One thing I learned about working for a doctor in new private practice, is that some of them will use you only to get the practice stable, once it's stable financially they have no problem replacing people who were there the whole time helping to get the office up and running smoothly. I once worked for a doctor at a hospital for two years when he decided to go into private practice and asked several of his staff to quit the hospital with him and join his private practice, telling us when he profits, we will all profit financially. Well that profit for the employees never happened after he became successful. A year later when the staff that went with him to private practice asked him about the raise he promised us at one year in new practice. His response " If any one of you don't like what you make on your paycheck you can leave because I got many people who want your jobs and you can be replaced. Long story short, he used the staff who worked for the hospital with him to help him get his private practice started, once it was successful, he said we were replaceable. So in my opinion if your doctor don't care enough about his bills etc then trust your instincts or else you will probably end up jobless soon with no resources of income until someone else hires you. That's what happened to me, after a total of seven and a half years dedicated years altogether of working my butt off for him, he terminated my employment when I told him to not yell at me in front of patients, that was something that should be done in private. When I left there was only one girl that remained still employed out of the 5 girls that quit the better paying job at the hospital to join him in private practice.
