I'll make this simple for everyone, you've probably already read countless reports about this man and his companies, so by now you probably just need to use your best judgment. Dr. Stephen Cosentino is a bad individual, and I regret the very day that he came across my life. From the moment I started working for him, I saw that the company was sketchy, I was only working there for about a week when I saw 3 employees come and go without explanation. And it was never a peaceful "I'm sorry, things aren't working out, we'll have to let you go" type of thing, it almos ever ended up in a bad argument, with Stephen screaming and calling the person out and almost throwing them out the door, threatening to call the police for absolutely no reason.

Working conditions are pitiful, people work the hours he wants them to work, if you are 10 minutes late all hell breaks loose, but try leaving on your regular work hours and he flips off and starts screaming. If you think working late at Empire Medical Web, Rx Medical Web or AAOPM, means you get overtime, think again, to get compensated for your regular hours is already pulling teeth. And when I say overtime, I mean whole weekends, 3 hours after your regular hours or more. All this while Stephen himself only shows up 3 times a week, and when he shows up he comes in after lunch time, and sits on his desk coming up with stupid ideas on how to make more money screwing over clients. And the list of those ideas is gigantic, from promotions with prizes that never existed, to satisfaction guarantees that make you think you can try the company out only to reveal that there are absolutely no refunds ever if you don't like it and try to get your money back.

Some of the doctors that teach the courses are the same doctors that were taking the courses only a few weeks back, but if you look on the website you'll only find "SPECIALISTS" on the faculty page. His accountant William Horninger is also one of the teachers. You read it right, his ACCOUNTANT teaches doctors how to practice medicine, all this without a medical license, there's even a lawsuit going on about that, where he injected a patient and inflicted permanent damage. 

While I worked for him I felt disgusted at the things he did to his customers, this goes without saying but I hope he shuts his doors soon so no one else has to suffer only to help this man live a lifestyle thats incompatible with his reality.

#1 UPDATE Employee

Disgruntled Employee Attack

AUTHOR: Office Manager - ()

Sorry to put a stop to the drama and fiction since we know that is more entertaining, but for those who actually want real information about the company, you may be interested in reading this.

You can actually see real reviews by going to YOU TUBE where you will see helpful, accurate, and truthful videos from real life attendees, not anonymous posts like you see here. We thank our valued Physicians and Nurses who have attended our workshops for the HUNDREDS   of “TRUE AND REAL” testimonials. (That’s a lot and we just started taking these videos recently. We have trained thousands of health care professionals to date).  

It is unfortunate to report that we had a separate company who performed marketing services and website design. We made the mistake of hiring web designers who were young kids with no education and no future, and after getting caught for stealing, incompetence, substandard work performance and much more, were terminated. Angry over losing their jobs, they began writing negative posts about our services. The posts are ridiculous, we are not involved in a money laundering or Ponzi scheme; I don’t even know what that is except what I have seen in movies.  For those of you who have read enough and realize these “anonymous posts” are just malicious attacks, but still want to learn what real doctors and nurses have to say, check out the YOU TUBE videos from ACTUAL, REAL LIFE Attendees.

Dr C is a board certified licensed physician and specialist in Aesthetics.  For the disgruntled unemployed who wrote this and are reading now, sorry to disappoint you but our seminar company continues to perform well and our Physicians and Nurses truly appreciate our services. These anonymous statements mean nothing to our readers who are educated and smarter than you think. Incidentally, other than these anonymous posts, Dr. C has an impeccable reputation in the “real” medical community and has ZERO malpractice claims or actions from the Board of Medicine or any other governing agency which is actually rare for Physicians in South Florida with over 20 years experience in Medicine.

 More importantly than my positive statements about our staff, WATCH THE YOU TUBE videos for actual, REAL LIFE VIDEOS taken from actual patients, not the anonymous statements you see here. For all our valued clients, we thank you for your continued support and appreciation. To schedule a visit to our office or to meet our staff, feel free to call us at 855-635-9578

Please contact Donna Howell at 850-245-4444 x8330.  She is aware of the situation.  There is a big pending lawsuit that will most likely close Empire down once and for all.
