We have a very busy surgical practice in Marietta, Ohio and Parkersburg, WV. We currently have 3 comprehensive surgeons. We have been here since 1992 and have a very large volume of glaucoma patients. We are looking for a glaucoma trained ophthalmologist to join us. The position will be primarily glaucoma based, but we anticipate a significant amount of cataract surgery will also be performed. We would consider a resident that is planning to continue training with a glaucoma fellowship, a glaucoma fellow that will be done with training 2019 to 2021 or an established glaucoma specialist.
We are a very busy cataract surgery practice with many glaucoma patients. We stay very current with equipment and surgical skills. We have a LenSX femtosecond laser, a YAG laser and an SLT laser. We do a significant amount of advanced technology lens surgery (toric IOLs and multifocals) and MIGS with iSents. We own and operate our own ASC. There are no local, or even regional, glaucoma specialists. Currently our advanced glaucoma patients are sent to Columbus, Ohio approximately 120 miles from here for care. There are only a few glaucoma specialists in the entire state of WV, so we believe this will be a wonderful opportunity for glaucoma practice growth through referrals. We currently do more than 400 glaucoma laser procedures and over 4,000 glaucoma tests (visual fields and optic nerve imaging) per year, much of this volume would be made available for our new associate.
Our greatest strength is the camaraderie of our doctors. We are good friends and support each other through thick and thin. Very few practices enjoy the supportive collegial relationship that we have developed. We are excited to bring a new doctor into our practice and we are enthusiastic about mentoring our new partner to be an equal part of the team, develop world class surgical skills, and generate a world class income.
We also feel that vacation time is central to our success. The partners take 12 weeks of vacation a year. One partner uses that time to go hiking, skiing, and fishing in Wild Wonderful West Virginia. The second partner uses that time to play gigs with his rock band across the region, and the third partner travels with a backpack to South America, Southeast Asia, and Europe and sails his sailboat in our local lake and charters in the Caribbean. We work hard and play hard.
Are you having second thoughts about leaving the big city? Our youngest partner moved to the area from the Upper East Side of Manhattan and would happy to discuss the minor culture shock and MAJOR benefits of moving to the countryside. And if you need a taste of the city life, Columbus, Pittsburg and Cleveland are an easy weekend getaway. You can become a world class surgeon, raise a family in a safe and friendly community, and make enough income to realize all of your dreams here!
Marietta and Parkersburg are both small towns that are about 15 miles apart. We have rolling hills, lots of outdoor activities, and a safe friendly environment to raise a family. The travel channel ranked Marietta one of the 50 best small towns in America and the most charming small town in Ohio. We have rivers, bike trails, and many festivals.
Additional Salary Information: We have full benefits. Our retirement plan has a profit sharing plan and a cash balance plan.
Internal Number: Glaucoma Specialist
