I have worked with St. John Associates for the past 8 years in the placement of orthopaedic surgeons and physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians. This firm has represented themselves in a highly professional manner and has been very diligent to assist our practice sites with placement of well-qualified candidates in a timely fashion. I would highly recommend any practice that is seeking placement of candidates to work with St. John Associates, without reservation. Going forward we plan to continue our relationship long into the future.
Thank you for all your help, this is a great fit for me professionally and for my family!
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 CV’s 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.
Working with Caryl Bowers was a fantastic experience! She was careful to listen to my expectations for the job search and found me several great opportunities that matched my requirements. She does a great job of being helpful without being pushy or overbearing, and was always readily available to assist and answer questions. I could not have asked for a better, or smoother process, from start to finish.
I had the pleasure of working with Samson May while I was trying to find an orthopaedic job out of residency. I had contacted Mr. May directly about a few jobs in the area I was from, he was incredibly helpful, courteous and prompt in facilitating communication with other groups as well as getting any question I had answered. I did make the mistake of including my number on a recruiting website and then became inundated with incessant calls, emails and texts about jobs I had zero interest in from other recruiters. This made me appreciate the hard work Mr. May was putting in instead of just taking the traditional shotgun approach like most recruiters do these days. I would recommend him to any of my friends or anyone trying to find a new position in general.
I wanted to reach out to you and extend my gratitude for all of your help and support. It has been an absolute pleasure working with you. You know better than anyone this is a small medical community and I am sure our paths will cross again.
Caryl, I would not have been here without your help and guidance. I will definitely stay in touch. Truly can’t thank you enough.
Samson May and Caryl Bowers have been very attentive to our needs and our wants. They have helped orchestrate delivery of some of the best candidates in the market.
