Our practice is located less than a half hour from Manhattan to the east and a half hour from rural, country-like living to the west or north. Literally, there is something for everyone!
We are a thriving smaller group practice with 3 full time ophthalmologists and a part time optometrist located on the border of Bergen and Passaic counties in northern New Jersey. We have great office space which is warm, inviting and recently expanded. We are very well equipped, our staff is highly trained and our techs do in-depth workups. Our goal is to have a scribe at the doctor’s side at least 90-95% of the time or more, utilizing the EyeMD EMR system we have been using for over 5 years, to help the doctor see patients more efficiently and keep the time spent with the patient much higher in "quality".
We are located in an inner city setting with a significant minority patient population. This comes along with a large glaucoma population and a definite benefit to knowledge of Spanish.
This is an established, busy and technologically advanced practice with an extensive PCP referral base from the surrounding geographic area. About half of our 330+ monthly new patients are referred internally from our established patients due to the systems we have in place and training we undergo quarterly to treat our patients as VIP's. The successful candidate would be ready to be busy, plan on a long-term commitment and be motivated to reach their personal potential.
The office has HVF, Matrix, OCT, Kowa Fundus camera, Optomap, Diopsys ERG/VEP, Epic refraction station, slit lamp cameras in 6 exam rooms (soon to be added to the remaining 4 rooms), specular microscope, corneal topographer, immersion A-scan, Ellex Yag, SLT and Argon lasers. We have an in-office optical shop and an optometrist on-staff for contact lens work in addition to routine exams.
Surgeries are mainly done in a nearby 3 OR, eye-only ASC which has a Femto laser, ORA, Zeiss Lumera scopes and Alcon Infinity phaco units. In addition, the local hospital SDS unit can be used.
The position is full time and available in December 2018. A glaucoma trained specialist willing to spend about 50% of the time doing comprehensive work or a full time comprehensive ophthalmologist would be a great fit for this position.
The position has a generous salary, a great incentive bonus and benefit package. We will help train and guide you to reach your potential and be groomed for success.
