Advanced Care Optometrist (OD required)

Colchester Eye Care - Hartford, CT

Full-time | Part-timeEstimated: $77,000 - $110,000 a year

Unique Private Practice Opportunity in a caring family environment

Are you a talented optometrist who wants to practice a high level of primary care in a family practice setting in a warm, wonderful practice? Here is your perfect opportunity!

We are looking for an associate O.D. to add to our growing eye care practices. This position could be 3, 4 or 5 weekdays depending on your needs. We are searching for a talented, personable, caring, ethical doctor to join our fabulous team in Colchester and Hebron CT. This position is perfect for a doctor who wants to foster patient relationships and a sub-specialty as well.

We have four optometrists in two offices who all work very well together to deliver the best care possible to our patients. We are medically oriented, and work closely with local medical providers and emergency facilities. We co-manage surgery, from refractive cases to complex cataract and combined procedures. Our professional staff is super friendly, caring and well-trained and work with each other and our doctors as friends as well as co-workers. Many of our patients have been with the practice for many years and come expecting to have a good experience, which makes for a great collection of patients to work with! Our goal is not to churn patients, but to give the best care possible, and our patients appreciate it. We love technology and continually invest to stay up to date. Our longer exam times give our doctors time to foster the relationships that keep bringing patients back to our offices. We are really proud of the care that we are able to provide our community and are looking for a doctor that wants to do this with us.

Below is a note from a current associate, Dr. Sadanowicz:

"Having worked in hospital, corporate, and private practice settings, Colchester Eye Care stands out to me because it truly is a family practice. The patients we see here are patients from the community around us, who keep coming back year after year, and so, as a practitioner, you develop a relationship with your patients beyond just the eye exam. Exams are not rushed and so you have the time and in fact are encouraged to get to know the people in your chair, which I love. When I was just starting optometry school and thinking about how my life would be after graduation, this is the type of practice I had imagined I would be in; we practice the best kind of optometry here. Another great thing about CEC is the staff- everyone works together for the same goal; to make the patients happy and get through the day with smiles on our faces. People are friendly, happy, and care about doing their jobs right.

Here also I have room to explore my interests professionally. I see patients in a wide range of ages, socioeconomic backgrounds, etc., and, therefore, see a very wide range of conditions. I'm encouraged to develop my specialty and interests and so never feel complacent or bored. Our equipment is current and so I am able to practice to the highest level of care and also co-manage a variety of retina, cataract, glaucoma, and refractive surgery cases. Coming out of my residency, I worried that I may not be using all the training I had received. However, here I truly do."
