“My wife and I were both fortunate to join Summit Medical Group as outpatient Internal Medicine physicians.  I was happy to join directly from residency and my wife joined the Summit team shortly thereafter.  Both she and I rotated with physicians in the group during our residency who encouraged us to consider SMG when choosing our careers.  I’m happy that we did.  I feel that we have joined a group of individuals who care deeply for their patients, colleagues, and the practice of medicine.

 

From an organizational standpoint, finding a successful physician owned group with a partnership track is becoming more difficult in the age of the employee physician. Being such a large and successful group offers a great deal of stability and bargaining power while still allowing individual physician autonomy in day to day clinic operations. This translates into both a higher income potential as well as an overall better job satisfaction for physicians.

 

The support available from the corporate side of the group has been outstanding. Everyone from our CEO to our reception staff is there to help the individual physician to be successful. Keeping up with the changing landscape in healthcare has been much more manageable because of the expertise and education provided."
