| We are recruiting a full-time, energetic, and enthusiastic BC/BE ophthalmologist to join our busy practice of 5 ophthalmologists and 1 optometrist. A glaucoma specialist or comprehensive ophthalmologist would fit well in our practice with an immediate opportunity for building a successful medical and surgical practice. This position is for someone looking to become a partner in the practice. With our two senior partners slowing down to half-time each, a large patient base, rapidly growing population, and an already thriving practice with a stellar reputation, not only will you start out busy, the growth potential for your practice is almost unlimited. |
Our practice is congenial with a collegial atmosphere. Currently, we have a medical retina and cornea specialist, as well as 3 comprehensive ophthalmologists and 1 optometrist. Two of our partners trained at Washington University St. Louis and two trained at Bascom Palmer. All our ophthalmologists practice comprehensive ophthalmology, but each individual is able to tailor his or her patient mix. Our partners all perform cataract surgery using specialty lenses. Two of our surgeons perform laser vision correction.
Our two offices are located in beautiful Brevard and Hendersonville, NC, and provide a full range of medical and surgical services using the latest technology. Each office is fully equipped and staffed 5 days a week. Both offices have a minor OR for oculoplastic cases such as blepharoplasties. A full service optical is located in each office.
We have about 45 full-time staff - most of whom have been with the practice for 5-10+ years, many much longer. Low turnover and good staff benefits such as a 401K plan support a friendly and motivated office environment.
The Asheville / Brevard / Hendersonville area is a beautiful place to live, especially for a family. Four distinct seasons; numerous outdoor activities; access to state parks, lakes, rivers, and mountains; excellent public and private schools all make this area attractive. Low crime, little traffic, a thriving music, arts and crafts scene, festivals and innovative restaurants add to the quality of life. People travel from all over the country to visit the place that we are fortunate to call home.
The Asheville airport and an easy drive to Charlotte, NC, or Greenville, SC, make for accessible flights to any destination. Our demographics include a growing senior population (area is consistently ranked a top location for retirees) and increasing economic growth along the Interstate 26 corridor south of Asheville.
Housing options are abundant ranging from planned suburban neighborhoods to urban lofts to rural homes. An associate could live in either Brevard, Hendersonville or Asheville and enjoy an easy commute.
