FYidoctors, Canada’s fastest-growing Doctor-owned eye care provider, and winner of Canada's 50 Best Managed is a young and exciting entrepreneurial company.
What started as a small group of 30 optometrists in 2009 has grown to almost 600 optometrists in more than 260 locations from coast-to-coast.
We have an opportunity for a part-time Optometrist to join our Castlegar and Trail team. These clinics have been serving the community for over 30 years and they have a very loyal patient base.
We are looking for an Optometrist to work 3 days a week with the ability to pick up more days to cover vacation time. Working 3 days a week will ensure that there is a steady flow of patients throughout the day and you also have days off to enjoy the surrounding area.
The Opportunity :
Kootenay Optometry operates two clinics in the West Kootenay region of British Columbia and has served the communities of Castlegar, Trail and surrounding areas for over 30 years.
Not only recognized locally as leaders in the optometry field, they were also recently awarded the 2019 World Sight Day Challenge Silver award from global fundraising initiative Optometry Giving Sight for their commitment to accessible vision care.
Both practices have very knowledgeable team members and are equipped with the latest diagnostic equipment including Digital Fundus Photography.
The Castlegar location also has specialty equipment such as a ZEISS OCT and Visual Fields.
Castlegar and Trail are nestled in the beautiful West Kootenays. The Columbia River runs alongside the towns which offers beautiful views and summer activities.
White Water and Red Mountain Ski resorts are a short drive away so you can easily spend most weekends hiking or enjoying the fresh powder during the winter months.
Being located close to Nelson is also a great perk, as the town is lively all year round with boutique shops, restaurants, and craft breweries.
We started as a group of 30 Optometrists in 2008 and have grown to 500 Optometrists across Canada in just 12 years. Today, as Canada’s fastest-growing Doctor Owned eye care provider and winner of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for 2020, FYidoctors team includes respected leaders from provincial and national associations who are dedicated to the values long associated with Optometry.
