Optometrist - Full Time - Federally Qualified Health Center - Sonoma, CA

*Licensed new grads and experienced doctors are encouraged to apply!

Sonoma Valley Community Health Center (SVCHC) is a non-profit, federally qualified health center. Opening in 1992 as a free-standing primary health care clinic, it began as a grassroots effort to address the lack of access and disparities in health care for the uninsured and underserved in Sonoma Valley. Since its inception, we have grown in capacity to serve Medi-Cal, insured, underinsured, private insurance, and private pay patients and provide sliding scale fees for those in need. In addition to medical services, we offer behavioral health, an in-house phlebotomy service, a dental clinic, an optometry clinic, pharmacy services, and certified bilingual enrollment professionals to help determine eligibility and enrollment options.

We are looking for an enthusiastic Optometrist to become part of the SVCHC team. Our ideal candidate will be time-efficient, patient-centered, and familiar with EHR!
