The retirement of a physician and increasing patient volume require the addition of a GI physician able to see a steady stream of outpatients in a week and perform a large volume of procedure on a yearly basis.

The remaining partner shares weekday and weekend call with another private group on campus, 1 in 5 weekday/weekend. He is able to provide a partnership track, go solo and share overhead of office space/staff, including the practice's Nurse Practitioner, or employ a new physician directly. ERCP training is preferred, but not required.

Huge demand in the community has resulted in a 6-month wait for screening colonoscopies at both independent practices in town. An incoming physician will have a full, vibrant practice immediately.
