Retina Associates, P.A. is a five (5) physician retina group actively searching for a new vitreo-retinal surgeon. A new physician will be joining a very busy practice and will have an established patient load with a high surgical volume very quickly. We offer a very competitive salary and bonus structure with a generous amount of vacation time and have a very well-defined track to partnership that previous employee physicians have found very satisfactory.
The practice was started in 1989 and has continuously expanded. The main office is located in Little Rock at the Baptist Eye Center on the campus of the Baptist Medical Center. We have five satellite clinics located around the state that we attend on a regular basis. Each physician averages traveling approximately once per week.
The clinic is supported by a wide network of referral sources from ophthalmologists and optometrists throughout the state. All offices use electronic medical records as well as digital angiography and Zeiss Cirrus OCT machines with OCT angiography capabilities. Our main office also uses an Optos California camera and wide field digital angiography. Personal scribes are used in all of our clinics.
We share call with another retina group in town that significantly reduces the number of days and weekends a year that we take retina call. The local community is well served with all other ophthalmic subspecialties. The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences offers services for electrophysiology and specialized genetic testing with an ocular genetics lab.
Surgeries are performed in operating suites conveniently located on the first floor of our main office at the Baptist Eye Center. The surgical suites are designated as retina only rooms and are equipped with state of the art Zeiss ceiling mounted operating microscopes, Alcon vitrectomy units and BIOM wide angle viewing systems. The dedicated ophthalmology operating room staff is fully trained to assist with all retina cases. We have daily blocked operating room times and excellent access to operating rooms for emergency cases.
