What Physicians Have to Say
The most reassuring thing was when my recruiter said to me on our first conversation, “we’ll find you a job.” He remained committed to suitably placing me and guided me through the decision process.
Michele Beason has been amazing to say the least. When I started my job search, I had multiple recruiters contact me, all trying to be helpful finding me the job that best fit me. It didn’t take long to realize that all they wanted to do was just get me into ANY job. Michele was a breath of fresh air. She paid attention to what I was looking for. She has a vast knowledge of what the market has to offer and is very open with good advice.
The most notable quality I noticed about Dave Witte was that he was an advocate for me and my interests. He has done a remarkable job to help me negotiate through my job contract once he found the right job for me. He showed me a lot of positions, but then recommended to me only the right ones that matched my requirements. Unlike a lot of recruiters, he let me think carefully before I accepted a position and even encouraged me to be patient.
Corbin Baird was great in finding exactly the type of job I was looking for. He was quick to provide details and set up an interview. I would definitely recommend Corbin and the Curare Physician Recruiting to any colleague looking for a new job.
Emily Yang did a great job. She quickly realized my requirements and moved very quickly. I appreciate her efforts and will recommend her highly.
Thanks for all your encouragement. I couldn’t have done this on my own.
Great Job. You found just what I wanted and were very agreeable to work with.
Julie [Hargesheimer] was a great recruiter. She was always available to assist and answer any questions that I had. As a new grad, trying to find a job is a hard and new experience. It was nice to have someone to bounce questions and concerns off of. I recommend working with a recruiter to all providers going through this process.
The only comment I can give you is far beyond the call of duty. You are great, determined and extremely supportive. You were my guiding lighthouse. Thank you so much for all your efforts and dedication.
Julie Hargesheimer has remained in contact with me through the entire [job search] process and has provided words of wisdom and encouragement. It has been a pleasure working with Ms. Hargesheimer and I would recommend Curare Physician Recruiting without reservation.
I highly recommend Ms. Julie Hargesheimer of Curare Physician Recruiting as a recruiter. She was highly knowledgeable and professional at every step of the recruiting process. She was very prompt in responding to any of my questions and concerns.
Julie was great at communicating with me, as well as providing me with resources and feedback to help me excel in the interviewing process. A wonderful person to have on your team!
I have nothing but positive things to say about my overall experience with Jerry Ramusack. He had excellent knowledge of the markets which were appropriate for me. Jerry always has been understanding and had a good knowledge of the jobs. He has been in regular contact and kept me informed at all times. I recommend his services and have already given his number to my friends.
I cannot say enough about how positive this experience was. I believe I got great advice and good follow-through. I think Curare Physician Recruiting did an outstanding job of listening to my needs and considerations for relocating and matched it to the appropriate hospital. I will definitely recommend Curare Physician Recruiting.
Excellent Job! I really loved working with you and I am excited to join my DREAM JOB I landed because of you.
I had previously used a few different job recruiters but it wasn’t until I had the pleasure of working with Mr. [Ian] Sons when I felt someone listened to me and was addressing exactly what I was looking for in a job. Mr. Sons was very patient, hardworking, diligent and always got back to me in a timely manner. He made me feel that I was his most important client. This is the first time I can say that I felt no hesitation to be completely open and honest with a job recruiter about my real job
I was very pleased with the excellent service, communication, attention to detail, and follow-up provided by my physician recruiter Ian Sons. It was truly a pleasure working with Ian.
I’ve worked with Curare Physician Recruiting for two jobs now and both times it has been a real pleasure. They work hard on your behalf and communicate quickly and efficiently.
I found working with Cody Speer most refreshing as he has the ability to truly listen to what I was looking for in an opportunity. He found exactly the type of position where the employer and employee could be satisfied. When negotiations got complex, he went beyond my expectations and was able to state clearly, concisely, and most importantly, accurately what my needs and concerns were. I would strongly recommend Cody Speer to any employer or physician in their next search. Thank you Cody! Coul
I spoke with nearly 20 recruiters. I am sorry to say that some were frankly rude and others uninterested in me because of my location preference and some even questioned my motivation and credentials. Cody Speer treated me as though I had hired him and found two jobs to my exact specifications. He always followed up and assisted in arranging meetings and even negotiated in a manner that benefited both the client and myself. I could not have been more satisfied with my experience with Cody Speer
Julie was very helpful and responded right away to my questions and concerns. She was not pushy at all and gave me some time to dissect the contract.
Jeremiah Forster was excellent to work with! He found a great job opportunity for me, which I eventually decided to accept. The process went smoothly and efficiently. He communicated with me without being too pushy. I would highly recommend him to a colleague.
Julie Hargesheimer is very detail oriented, quickly responds, and helpful with negotiating. It was a pleasure working with her and I have already recommended her and Curare Physician Recruiting to physicians and colleagues.
Julie Hargesheimer is an outstanding recruiter, she is very direct, honest and has an excellent rapport with her clients. She truly cares about her job, she makes herself available even after-hours with her cell. It is easy to reach her and she is quick to answer all the questions from both parties.
Cody was very helpful in helping get my questions answered and setting up an interview.
Kim was very professional and friendly during my job search.
She took time to understand what I wanted and did an excellent job of timely follow up.
Kim [Gary] was extremely pleasant and positive. She was encouraging me through the process. I really appreciated her help as I had not been involved in a job search for 20 years.
I felt comfortable working with Sam Creel, he had a laid back style that worked well for me, but was still on top of things, without being bothersome or overbearing.
Jeremiah is an excellent recruiter. He listened to my needs and what I wanted and didn’t try to just fill a position. Very responsive in answering texts/emails/phone calls. Will definitely refer my peers
Jeremiah was fantastic throughout the whole process. He kept the lines of communication open and was receptive to my wishes.
Michele was wonderful to work with and was persistent in following up to make sure I was satisfied with my job and that I had found the right job. She answered all my questions and even gave some great recommendations.
Emily Yang’s close attention to details and prompt responses really facilitated getting a position!
Julie was very efficient, prompt, and went out of her way to do whatever she could to help with the process. A good middle man.
Both me and my wife agree that Tim [Crouch} has surpassed by far any other recruiter that we have dealt with in the past in his accessibility and attention to detail. We consider him an honest intermediary and thank him for his service.
Mrs Gary spent a lot of time getting me situated. Consummate professional. She went beyond the call of duty to make sure i was comfortable with my choice and helped me through the entire process. I truly appreciate her. Kim you rock!!!
I have never worked with a recruiter before, but Tim made it very easy. He was not pushy, just there, asking me what I wanted and how I wanted to proceed. I would recommend Tim to all my acquaintances. It was a wonderful experience.
Thank you Josh for all the help with finding my new employer. I Got a great opportunity thanks to Josh Thurston at Curare Physician Recruiting.
Bob Salzarulo’s work ethics of being professional, reliable and relaxed were very much appreciated.
Sam Creel was a pleasure to work with. I have worked with many recruiters in the past and found that Sam’s assistance in my job search superior. I know he is not paid by me, but I couldn’t tell it. He established an excellent balance between ensuring contacts were made and both the facility and myself were on the same page and not being too aggressive. I would recommend Sam to any colleague searching for a permanent position.
Emily Yang exhibited timely communication and high responsibility. She gave me helpful advice, excellent service and professionalism.
Sam Creel utilized text messaging for most of the minor communication which was extremely helpful for a very busy fourth year OB/GYN resident. I could send back a quick text message while awaiting a surgery to start when a phone call would not have been possible. The process proceeded much faster and more smoothly than I had expected.
Julie Hargesheimer was amazing and I felt very comfortable talking with her. I really appreciate the opportunity to work with her.
This was a wonderful experience. I forwarded David Bik’s contact info to a colleague who is interested in a change. I had complete confidence in his ability to find the best placement for me.
If you need to find a job ASAP, just call Curare Physician Recruiting, especially Emily Yang. Just tell her your necessity and she will help you!
Dave Witte was a pleasure to work with and very professional.
Tim gets my highest recommendation. I will be referring him to any of my colleagues who wish to try a recruiting service. I am very pleased with the outcome of my job search.

Overall the contract I signed exceeded my expectations both in lifestyle and compensation. I am positive that using this service through Tim allowed me access to the best possible job on the ma

Mr. Jayes Lampkins has proven to have great market knowledge, patience and went above and beyond in assisting. Curare Physician Recruiting is very fortunate to have such a competent recruiter!
Emily Yang was very knowledgeable and was able to find a good fit for me. Her help was very appreciated!
I have been extremely pleased with Mr. Creel’s performance as a recruiter. I sincerely feel he took my case to a personal level, going beyond the general responsibilities of a recruiter. Communication with Mr. Creel was very simple, through phone, emails and even text messages.
I sincerely appreciate all the advice he provided to me throughout the process, especially with the negotiation portion.
I highly recommend Mr. Sam Creel as a recruiter specialist.
Over the years I have had the opportunity to work with several recruiters and firms. Kim Gary stands out in her field as she was truly dedicated to finding the right match for me. She was reliable, informative, and an absolute pleasure to work with! I am hoping that my current opportunity takes me into my retirement years, but if not, I will definitely seek Kim’s expertise again!
I had a wonderful experience working with Mr. Jayes Lampkins. He is very knowledgeable and professional. I was also impressed by the fact that he always followed-up with any update. He was helpful throughout the whole process. I will definitely recommend him to any of my colleagues.

Her insight regarding market knowledge, compensation and her attention to detail were priceless. I would easily recommend her to my friends and colleagues!
Your approach in recruiting a physician for an available opportunity was not aggressive, but very effective and made me feel very comfortable working with you. I was able to discuss with you openly about my concerns and any issue that may have influenced my choice of a practice opportunity.
I worked with several recruiters in my job search and none of them were as attentive and caring as you. Thank you for everything.
I had multiple recruiters call me who often could not remember they had spoken with me or what my interests were. Curare Physician Recruiting was more professional, individualistic and recalled previous conversations and they were well versed in the practices they were representing. I recommend them highly.
I recommend Curare Physician Recruiting to other physicians, no need to use other recruiting services.
Your market knowledge, thoroughness and negotiating skills are clearly superior to those of any other search firm.
In fifteen years of practice, and having been approached and dealing with dozens of recruiters, you and your associates stand out as head and shoulders above the crowd. It is obvious that you build a strong relationship with your hospitals and other practice opportunities based on your honesty, integrity and ability to close the deal in a win-win manner which makes you one of a very select few of truly professional recruiters.
I had a 100% match and I am greatly satisfied with my new employer.
[Curare Physician Recruiting] deep market knowledge and contacts enabled me to land a position in my favored area one year in advance.
Your approach in recruiting a physician for an available opportunity was not aggressive, but very effective and made me feel very comfortable working with you and I was able to discuss with you openly about my concerns and any issue that may influence my choice of a practice opportunity.
Because of the Internet allowing ready access to many recruiting companies, I have interacted with many recruiters online and over the phone. Curare Physician Recruiting was very nice as opposed to others who reminded me somewhat of high pressure salesman.
Your persistence and professionalism was very much appreciated. I have started working in the Beverly Hills office and love it.
There was no pressure, no persistent phone calls-just good professional assistance.

I had an excellent experience with Curare Physician Recruiting who kept me up to date on available positions and assisted in consummating an employment agreement quite admirably. I would highly recommend Curare Physician Recruiting to anyone needing assistance.
My physician friends had cautioned me regarding the use of “headhunters” because of their perception that such professional groups were only interested in placing you somewhere (not necessarily a good match) as quickly as possible. My experiences with Curare Physician Recruiting were not in accordance with those warnings from my friends. It was a very positive working relationship. It saved me time and I felt as if she was working with me to find a good professional match.
I received many calls from recruiters that were obviously working for themselves instead of the physician! Curare Physician Recruiting’s knowledge, attention to detail, and patience resulted in a wonderful outcome for me!
We were using several recruiters but Curare Physician Recruiting was the only one who kept us informed of the progress weekly and only showed us opportunities that we were interested in – not just anything available.
Curare Physician Recruiting did not waste my time with practices that I would not want, and was very discreet.

If I am looking for another job in the future, I am sure I will use her services and expertise again.
The Best Recruiting Firm I have worked with.
[Corbin Baird] was a great help and support for me in the transition time looking for a new job. He is very professional and knows how to follow and coach his clients in order to get a positive result. Mr. Baird is very approachable and has a very nice personality. I will not hesitate in the future to recommend him to other doctors in need.

Josh[Thurston] was excellent to work with; consistent, concise, very knowledgeable, timely and also really fun to to discuss options with.
Ian Sons has been wonderful in assisting me with finding a position right after my training. Things went well and on time due to his planned coordination with my employer. I would definitely choose Curare Physician Recruiting in my job search again, as well as refer my colleagues to experience the timely and great service I received from you.

Their experience and professionalism is exemplary within the recruitment industry.
All of the recruiters have been attentive, have shown excellent follow through and were responsive to our needs and requests. Curare was very professional in handling negotiations and provided good customer service. We all like doing business with your group.
Another great experience with Curare. I appreciate the fact that you only send well screened, motivated candidates who are anticipating my phone call. Several agencies were working my pediatric need, but the Curare crew ultimately presented the two best physicians so we hired them both. Thanks again.
Occupational medicine is unique and difficult to recruit for. The Curare Group has done a great job for us over the many years we have worked with them.
I have worked with many recruiters during my 28 year career. The recent placement of an I.M. MD was handled with utmost professionalism, calls and follow-up were timely and the job was completed assertively. Thank You!

It was a pleasure to work with him and I look forward to many more opportunities to fill our needs.
Bob Salzarulo is very professional and easy to work with. I would love working with him again. He helped us retain a prime candidate for general surgery.

Emily Yang worked hard to make this placement come together. It is often difficult to match times that are convenient for both the recruit and the hiring physician. She handled the communication seamlessly. We are absolutely thrilled with our new physician.

Dave Witte is wonderful to work with, professional, kind, and very on top of details. I am the only one in recruitment in a 700 physician hospital which limits me some days if I’m with a candidate. Dave was always understanding and got us the BEST internist ever!!!
