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.
