Our Central Iowa retina staff includes 4 retina surgeons and 2 retina fellows. We have a position open due to the departure of one of our retina specialists. The new associate can expect to see full clinics and perform 8,000+ intravitreal injections and 250+ surgical cases each year. Our clinics utilize state-of-the-art ophthalmic imaging equipment and are staffed by experienced retinal imaging technicians. Surgeries are performed in our new 6 room, dedicated eye ASC equipped with Alcon and B&L vitrectors with standard and Ngenuity visualization systems. Our ASC has capabilities to perform urgent cases every day of the week. Retina call is shared equally. Referral relationships are well established with our organization and the successful candidate will be provided opportunities and assistance to continue to build & strengthen these relationships.
Our Clinic is a vertically integrated eye care practice that has been in operation for over 100 years. Our retina practice has been highly active in clinical trials and has an established retina fellowship program. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to actively participate in both of these programs. This is a partnership track position. Our average physician compensation is typically in the top 10% nationally. Recently, our group of partners elected to not pursue private equity ownership. The practice has equal ownership across the physician staff and is managed on a democratic basis with one vote per physician. These arrangements have created an environment that all Wolfe Eye Clinic physicians have found very appealing and equitable. For the successful candidate, this opportunity will prove to be both financially and professionally rewarding.
