We have a great job offer for a veterinarian who wants to work in a private practice where a sense of humor and intellectual curiosity are valued assets; where the workplace atmosphere is congenial and cooperative; where kindness, patience, and respect are the principles that guide interactions with patients, clients, and coworkers; where decisions about patient care and diagnostics are made by the attending doctor, not dictated by a template designed by a corporate owner most interested in repeatability and profit; and likewise, where business management decisions are made by people working every day as part of the team. We like our employees to strike balance in their lives and we're ok with flexible schedules and diversity. Our senior staff loves to mentor and teach and encourages creativity and innovation from everyone. For an experienced doctor, pay employs a ProSal model with a generous guaranteed base (for a new graduate, no worries: we offer a simple straight salary without the pressure of ProSal), and there's buy-in potential for someone interested in ownership. (Oh yes, we have all the usual modern equipment, and to accommodate our booming business, we're moving into a brand new stand-alone building in late November). Come and meet us, see what you think- we'll put you up overnight and buy you dinner.
