Position title
Physician Assistant
Description

Our practice is growing, and we are seeking a provider to join our family!

The providers at our practice specialize in helping patients lose weight without surgical intervention. We treat obesity and related disorders. Many people who hear the terms obesity medicine and bariatrics automatically think of surgery, but our practice is the art and science of medical weight management. We never discourage appropriate patients from surgical intervention, but the vast majority of our patients want medical management only.  

We manage lifestyle, dietary choices, hormones, and muscle health to achieve weight management. We also review existing family, internal medicine or OB-GYN treatment plans for drugs which promote weight gain. The ongoing treatment program consists of changes in diet, physical activity levels and behavioral therapy. Treatment involves a two-step process of assessment and management. Our program involves weight-loss medications, maintenance of body weight and continuing assessment of barriers to weight loss.

 

About The Opportunity

We have an amazing opportunity for a licensed PA-C to join an expanding practice with an exceptional support team. A background in weight-loss medicine is not necessary to apply for this position, however a desire to empower people and positively impact their life is. We understand that in order to succeed in this, coordination of care is essential.

People spend a large portion of their lives at work, and that's why we have created a positive work environment that you can look forward to every day. We have taken steps to prevent burnout, and we have an excellent reputation among our present and past employees. We consistently exceed expectations as well as standard of care. 

We are looking for someone who is comfortable both with the management aspects of care as well as the motivational interviewing aspects of empowering patients. We have an established program which has been fine-tuned over the past decade. Our providers have varied experience. Some have over 20 years experience, others have under two years of experience. We strive not only to empower our patients, but also to encourage and empower the growth of our staff as well.
