I work in a private, single physician owned practice and find that I have to take the initiative when it come to performance reviews. Every year on my anniversary, I write up a list of my accomplishments over the past year, and include what I want to work on for the next year. I then schedule a meeting with my boss and ask for a raise. I'm not going to sit around and wait for him to propose it. He's very busy, and I think it just doesn't dawn on him to deal with personnel type issues. I do go to him for clinical concerns, but will go to the practice manager for any operational issues.

Your boss may certainly be the avoidant type, or he might just be clueless. Take the initiative and request a performance review, or ask to set aside a regular time to discuss clinical issues.

One thing I have learned in the NP role is that "performance reviews" aren't really a thing. Our organization requires quarterly reviews and they literally just throw the numbers/print outs (RVUS and patient satisfaction scores) on the table and tell me to look them over. It takes 5 minutes.
