Imagine practicing in a premier multi-specialty ophthalmology group with a population service area of 650,000 that offers a work-life balance in a progressive, family-oriented university community boasting the advantages of a smaller town with the dining, arts, sports, and entertainment options of a much larger city. Does this sound too good to be true? Please take a moment to consider our quest for TWO personable, energetic, BC/BE ophthalmologists with high clinical/surgical competence, exemplary ethical standards, and excellent patient rapport.
Eye Care Specialists, LLC is a state-of-the-art practice that initiated multi-specialty ophthalmology in Southeast Missouri. Our progressive, well-respected group consists of four general ophthalmologists, a corneal/refractive surgeon, three retinal surgeons, an oculoplastic surgeon, and a low vision optometrist. We provide services at nine locations in Southeast Missouri, Southern Illinois, and Western Kentucky. We own four offices with a total of 50 exam lanes and lease space in five additional office locations. Our continued growth facilitates our mission to provide the highest quality of specialized and comprehensive eye care to patients in a caring, personalized, and service-oriented environment across the tri-state area. The future retirement of a Missouri ophthalmologist (36 years of service to the community) and the sudden death of an ophthalmologist in Illinois create an immediate and long-term need for added services in these locations. Join our collegial, supportive workgroup and you’ll step right into a developed, comprehensive practice with 300-350+ possible cataract cases your first year and unlimited future earning potential. Our surgeons perform 4000+ cataract surgeries per year. We support a referral base of 350+ entities and recognize 150+ optometrists/ophthalmologists as primary partners in the care of mutual patients.
The community is filled with attractive, affordable housing and exceptional public and private schools recognized for excellence. There is an abundance of recreational and cultural activities including a thriving performance arts center and the number one ranked golf course in MO. The region is conducive to quality family life and the resources of St. Louis can be accessed in a 90-minute drive. A local airport (4.2 miles from the main MO office) features inexpensive jet service to Chicago making our central location ideal for connections to both coasts.
The practice offers:
A superior compensation package with a base salary, sign-on bonus, and productivity-based compensation model commensurate to that of the partners
Health, life, and long-term disability insurance and cafeteria plan for dental insurance et.al.
401K plan with employer contribution
