Glaucoma Specialist | Atlanta, GA

Busy six doctor Atlanta practice is looking for a third glaucoma specialist

www.AOAeye.com

Atlanta Ophthalmology Associates (AOA) is an outstanding practice in the heart of the North Atlanta medical community.   AOA is a highly-respected, comprehensive, multi-specialty group with two corneal/refractive specialists, two glaucoma specialists, a medical ophthalmologist and an optometrist.

The group does a large volume of cataract surgery in addition to LASIK, cornea, and glaucoma procedures.  It is a Cataract Center of Excellence utilizing the femto-second laser in more than 50% of cataract surgeries.  A large volume of toric and multifocal IOLs are chosen by its patients.

AOA is seeking a fellowship-trained glaucoma specialist who is enthusiastic about trabs and tubes as well as MIGS.  The associate will be busy right away.  After a period of employment, the associate would be offered the opportunity for partnership. Drs. Reay Brown and David Palay were professors at Emory before founding the practice 21 years ago.  Although the doctors all have a strong subspecialty focus, AOA is a full-service practice with contact lens dispensing and a busy optical with three outstanding opticians.

Because of Dr. Brown, the practice has a long history of involvement in glaucoma surgery research, especially MIGS.  A new associate would have the opportunity to participate in these projects if interested.

Atlanta is hugely underserved in glaucoma and it is difficult for referring doctors to get their patients seen in a timely manner.  An energetic person taking this position will immediately become a very important person in the ophthalmic community.

This is a wonderful opportunity for someone wanting to combine challenging glaucoma with cataract surgery as a member of the best ophthalmology practice in Atlanta.

Please contact Reay Brown, MD or Brenda Lorenzo, AOA’s practice manager, by email or phone if you are interested.

Partner-Track Glaucoma and Cataract Surgeon | Omaha, NE

Midwest Eye Care, a 10 MD, 7 OD eye care practice based in Omaha, NE, is searching for a partner-track glaucoma surgeon.  In addition to Dr. Martin Mizener, our fellowship-trained glaucoma surgeon, we also have fellowship-trained partners in retina (3), cornea (3) and neuro-ophthalmology (1).  Midwest Eye Care is the largest eye care provider in the market.   

We are adding this position to help care for our increasing population of glaucoma patients.  However, this doctor would also be actively involved in comprehensive care, including cataract surgery.  While surgery is primarily performed at our own surgery center, we do perform cases at a local hospital for patients with significant co-morbidities.  Several of our surgeons also travel to smaller communities surrounding Omaha for subspecialty clinics or for cataract/general ophthalmology clinics.

On-call coverage is organized on a practice-wide basis.  Anterior segment doctors rotate weekday, weekend and holiday call, so each anterior segment doctor typically covers 3 weeknights per month, 8-9 weekends per year including 1 holiday weekend.  In addition, surgeons may have the option of taking part in a paid city-wide on-call rotation to cover a group of local hospitals. 

Midwest Eye Care has 9 shareholders and 8 employed doctors.  MD associates are typically offered the option to become a shareholder in both the medical practice and ASC after 12-18 months.  The key requirements to become a shareholder include full-time work status, active in surgery and taking call coverage, ABO board certification, and a good fit in the practice. 

Associates will receive a base salary with bonus incentives during the first 12-18 months of employment, with shareholder status often following that period.  Benefits include paid vacation, health insurance and recurring days off each month.  The Omaha metro area provides a low cost of living, a wide range of urban and suburban housing areas, excellent public and private school systems, and an outstanding environment in which to raise a family.   As shareholders, MEC doctors typically out-earn peers in other areas of the country. 

If you have an interest in this opportunity, please e-mail Dr. Mizener at mmizener@midwesteyecare.com.  Please include introductory information as well as your CV.
