What I liked

The patients and calm environment however its not worth working here at all. This was the most stressful and draining job I've had an I wish there was someone who could warn me about this place when I was applying.

What I wish was different

I wish that I had realized why many of the young people that are hired here don't stay very long because of how terrible the employees are treated by the doctor. The doctor is very manipulative and cheats his patients. He goes for young college students to hire that don't know their workers rights so that he can pay us less and work us all types of ways he wants without anyone else interfering. He is very bad and impatient at training his employees. He will also at times act very passive aggressive towards you for extremely minor mistakes.

Advice

The doctor will manipulate your hours many different times to benefit his schedule more than your own, goes back on his word when he tells you he'll do something for you, and he does not grant you a break! And will make you work longer hours than you are supposed to. He will use the excuse of how you are his "assistant" to make you do things for him like cleaning up after his mess in his office, etc. If you are a person of color or a woman I don't recommend working here as the doctor is very ignorant to other peoples cultures as well and ignores boundaries between himself and younger female employees. He is very lazy, will show up at times after the first patient has arrived.
