This is in response to whomever posted about Adam Jensen and Lindsey hollern. As an employee at partnership dental I can attest to the fact that all
Of your accusations are completely inaccurate and I would suggest getting correct information before you post such a lengthy comment. As for the dentist getting off at 4 pm, have you seen the time of their last appt? It is at 430 pm. How can one get off at 4 pm when their last patient arrives at 430. Have you ever delt with a patient who is in mouth pain at 730 am? I can only assume the answer to that question is no. To say that there job is Cush is absolutely inaccurate. Whether or not their school is paid for or not is none of your business. The military has their school
Paid for as well. So what???? To say that Adam yells at reception is extremely inaccurate as well. Adam (and Lindsey) and if I'm being honest, all of the dentists are extremely nice to reception and understand how difficult the job at the front desk is. Adam has on numerous occasions stood up for reception in regards to Terry and has had receptions back for quite sometime. Lindsey is one of the sweetest people who work there so for you to assume she is a terrible person is inaccurate as well. Adam fights for reception in any way he can and will go out of his was to help as will any of the dentists that work there. So I suggest keeping your mouth shut when you do not have the correct information, and if you so choose to make a comment I would also suggest having the accurate information.
Everyone who disagrees with a particular point of view refers to that point of view as "incoherent." This isn't rocket science. This is so simple that a one-celled amoeba could understand it: Allowing, much less staging and encouraging, a brutal attack on any creature who is trapped, unable to defend itself, and in considerable pain and anguish is cruel and barbaric. Think "Roman gladiators." Coherent enough for you, "pure red-blooded American" that you claim to be? "Pure red-blooded American" doesn't equal "Cruel Barbarian."
As a current employee at PHC, I have heard the rumors and comments from different employees, so I decided to read more. I have heard that Adam Jensen often yells at the receptionists and his nurse. That he complains to patients about PHC and leadership every chance he gets (very unprofessional at best). He comes off as an entitled spoiled brat. That the women dentist that works there, I have been told, is not kind at all, her patients often leave untreated and that she is rather rough and, for a lack of better terms, "bitchy" to her patients. Maybe PHC isn't the best choice for these two dentists. It appears that the dentists at PHC have a pretty cush job. Four days a week and are out of the office by 4:00. Their student loans are being paid for them. Now, this is all hearsay, however, it sounds to me like they do not appreciate their jobs. Adam, be happy you have a job. You work at a public health clinic not private practice. Stop being so negative and looking for issues to bitch about, in attempts to bolster your lawsuit. Do what you went to school to do, dentistry, work out your contract and move on. Do you think that all the negativity you are bringing to PHC causes a happy work environment for your co-workers? Clearly not. A lot of people are talking and don't have the nicest things to say about you. Opinions generally are that you are a cry baby, angry that you weren't chosen for the director position.
Hmmm? Why not end the article with......"proud sponsor of drinking and driving"? Far be it for me to be critical of alcohol, I sure do enjoy partaking in my favorite adult beverages. This however is just poor marketing and borderline irresponsible.
This happened in 1989, in Washington DC. Why is the Independent reporting on it now?
Sounds to me, like Berkoff was the ONLY one to do ANYTHING about the rumors back in the day - what about the other people who "heard the rumors".... How many were there do you think? 50? 100? Are you going after them, too, Tony? Or is this (just as it sounds) a bitter vendetta that you have against someone who has done much more with his life for the sport and its athletes than a little vindictive person like you- perhaps you are jealous of Dave's accomplishments? I'm sorry for what Ms, Currin endured- i hope she finds peace- thank god for Dave Berkoff! Go crawl back under your rock, tony!
Just curious - SCAQ Tony & Bob - what exactly are YOU doing to advocate for victims of abuse, past and present? That is, besides attempting to vilify and slander someone who has indisputably taken steps to combat and prevent this issue in sport, specifically in USAS?
Dave Berkoff serves as a volunteer on the Board of USAS - how many uncompensated hours have YOU spent, Bob, working to effect positive change? What about you, Tony - if your capacious blogs are any indication, you apparently have countless hours to spend maligning Mr. Berkoff. To your credit, at least you're not profiting from your words. Ask yourself, though - is it possible that your time and 'talent' could be spent more constructively?
In order to continue to implement policy and make a positive change to protect athletes, Dave Berkoff is EXACTLY the kind of executive member that USA Swimming needs and wants - someone who has shown decades-long dedication to the sport and the support of its athletes.
FYI-"bob" is Currin's money seeking attorney and scaq is his mouthpiece.
Dave was a peer of Currin's at the time the rumors were circulating- meaning he was a couple years older. He was not her coach, her confident, her team mate- he was an athlete like she was. She did not know him- he did not know her. Where were her roommates, team mates, PARENTS? The parents took a large settlement from Curl to keep quiet and not press charges. But according to bob and tony, Dave should have gone to the police? He should have fought Currin's battle to the end with his fourth hand knowledge about a swimmer and a coach he never even met? Bologna. This was not a case of burying his head in the sand- Dave was motivated to get involved because of all of the rumors. Daves job is much bigger than Kelly Currin's lawsuit against Curl. Since his involvement there have been many changes in USA Swimmings Safe Sport Policy and predator coaches are getting ousted. Dave is an integral part of the solution. There will not be immediate justice for every victim out there but there's a lot more hope for them with Dave as their advocate.
David Berkoff is a do nothing person. "Rumors" or not, when it comes to child molestation, you have an obligaiton to do SOMETHING. For him to dismiss what he heard as "rumors" is like throwing salt in the wound. What is he waiting for? Photos? Videos? Semen stains? What will it take for you to act? We need people in positions of authority who will act and not bury their heads in the sand.
I found an email that David Berkoff wrote to a former vice president of USA Swimming which was entered as evidence in a related matter that your readers may be interested in:
Here is a snippet from the Concussion Inc website:
“... Denying knowledge of Rick Curl, Mitch Ivey and others banging their swimmers! It’s a flat out lie. They knew about it because we (coaches and athletes) were all talking about it in the late 1980′s and early 1990′s. I was told by several of Mitch Ivey’s swimmers that he was sleeping with Lisa Dorman in 1988. I heard the whole Suzette Moran story from Pablo Morales over a handful of beers and nearly threw up. I was told Rick Curl was molesting Kelly Davies for years starting when she was 12 by some of the Texas guys. That was the entire reason I formed the abuse subcommittee. I was sick and tired of this crap. No one was standing up. No one was willing to take on these perverts.
Here is an analogy: A neighbor tells you about a child that you personally know down the street is being molested. Do you call Children Services, the police or do nothing?
Berkoff chose to do nothing.
Maybe is local constituents love him but should the rest of the membership or USA Swimming?
Now, with that in mind, does the USA Swimming, a youth organization, need or want a an executive member like that? I hope not.
it was horrible, when you work so lone for somethin, then one day you got to the job and they just tell you we are closing, when they should tell you at least one week before
nice place these people are full of it
Why hasn't PHC board posted any board meeting minutes to the County archive since 2011? (See the archive at http://www.ci.missoula.mt.us/archive.aspx.) Why aren't the names of PHC Board members listed on PHC's website similar to, for example, Butte Community Health Care Center at http://www.buttechc.com/BoardMembers.aspx? A publicly funded health care organization should be more transparent.
Im a current employee and I have mixed reviews on this ordeal. I have seen only be hear say the treatment of administration on the front line work force. The worst of the mistreatment of by supervisors comes from Terri Delgadillo to the reception staff. Her staff is terrified to ask for sick time becasue of ridicule and threatening body language. They are often told to take care of patient intake at the busiest clinic in town by themselfs with no help. The poor girls are downing and on the verg of tears because they cant keep up. She will sit in her office and tell her staff to "deal with it, and figure it out."
One the other hand there is another dept head that is very understanding and willing to put her boots on and get in the trenches as they say. I like working here, i like the people that i help to serve. I dont like being under paid (as do most). I dont know what is going to make things better as im just another cook in the kitchen.
I see that some one mentioned that one employee leaves crying. That is true i have seen that, and probably been reason for it at one point. This is a tough place to work there are ungratfull and mean people that get care here. that is the nature of the beast and we have no time for cry babies. this is the real world..... I could go on.
here is another link with info on this lawsuit. btw i know for a fact that the plaintiffs haven't spoken to the media yet. any quotes are taken directly from the paperwork filed with the court.
A friend of mine works at PHC and the stories they have told me are unbelievable at best! The hostile work environment created by other employees, not Kim, Teri or Mary Jane is terrible. This friend often leaves crying. They have gone to HR Patty B and was told to move on and/or seek counselling! This persons co-workers are cruel! However, time after time they have gone to supervisors, HR and even Kim with no avail. Moral seems very low. Pay increases/evaluations for employees are unheard of. This friend takes anti-anxiety medication before going to work. With all of the above and stories from my friend I wonder how is the patient care suffering? Clearly something needs to be done. I hope this lawsuit opens some eyes. Obviously, some changes need to be made. I commend the six who finally stood up and took a stand. It would be a shame if PHC lost federal funding due to poor management and cruel people.
@ Steve Johnson: Thanks for clearing up that you were not the person who posted as John Stevens, again, I just found it "odd". You stated that you have the highest regards for PHC employees, yet you have allowed many of us to be treated this way, knowing exactly what was going on! Where were your full regards one year and two weeks ago when I was served a letter by PDQ asking me not to return to work after having complained about sexual harrassment? That's ok, no need to respond, your actions speak loud enough! I was a dedicated employee who allowed myself to be subjected to this poor treatment because I had co-workers, patients and my family that counted on me to be there every day. I absoluetly loved my job and had never had a complaint about my performance before I was pushed out. I too don't believe in being true to who I am, I don't pretend to be someone I'm not and I 'm proud to display my name here for all to see! It's the least I can do for all of the other people that are still being treated poorly. I would be more than happy to share all of the knowledge as well as the documentation I have kept to help solidify this case. Good luck to you Mr.Steve Johnson COO. I hope that you and anyone else who has allowed this to continue will stand up now and support those dedicated employees you hold in such high regards!
Well Mr. Johnson, COO of Missoula county guess you have a lot of explaining to do about what has been going on and what has been covered up by HR, PHC board of directors, Masch, Delgadillo, and Nealon as well as many others that are under higher supervision such as yourself. Makes me wonder how far up the food chain does the corruption and blatant disregard of peoples bad actions, bad attitudes, and bad behavior goes? Maybe something that all tax payers should be asking
In response to the previous post, this is to let you know that I am not "JohnSteven." First, I have the highest regard for Partnership Health Center employees, at all levels of the organization, and I certainly do not agree with the sentiments expressed by "JohnSteven." Second, even if I did agree with those sentiments, I would not post anonymously about such a matter. That would be cowardly and unprofessional, and it's not my style. Finally, if I was going to post anonymously, I think I would be smart enough not to choose an "anonymous" name that was so similar to my real name. Thank you for the opportunity to clarify this matter. Sincerely, Steve Johnson Chief Operating Officer Missoula County 200 W. Broadway (406) 258-3293
