As much as I am grateful for having a job, especially during such trying times, I can’t help but ask myself why I have stayed at this office for as long as I have. I work very long hours, fill in for every position in the practice whenever necessary (which is often due to the many faces that have come and gone in the past 6 years), I am on call day and night for emergencies and last minute requests, and have had little increase in pay since I started at this practice 6 years ago. Additionally, I have only been out sick once in the last six years, whenever I request off for vacation it’s an issue, and I can only take time off when the doctor is on vacation.
I’d like to say that the most upsetting condition of all is lack of appreciation for all the blood, sweat, and tears I have put in to this practice from day one. The doctor’s controlling and micromanaging nature has let to an overall decline of morality within the office. I have been delegated all the responsibilities for an office manager without the title or the pay. Without the title, the doctor knows it has become very difficult to do my job as I am being constantly challenged by other employees on my authority. I am unable to hold anyone accountable as office manager, and cannot ask anyone to complete tasks and therefore I end up having to do it myself……….well NO MORE.
You are our leader and what you say and do affects the entire practice.
THIS NEEDS TO CHANGE.
