As a small office, each staff member plays a vital role in the success of the practice. This position is built for a mature, dynamic, people-oriented medical professional committed to ensuring all patients receive a positive full cycle experience.

The role requires a versatile individual capable of multi-tasking in patient care/counseling and office administrative functions. A large portion of our patient population is seeking symptom relief via medical marijuana OR recovering from opioid addiction.

Ideal candidates will also have the experience and maturity level to handle a modest list of administrative or office-related tasks at an "office manager" level of responsibility. Note: we are a cash pay office, no insurance taken.

We strive to outperform other medical offices and depend heavily on our staff to be difference-makers. This position is more than a paycheck … it’s a career in helping patients and influencing the success of a team-oriented culture. We expect a lot but always reward success. Our practice enjoys a well-earned 4.9 out of 5 Star Rating on Google.
