Come join the team of a flourishing and well-established comprehensive ophthalmology practice! We are seeking a board-certified or board-eligible ophthalmologist to take over for our retiring senior partner. The ideal candidate places patient care first, is an excellent clinician and communicator, and is seeking to develop the practice with a long-term partnership track. While the position is primarily comprehensive ophthalmologist, there is also ample opportunity and support to cultivate a subspecialty niche.
We pride ourselves on the highest-quality patient care and our reputation in the community has reflected that over many years. Our practice is well-managed with low overhead, allowing each partner/associate to enjoy work-life balance with a 4-day work week and ample vacation. On-call duties are light – 6 weekends per year covering only the office and a minimum of 3 weeks per year covering the local hospital, with generous compensation for each week.
The practice practice has two efficiently-run modern offices featuring a beautiful, newly-renovated optical shop and state-of-the-art equipment, including Heidelberg OCT, topography, Lenstar, and Octopus visual field analyzer. All of the technicians in the practice are excellent refractionists. We operate at a highly-efficient, surgeon-owned surgery center, where ownership is also an option.
Western Massachusetts and the Pioneer Valley offers natural beauty with easy access to a wide array of outdoor activities, from skiing to cycling to rock-climbing. Local colleges (UMass-Amherst, Amherst College, Smith College, Hampshire College, and Mount Holyoke College) offer cultural events, including theater, fine arts, and live music. Within a short drive you can access other cultural treasures such as Tanglewood, Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (Mass MoCA), and Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival. Downhill and cross-country skiing is less than an hour away. We are located 90 minutes from New England beaches, less than 2 hours from Boston, and 3 hours from New York City. The local communities boast superb public schools and there are also many excellent private options. The mix of satisfying clinical practice, high compensation, and strong family-oriented community make this an unrivaled opportunity.
