Extremely busy, well-established pediatric ophthalmology/adult strabismus group seeks 5th MD. In addition to our 4 fellowship-trained pediatric ophthalmologists we have 3 optometrists trained in-house who assist us. We see many zebras – more than some training programs – and have a healthy surgical volume. You will not be bored. We have three newly renovated offices in Queens and perform all surgery at NY Eye & Ear (14th Street) and a NY Eye & Ear affiliated ASC in Queens. Queens is the most interesting area in New York City! (and "Best US Destination 2015," according to Lonely Planet) It is the most ethnically diverse county in the WORLD and full of character (and characters). The bulk of our patients are from working-class families who appreciate what we do. We are the only specialty group serving a huge population (2.4M) and are busier than we can handle. Current fellows very much encouraged to apply. Compensation package is generous. This is a unique opportunity to grow, work with great patients AND make a great living. Our offices are an easy commute from Manhattan, LI and Westchester as well as NYC proper.
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.
Additional Salary Information: Commensurate with experience.
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.
