In the past months, I have heard of many associates being fired, leaving their jobs for new ones or expressing general unhappiness about their work issues. This concerns me, not only because I am an associate but because it speaks to a common problem many practice owners experience.
I may have laughed a bit too hard reading this. The answer to all of these scenarios is - the associate isn't being paid.
I get. She was asked to write an article. But its like a focus group gathered around to talk and the only rule was don't talk about the main issue more than once. There is no world where any of the other things are happening - and the associate is being paid. Talking down to your associate? Yeah, I bet he's being paid well. Overworked? More like, working for free.
Let's write a missive to the black heart and soul of this profession as if a person who doesn't let their associate see new patients can be reasoned with.
Anyway, empty garbage podiatry publications aside - my thanks to this forum for always telling it like it is. For letting people know - yeah, you should be unhappy.
