Visa Physician Testimonials

The best part of our job is building relationships with our clients. Celebrating their happiness and success is our biggest motivation.

It was a great pleasure working with Ms. Wendy Roofe. She helped me secure my J1 waiver position and did an excellent job helping prepare me for the interview and also helped facilitate my post interview discussions. I will certainly recommend her services not only for candidates but employers looking to hire qualified candidates as well. Thanks so much Wendy for all the help.

I spoke to many recruiters while looking for a pulmonary/critical care position just out of fellowship. I really liked Wendy from the start. She was direct, kind, clear, enthusiastic and professional. She followed up frequently and provided valuable insight and tips into the interview process. I am very happy and grateful to have worked with her.
