In 2000, after 25 years of private practice, I decided to start a group orthopedic practice. I bought some land, built some office buildings, and started recruiting. Initially, I recruited via ads in trade journals and on orthopedic web sites. That was a painfully slow process. Interested inquiries were few and far between. I had to interview ten to fifteen candidates before finding someone who might be a keeper. Then in 2008, I found St. John Associates and began using them as my exclusive recruiter. That was the end of my recruiting woes. As soon as I let the recruiters at St. John know I am looking for a new member of my group and let them know what fellowship training I am looking for, the CVs start arriving. The candidates they present for consideration are well trained, personable and are interested in living in my area of the country. Over the past ten years I have found three of the current seven orthopedic surgeons in the group through St. John Associates. I am currently working on recruiting a spine fellow, a total joint fellow, and a foot and ankle fellow, all referred to me by St. John.
St. John Associates are truly interested in the welfare and success of their clients. They are well organized, thorough in their research, efficient and focused on the objective. I recommend them without reservation to anyone looking to fill a vacancy or add to their numbers.
