A growing private practice is seeking a full-time neuropsychologist to provide neuropsychological testing and evaluation services to the citizens of St. George, Utah, and surrounding communities.
The neuropsychologist is an independently licensed practitioner who carries his/her own outpatient caseload based on referrals from specialists, primarily neurologists, and primary care physicians from surrounding communities. The successful candidate will join a practice that already includes three exceptional psychometrists. The position is supported by experienced clerical and clinical staff to schedule patients, verify benefits, and assist with billing and coding concerns.
