Thank you for your interest in North Coast Ophthalmology Medical Associates. Located on the coast of the beautiful Pacific Ocean in Northern California, we have been practicing general ophthalmology for 45 years and have the largest volume of patients in the area, as well as in the surrounding counties. We are seeking a physician with strong surgical skills to join our busy practice with a partnership possibility.
We are a three-physician practice with two office locations and our own surgery center. Due to our community’s aging demographic and having only one cataract surgeon, we have a surplus of cataract patients, making North Coast Ophthalmology ideal for an anterior segment surgeon looking for a busy surgical practice. In addition to our progressive and busy offices, the Humboldt Physicians Surgery and Laser Center, a CMS certified ambulatory surgery center, is within walking distance of the Eureka clinic, where you can perform all your local and monitored anesthesia care ophthalmic procedures.
The Redwood Coast is home to education, arts,and nature. Humboldt State University and its performing arts platform, Center Arts, brings music, dance and theater from around the world to our doorstep. Hiking or cycling among redwoods, ocean and river kayaking, and fishing or surfing are just a few of the outdoor activities readily available year round. No need to pack a bag unless you’re camping or backpacking! Our climate is mild, the air is clean, and there’s never any traffic on your way to the office.
Pride in our community runs deep. Family businesses like fishing and farming are passed from one generation to the next. Buying local products like fresh crab and oysters from the docks or produce, grass-fed meats and honey from the farmers’ markets support the local economy. Living among the Redwoods doesn’t mean you won’t want to get away from time to time. A scenic drive or a flight from our regional airport will connect you to wherever you need to go.
The Coronavirus Pandemic has changed the way we all live and practice medicine. Humboldt County has had a very limited number of confirmed cases, few hospitalizations and no deaths thus far. Local hospital, public health, and law enforcement agencies have provided science-driven leadership and clear communication. Our rural setting has provided plenty of safe and socially-distant outdoor venues to exercise and enjoy nature while adhering to the shelter-in-place orders.
Whether you’re looking to start your career or restart your life in a place where you can find professional fulfillment and live your best life away from work, you may have found your new home. We invite you to continue this conversation with us and explore the next steps together.
