Physicians' Thoughts on Their CompHealth Recruiters

April 19th, 2017 6 Min read Blog

We work hard to build great relationships with our providers and find them the perfect job for their situation. Here is what a few of them have to say about their experience working with us and how their recruiters have made their experiences better.

"My recruiter is there for me whenever I need him." -- Dr. Mandaar Gokhale

Dr. Mandaar Gokhale is an emergency medicine physician. Dr. Gokhale has this to say about his recruiter:

"My recruiter is there for me whenever I need him. He has the answers to all the questions that I may have. I think the characteristics of a very good recruiter are somebody who really listens to you and has a feel for what you want and what you need."

"When I was finishing up my residency in 1997 one of the first calls I made was to CompHealth. I had heard about it, I think, through a mailer. They still did those then. I was looking to get some jobs out on the west coast or in mountain west. I’ve been with CompHealth ever since."

"My recruiter Patsy Hoard has been a delight to work with." -- Dr. Noel Lumpkin

Dr. Noel Lumpkin is an anesthesiologist from Washington. She is also the author of book The Road Warrior Physician.

"I have found that working with CompHealth has been a great experience. From the get-go I was told who would be working with me on my file, not just my recruiter and not just the person who handled the travel details but the person who worked on the license, the credentialing and so forth and that was a first for me. I’d never actually had the names much less the contact information for the people who would be working on me aside from the recruiter. I have found the experience to be consistently optimal. I have never had a question about who was taking care of things or if I had a problem that there wasn't somebody I could call."

"My recruiter Patsy Hoard has been a delight to work with. She listens to what I have to say and while that should be an obvious requirement for any recruiter it can be surprisingly lacking in others. She is always looking for new opportunities for me but also gives me feedback from the jobs I’ve been working with."

"My recruiter at CompHealth is Jesika and Jesika is awesome." -- Dr. Tammy Allen

Dr. Tammy Allen is a hospitalist. When not working she volunteers and travels the world.

"I work with CompHealth because I think they’re a first rate company. Good customer service, very reliable and just a very good company to work for—work with.

"I never dreamed that I could do medicine and live this life. I truly, I have an awesome job. I go to work everyday, I get to save people, I get to help them and then I can go home and my husband and I can go travel the world. It doesn’t get much better than that."

"My recruiter really works hard to find me an assignment that fits me." -- Dr. Wendy Ballenger

Dr. Wendy Ballenger is a pediatrician, internist and an osteopath.

"I chose to work with CompHealth because my friend from med school had recommended them but I chose to stay with CompHealth because of the experiences that I’ve had at the different jobs. They’ve been great. My recruiter really works hard to find me an assignment that fits me and I’ve loved them all."

"One of the most important ways to me that my recruiter helps is she knows I’m an osteopath who likes to do manipulation. She knows I’m internal medicine and pediatric and she knows I want to be able to spend time with patients so she really works hard to find me jobs that meet those criteria.
