Take My Practice ... Please

I plan to retire from my medical practice. I have the option of closing the practice outright, but I would rather leave the practice to a excited, new clinician who would be interested in owning their own practice.

Basically, I would do a few months of one-on-one training to fill their knowledge gaps, then take them on as a partner, and then retire with leaving them the practice without any charge/buyout. (I honestly wish I had had an opportunity like this when I first opened my practice and took out massive loans and spent 2 years building up a patient base.) Please contact me if you are or you know any passionate, energetic, new obesity-medicine clinicians who want to own their own practice in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Application Instructions - email your CV/resume to: careers@marlowesweightloss.com
