Metro-Atlanta, GA

PEDIATRIC Ophthalmologist 

Thomas Eye Group

Thomas Eye Group is a physician-owned and -professionally managed specialty medical practice with 15 locations in the Metro-Atlanta area. As part of the natural, planned growth of our practice, we are seeking new pediatric ophthalmology physicians to care for the ever- growing population of Atlanta and the surrounding counties.

Thomas Eye Group has been providing pediatric eye care for nearly 50 years in the Greater Atlanta area. In fact, one of the two founders of the group was a pediatric ophthalmologist. Our current pediatric team includes 3 Pediatric Ophthalmologists, 2 Pediatric Optometrists and 3 of only a handful of Orthoptists in the entire country. TEG has a very close, ongoing relationship with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, one of the largest pediatric hospital networks in the country. In addition, we maintain close working relationships with the community pediatrics and pediatric sub specialists throughout the Atlanta metropolitan area.

In addition to our strong pediatric team, TEG has all sub-specialties represented and an established referral base. Additionally, TEG uses Modernizing Medicine as its electronic medical records system, with portals for patients and referring providers, and record- sharing partnerships with other practices in the region. We also understand that, as a physician, you’d much rather focus on patient care than the day-to-day details of running a business. We are proud to say that our administrative staff does an excellent job supporting the physicians, from our financial department to our dedicated HR, IT and marketing personnel. All of this makes us an ideal practice for physicians who want to offer their patients an optimal, convenient healthcare experience.

TEG offers a very generous incentive package. Not only would you receive an excellent salary and bonus opportunities, but as a physician-owned practice, the opportunity to become a shareholder exists within the organization. We also offer 401(k) matching and profit sharing, potential commercial real estate, and ASC co-ownership.

The Atlanta region, we are proud to say, is a wonderful part of the country. For those who love nature, Atlanta is located near the Appalachian Trail, Great Smoky Mountains and just a few hours from the beach. For sports fans, we are home to the MLB Atlanta Braves, the NFL Falcons, the NBA Hawks, MLS United FC, and several minor league sports teams. Atlanta also has a variety of cultural venues, from museums to theaters. There is also a multitude of casual social venues where your doctors can spend time with their friends and families. Your spouses won’t have difficulty finding work, either, since the Atlanta region houses the headquarters for Fortune 500 companies such as Home Depot, UPS, and Coca Cola. No matter what you may be interested in, Atlanta has something for you.

We would love to talk to you about a career at Thomas Eye Group. Please send your CV and brief cover letter to If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
