The total comp package includes a competitive pay, $65k - $85k (based on results of past performance), and a comprehensive benefit package. This is a salaried, management position. It is said that the practice is “very generous” with their services for the staff.

The Lead Medical Assistant (LMA) works as part of a health care team including physicians, NPs, PAs, and RNs, and works directly with the chief physician (owner) of the practice. 

You're more than likely highly capable of managing and performing the MA portion of the job, the question is, do you want to work at this practice? 

This is a fast-paced environment, with an owner who spent decades creating a flawless reputation for delivering exceptional services and patient care to high-profile clients.
  • The patients are as selective of their provider as the provider (the practice) is as selective of their patients.
  • The clients expect TLC
  • The MAs are at the top of their game and require a Lead that is decisive and clear in setting expectations
  • The head of the practice (owner) expects projects and tasks to get done. They want a Lead who is articulate and experienced to know how to prevent issues from happening before they become problems, and someone who is solutions driven. Equally important is being kind and respectful of everyone in the practice, regardless of title or role to create a positive, supportive, and productive workplace.
  • Agility and flexibility are key as you may need to cover for people when they’re out, and step aside knowing the team of MAs are experienced and capable

Work Hours are Monday – Friday 9am to 6pm, and on the rare occasion 7pm. Last patient seen at 4:45pm.
