Comprehensive, team oriented bariatric medical clinic seeking caring and sensitive physician (MD or DO) to provide care for patients undergoing a medically supervised weight loss program. Responsibilities include performing history and physical examinations, interaction with the medical director, review of labs, and brief weekly visits with the patients. Additional responsibilities include pre- and postoperative care of bariatric surgery patients. Practice is fast-paced at times with plenty of opportunity to talk with patients during slower times.

The Hernried Center is truly a rewarding place to work. Patients come to us severely overweight, with numerous obesity-related ills and on many medications. Within a short time they are weaned off their medications and those who complete the entire program experience excellent success in maintaining a healthy weight for their lifetime. Under the leadership of John Hernried, M.D., the entire team of physicians, nurse practitioners, behaviorists, dietitians and exercise physiologists is singularly focused on managing the disease of obesity. Prescription weight loss medications are rarely needed and are not the focus of our center. This mission brings all of us together and makes The Hernried Center a ‘feel good’ place to work. We are a dynamic and rapidly growing practice, dedicated and friendly, intent on taking excellent care of our patients. More information on our care can be found at: www.keepitoff.com.

Care is all outpatient and is from 10:30-7:30 four days per week. Call is minimal, phone based and shared with five others.

Compensation: Competitive based on regional salary surveys. Salaried position.

Ideal Candidate: Superior interpersonal skills, professional image, patient focused care philosophy. Professional working environments. Sensitive to the needs/feelings of patients suffering from severe obesity and comorbidities.

Requirements: California License and DEA. Board certification in internal medicine or family practice. Experience preferred. ABOM certification preferred.
