They are so very nice to their employees. They stand up for you if a parent is rude. The docs call us by name and we call them by their first names also. There is little "you are a nurse" attitude (of course, there is some but not much and everyone think that particular doctor is a butthead and he doesn't have many friends). We go out to eat and drink and party with our doctors. SOOOO, I can tell you move around try different areas and different facilities. If you are still unhappy, come to fort worth to play!
