Cardiothoracic PA Testimonials

I am writing this letter of great appreciation for Odell Companies. I have been working with their healthcare recruiter for approximately the last 2 months. She has been an incredible healthcare recruiter for both the Hospital and for me as a Physician Assistant. She has handled all matters in the timeliest fashion. She has been absolutely phenomenal, and I am not afraid to use this word to describe the quality of her work, to follow through, and make all the necessary arrangements to move my credentialing process with the hospital as fast as possible. It has been a great pleasure to work with someone like Odell Companies.

Just wanted to say it was a wonderful experience working with you. Thank you very much for your kind words of reassurance at times when I saw nothing but problems. It is clear to me that without your support I would not be able to achieve these results - both salary- and time-wise. I really appreciate you being by my side through the whole process and not just in the beginning!

I never talk to head hunters, but that day arrived when it was time to make a move and Odell Medical Search had left me a number. I called. Good move. My healthcare recruiter wasn’t the first person I spoke to but they were the one that got the job done. Professional and good natured, she mothered me through the process and settled me into a work setting that finds me excited about work again. I recommend her services without reservation.

Thanks again,
