We are searching for a surgeon to help us meet the demands for oculoplastic surgery across our referral based practice. The position could be based in either our Des Moines or Cedar Rapids clinic locations and would grow our existing oculoplastic department. The successful candidate will have a strong desire to serve patients and referring physicians with a accomplished aptitude for medical & surgical solutions. This position would combine compassionate treatment of functional oculoplastic pathology and satisfying patient desires for cosmetic solutions.
Wolfe Eye Clinic has enjoyed steady growth for several years across a client service area that encompasses approximately two thirds of the state. There are established referral relationships that provide substantial surgical volumes to all of our 22 ophthalmic surgeons including sub-specialists in retina, glaucoma, cornea, oculoplastic, adult strabismus, and pediatric ophthalmology. Wolfe Eye clinic is a very congenial organization that as a group maintains the referral relationships, thus greatly helping the new member of the group to attain significant surgery volumes in a relatively short time period. This position is partnership track.
