Optum is part of a nationwide network of dedicated providers and care teams working together to help people live their healthiest lives. Optum Medical Care is a part of a regional team of over 2,100 providers serving more than 1.6 million patients in the tri-state region.
We are currently seeking a BC/BE glaucoma or cornea trained ophthalmologist to join our busy practice in Kingston and Rhinebeck, NY. We would also consider a comprehensive ophthalmologist with broad practice interests, including medical glaucoma, diabetic disease, and cataract surgery. Both offices are currently staffed by two comprehensive ophthalmologists and one medical retina specialist. We share group call coverage with our offices in Poughkeepsie, making for a 7 MD call rotation. A recently retired ophthalmologist with 30 years of practice in the community has left a large need for continuing care. The other three physicians on staff have a combined 40 years' experience in the community.
Our department is supported by a team of clinical & non-clinical staff, including COA's and COT's. We have a strong referral relationship with our community optometrists and also work closely with our in-house regional subspecialty partners in Cornea, Glaucoma, Oculoplastics, Neuro-Ophthalmology and Retina. We have 8 exam lanes, the most up-to-date OCT technology, and imaging/angiography systems in each of our offices, as well as the latest IOL Master for our cataract surgery patients. We utilize our community hospital as well as a regional outpatient eye surgery center for surgical procedures. The surgery center offers Femto cataract surgery and ORA technology. We have the advantage of a shared EMR with our colleagues in Optum, on-site labs and imaging services for our patients, and coordinated care with primary care providers and other medical and surgical specialties in the group.
The Hudson Valley Region of New York is home to a number of historical, diverse, and culturally rich communities.
