Healthline Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Healthline Media, Inc. is an American website and provider of health information headquartered in San Francisco, CA. It was founded in 2006, and established as a standalone entity in January 2016.As of March 2020, it had a global ranking by Alexa of 212.
A dissapointed former employee said this about Healthline Media, Inc.: "They set you up with failure with constant changing of territories and office policies, adding and subtracting things you needed to remember weekly. Poor management came from the top down, and concerns that were voiced were never heeded." Here is a Second opinión about the work environment:"These guys hire and fire people as though they are toilet paper. They refuse to allow flexible working hours and are do not treat their employees well."
DME Technician (Former Employee) says"Do not waste your time here. Nepotism, worst management I've ever seen, no room for advancement. They don't follow they're own policies and procedures and they will throw you under the bus for it the first chance they get. You will %100 wake up at 3 am for a service call, just to find out they want you to come in later than your scheduled so they don't have to pay you for it. The workload continues to increase as your pay stays the exact same over the years. They'll dangle raises in your face like a carrot for years before you ever see anything. Just my experience."
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) says"Uness you are a friend of the managers, if so you have it made. You don't have to work, can visit and talk all day and take selfies, because you know at the end of the day they will have others work overtime to do your work for you. Upper management has no idea who does the work and really does not care as long as they get the money in their pocket to live large, while employees have to beg for raises that never come.Nothing done for employees, while managers and upper management constantly going on trips together and have the audacity to post pictures about their fun. And forget Crristmas parties or even a meal, the Christmas bonuses went down to almost nothing, slap to your face., hope you dont have famile or children to buy for. They used to be a family oriented company, do these things for employees, but like the old saying " the more money you make the greedier they get", but again management post pictures of their great Christmas parties!Lunch hour, bresksHigh school mentalityWe care deeply about our employees and realize that they are a very large part of what makes the company great. We encourage all employees to contact Human Resources if they have concerns about management or other any other aspect of their employment."
Billing Specialist (Former Employee) says"Wouldn’t waste time working for this company, poor management, poor training, co- worker clicks and high school drama, they would rather spend their time taking selfies all day instead of working. Management doesn’t even know how to do their jobs let alone train you to do the job properly and expect you to learn how to do it if they can’t even do their jobs!!As a company, we are always trying to improve and create a better work environment for our employees. We are continuously looking for feedback and we will continue striving to have the best workplace possible. We encourage all employees to contact Human Resources if they have concerns about management or other any other aspect of their employment."
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) says"I enjoyed those that I worked with. However this company was not organized and created a stressful work environment. We filled durable medical equipment orders daily, which included verification of insurance, reviewing medical records for proper detailed information. We were responsible for closing out our own accounts, which was not implied at the beginning of the job task. Answering the phones became a responsibility, as it is considered a job within itself. The hardest part about the job was having multiple responsibilities without being given a platform to complete the job and the goals that were set along the way. Things always changed and nothing was ever solid.It was not a far drive from homeShort Lunches ( 30 mins)As a company, we are always trying to improve and create a better work environment for our employees. We are continuously looking for feedback and we will continue striving to have the best workplace possible. We encourage all employees to contact Human Resources if they have concerns about management or other any other aspect of their employment."
CSR - Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) says"Fast Paced Company loyal not the best environment for a family friendly need, Patients are well loved and taken care of. need for management training.Good pay fast pacedNot family friendlyAs a company, we are always trying to improve and create a better work environment for our employees. We are continuously looking for feedback and we will continue striving to have the best workplace possible."
Manager (Former Employee) says"Regional managers are atrocious. They are lazy and dont know how to do the job. Always short staffed with no support staff. The support staff they do have, dont help. It used to be a good company but went down hill fast. I wouldnt wish my worst enemy on this job. The stress isnt worth it.BenefitsNo breaks, short staffed, no support from management, money driven with no raises, forged evaluations!!, horrible HR"
Billing Clerk (Former Employee) says"It was like being in high school again with all the pettiness from co-workers and management. Management expected certain employees to work 50+ hours a week to get a job done instead of hiring and training additional help, while others were allowed to take multiple breaks daily and be away from their work areas for extended periods throughout the day. They would change procedure without knowledge of the reason current procedures were in place. Could be a good place to work for some people, but it is very stressful, and clique-ish like high school. If you weren't a partier (drinker) you don't fit in.As a company, we are always trying to improve and create a better work environment for our employees. We are continuously looking for feedback and we will continue striving to have the best workplace possible. We encourage all employees to contact Human Resources if they have concerns about management or other any other aspect of their employment."
Patient Service Representative (Former Employee) says"Layover Rate it high, No stable management, favorites towards employees who been there longer. No raise, and they give you more work for nothing. Not worth it15 min breaks and weekends offbad managmentHealthline does care deeply about its employees, and realizes that they are a very large part of what makes our company great. We encourage all employees to contact Human Resources if they have concerns about management or other any other aspect of their employment."
Customer Service (Former Employee) says"Let's start off that Healthline was recently bought out by a larger, national company. Healthline made a lot of mistakes doing this, and in turn screwed over the employees AND patients. All benefits of working for a smaller, local company vanished. Here are few issues I had while working here. Healthline used to have a good training program when I started. We had a few trainers and we were trained for a few weeks before being allowed to do things on our own. New hires are now trained by a single, complete fool who doesn't know how to do her job. No one knows what they are doing, because the training is horrendous. Thus the branch and the manager has to train the employee and take up their time when they could be doing other things. Dissolving the training occurred long before the company was bought out. Pay is good IF the higher-ups like you. I ended up making more than most of the people in my position. Other people are making pennies for a decidedly difficult job that could pay more. I can easily go work for a doctor's office or hospital and get compensated handsomely. But, I was in a bind when I was offered the job so I took it and frankly didn't know better. (Benefits were pretty good. Generous PTO, 401k, holidays off and so on. Solid hours MOST of the time, because the owners kept changing opening and closing times for a while.) Work processes changed a lot. If you can handle change, great then you will have no problem. If you can't handle change and can't handle fast paced work, you're going to get booted. But don't do too good of job, otherwise you will"
customer says"Healthline consistently uses abusive language like “sick” and “fat” and frequently miss uses terms like “addictive” and “addiction” in their “health” and “weight loss” articles. Their “experts” are severely slanted towards their own personal unhealthy food biases. They constantly demonize specific food groups. Their “experts” frequently contradict one another in their personally biased articles. Not balanced reporting. Entirely contradictory and false “science.” You can read on Healthline that experiences such as a Grandma baking cookies with a Grandchild likely sets people up for a lifetime of unhealthy emotional attachment to food. Heavily slanted towards extremely restrictive dieting. Heavily slanted towards severe calorie restriction. Healthline claims that if you see food as something to enjoy and embrace as part of celebrating life you are “addicted” and have “unhealthy emotional attachments” to food. “Experts” Frequently miss use the term “addiction” with absolutely no shame or consideration for the damage the miss use of such a term causes. Even more insulting? Healthline’s most biased and offensive “expert” also has the audacity to post articles about the destructiveness of disordered eating and body negativity. Disgusting, personally biased, abusive, shameful."
Fred Joseph says"Dishonest websites are trying to corner legit markets. I warned my uncle, but he did not listen me. So, he had worst online shopping experience with healthline.com . These guys declare to provide permitted anabolic products, but in fact they don’t have any stock available with them. They take money from customer and then vanish away. You will never get any response from their customer service team. It is a perfect example of ghost Enterprise. On the other hand, I am happy customer of (SteroidShop.is) for their timely supply of material as well as quality of products. Do you need permitted anabolic products for bulking, cutting or body strengthening? they can fulfill all of your needs. All products are available at affordable prices. Only top-class brands, developed by well reputed and renowned organizations of the world and shipped through top line courier organizations. A-grade quality and timely delivery is guaranteed."
Michael Mac says"I ordered a blood pressure monitor from healthline 11 days ago now. They took my money almost immediately after I had ordered the product. I would have thought they would have got back to me to explain why it is taking so long . I did email them and they sent me a reply with a tracking number but there was no way the tracking number could be used. The experience with healthline has left me feeling rather insecure that I am going to receive my product and my mind is thinking about how I am going to get my money back rather than looking forward to using the product. They are based in Stockport which is not that far from me so I don't know why it would take so long . I would not buy a product from them in future or recommend them to anybody else."
Mareszka Fleming says"Be warned! I don’t think this healthline official company exists. I ordered 2 oxymetres on the 11th Nov, I tried to phone the number provided. It’s a scam as I dialled it I realised the whole thing is a scam. No such phone no. 0987654321. I feel so stupid."
Mr Neville Brown says"Urgent Order (1740) for BP Unit. Delivery said to be 3 to 6 days. Eight days on and Tracker gives little meaningful info. Healthline have failed to "translate" to give a steer as to when my order will be delivered. Don't need this hassle in my present poor state of health."
B R says"Unfortunately, several articles I have read have been scientifically inaccurate and biased in the reporting. Most often, important information is left out or simplified. As a medical professional, I would stay away from Healthline. Lastly, the inability of the authors to state the sexes for politically correct reasons is scientifically inaccurate, confusing and ridiculous."
Kaushal Kumar says"Don't use this website. They will not Report you on Time. If you have 3-4 days then this is ok."
Jeffrey Hotson says"This is one of the least reliable online resources of supposedly objective information that I've come across. They are frequently self-contradictory and laughable. If you check their credentials and are gullible you may think they are legitimate. But with a half on some effort you can see they're full of crap. It's irritating to try and find a legitimate answer to a serious question and have this junk come out on top. Con artists."
James Jackson says"My home O2 machine has been broken and making no oxygen going on two weeks. I call daily but get no answer. After leaving message I still get no callback. Today I went into a nearby office and was informed someone would be out in the next hour (BIG LIE). No one never showed up. These people can not be trusted."
Ezra says"They lie about things they are paid to lie about, then spam google search results with garbage."
Antonyy Kingg says"Forces tracked ads. Which is illegal."
ann eurism says"Whoever is in charge of rating the reviews is not doing their job. The best and most honest reviews are given 0-2 stars, while all the dis honest or mis-informed reviews get high ratings. Very very misleading. -10 stars."
Bouginess says"I find it a bit bias on some articles."
Porta Charge.co.uk says"Articles related to science and food do not seem to reflect current findings in studies and studies which are used are heavily biased funded studies promoting a particular agenda so very questionable science findings."
EpistemeUM says"Check out the page on their site for: Ethmoid Sinusitis "Sinuses help to filter, clean, and humidify inspired air. They also keep your head from becoming too heavy." I was reading this after thinking, "Healthline. I think I remember reading some pretty sketchy things here." Awful. Really. Don't take much at "face" value here (nyuk)."
Jennifer says"The evidence review process is misleading. Many of the references come from PubMed Central, which they note as a highly reputable source. However, it’s not the database they should be noting as reputable evidence. That database just stores the individual articles, it is not the original reference/source. Although they link to the reference, to be considered credible evidence, the reference itself and the study methods described in the article must be reviewed for bias and found to be low risk of bias. Many of the articles linked as sources are narrative review articles on the topic and not original research. Those types of review articles don’t qualify as real evidence according to the principles of evidence-based medicine. Evidence comes from original studies and systematic reviews/meta-analyses of multiple studies. The level/strength of evidence varies by study design and quality, but Healthline does not appear to evaluate the evidence in detail (ie, perform critical appraisal) to determine its validity. I have 15 years of experience in evidence-based medicine and critical appraisal and would not recommend Healthline as a strong source for evidence-based content, although the articles are fairly well written and provide general overviews on topics that might prompt readers to do more research on their own."
Derek Lofty says"I ordered an Oxymeter Pro which cost £39.99 from Healthline. There was nothing to say that it was going to be dispatched from China. I needed it urgently so that I could check my oxygen levels having just been discharged from hospital. It took about two weeks to arrive! Whilst it works it is a poor quality piece of equipment. Certainly will not buy anything else from them."
