Lakewood Ranch-based Florida Digestive Health Specialists isn't letting the COVID-19 pandemic disrupt its efforts to recruit gastroenterologists.
Here's how it's doing it:
1. The practice recently added seven gastroenterologists and has plans to add several more in the future.
2. To onboard the new GIs, the practice has turned to telehealth.
3. In-person recruitment is also temporarily on hold, leading the team to make first connections over the internet.
"We know that this health crisis will one day pass and when it does, there will be a surge in patient appointments," said practice President Arun Khazanchi, MD. "We're innovating for our patients now and also looking forward to a future of growth and expansion, which includes adding new providers to our many teams."
