Well-established, clinically strong pediatric ophthalmology group seeks 4th MD for partner track. As the only pediatric ophthalmology group in all of Queens and eastern Brooklyn (pop. >3 million), we are busier than we can handle and would love for someone great to join us. We have a huge referral base and see tons of pathology. Indeed, we have more variety and volume of pathology than some fellowships. You will not be bored.
In addition to 3 fellowship-trained pediatric ophthalmologists (2 Costenbaders, 1 Indianapolis) we work alongside 4 stellar optometrists whom we trained in-house. We have three newly renovated offices and perform all surgery at NY Eye & Ear (14th Street, Manhattan) and a NY Eye & Ear affiliated ASC in Queens. BTW, Queens is the most interesting area in New York City (and "Best US Destination 2015," according to Lonely Planet, fwiw...). Queens is the most ethnically diverse county in the WORLD and is full of character, characters, and the best food anywhere. The bulk of our patients are from working-class families who appreciate what we do.
We prefer working with people just out of fellowship, offer a very healthy compensation package with huge growth opportunity - and partnership is on the table. This is a unique opportunity to take care of terrific patients AND have a fantastic life. Our offices are an easy commute within Queens & Brooklyn and from Manhattan, LI and Westchester.
So, if you are interested in practicing in the big time, living in/around NYC and taking great care of lots of kids who need help, then let’s talk!
AAPOS approved fellowship training is a prerequisite. Must be an AAPOS member or member-in-training. Must be an ABO diplomat or ABO eligible. Conversant or fluent in any language (in addition to English) is a plus.
Private group practice: 4 MDs and 3 ODs. Practice limited to pediatric ophthalmology and adult strabismus. 20,000+ visits/year and growing. Huge referral base of pediatricians, optometrists and ophthalmologists. We are the only pediatric ophthalmology group in Queens.
