Full-Time Associate OD Needed - North Vancouver, BC

Closing Date: 
Thursday, August 1, 2019 - 15:00
Job Type: 
Dumalo Optometry
156 15th St E
North Vancouver, BC V7L 2R1
British Columbia CA

Dumalo Optometry in North Vancouver is a full-scope dispensing practice offering a full-time, 4-5 day per week associate position. The opening is due to the impending departure of a current long-term associate who is relocating. The vacancy will free up a large volume of existing patients and we anticipate ample opportunity for the new associate to be fully booked upon commencement at the clinic. 

We currently employ four full-time optometric assistants, three full-time opticians and four associate OD's. The clinic has an OCT, fundus camera, visual field, pachymeter, tear osmolarity and an in-office lab. Our technicians and licensed opticians provide comprehensive pre-testing and dispensing services. We are currently open Monday-Saturday and the available clinical days are negotiable. (We close the office for all statutory long weekends.)

The doctors in the clinic have an excellent working relationship with health care providers in our neighbourhood fostered by the ongoing relationship building of our optometrists and our culture that strives to provide the best care for our patients. We receive referrals from local ophthalmologists, family physicians, pharmacists and nearby Lion’s Gate Hospital. Our longstanding existence in the community means a lot of patient loyalty, fantastic "word of mouth" reputation and visits from patients of all ages and demographics. We've been a digital office since we opened our doors in 1983 and regularly invest in new cutting edge technologies. 

Remuneration is a percentage of all exam, glasses, contact lens and therapeutics revenue. We do not offer daily minimums. 

The opportunity is available as soon as June, but we are willing to wait until later in the summer for the right candidate. We have a history of long-term associates and hope that our new associate will be a long-term fit. We look forward to welcoming you to what we believe is an exceptional opportunity.
