Ophthalmologist – Rochester, NY – Sign on Bonus and Relocation Allowance!


Veterinary Specialists & Emergency Services (VSES) has an opportunity for a full-time, board-certified/board-eligible Ophthalmologist to join our growing team. Our ophthalmology service has been a busy service for over 10 years. Our full-time ophthalmologist left the area at the end of 2017, and the service is currently supported by consultant ophthalmologists. We want to return to a full-time ophthalmology service. We have an existing patient load and referral base to support that.

We are the only 24/7/365 emergency and specialty referral veterinary hospital in the Rochester area. Our 28,000-square-foot facility is equipped with the latest in veterinary technology, including Kowa SL-17 slit lamps, binocular indirect ophthalmoscope with an assortment of condensing lenses, Reichert tonopen, Retinal Graphics ERG, Zeiss operating microscope with an assistant’s head, I-Med phacoemulsification unit and Diovet diode laser with G-probes and a laser-indirect headset. We also have a dedicated ophthalmology operating room. Our facility also hosts a complete onsite diagnostic laboratory, comprehensive surgical suites and advanced imaging capability including CT/MRI. 

As a member of the VSES family, you will work alongside our diverse and talented team including board-certified specialists in internal medicine (2), surgery (2), neurology (part-time) and dermatology (part-time). Our emergency service consists of emergency veterinarians (8), including rotating interns (8), specialized interns in medicine and surgery and surgical residents (3). To support our growing practice, a criticalist and a third internist will be joining the team in the fall of 2018. VSES is also recruiting for a cardiologist and two radiologists.

Our ideal candidate is dedicated and hard-working, with excellent communication and interpersonal skills. Our organization’s core values of teamwork, quality, compassion, honesty, trust, and education contribute to our hospital culture of collaboration and camaraderie. A loyal base of referring practitioners helps support over 1.2 million people and their pets. Rapid growth over the past several years in our specialty practices, as well as our emergency service, positions us to continue to expand our staff with highly capable individuals at all levels.
