I’ve had the privilege of working with Silver Oak over approximately the past twelve years. Silver Oak has successfully recruited for me a Director of Surgical Services, Director of Critical Care, Director of Emergency Services and a Physician Practice Administrator. The skills which I believe set Silver Oak apart are 1) A very comprehensive assessment of the candidate both in interest and skills, 2) Extremely comprehensive references including the scope of the responsibilities the employee had, independence, reasons for leaving the organization, strengths and weaknesses, 3) Willingness to expand the references, at the request of the client, to whatever degree necessary, and 4) Skilled preparation of the candidate before the interview and preparation of the candidate to assure willingness to accept the job if offered. I continue to work with Silver Oak and have found the candidates presented to be extremely capable and stable. The candidates have remained with the organization for many years.
