appreciation.
Head office positions will be rife with petty conflict and office politics, while clinics receive no support and get neglected. That being said, there are some good times to be had if you love frustrating management, and don't have any future aspirations.
PCC pay is decent to start, Some amazing co-workers, There's a food truck that comes by occasionally
Raises don't exist, Constantly changing job responsibilities, Disconnect between management and everyone else, The food truck meals can be pretty heavy
