Our team is creating access to world-class dermatology care in underserved markets and is committed to treating every patient as we would want our friends and family to be treated. We are growing rapidly and looking for key team members who believe in our mission and want to make a difference in the lives of our patients. We foster a collaborative environment that is fun and hardworking and promise you will work alongside amazing colleagues you are proud to call your teammates.

Optima Dermatology has quickly grown to 19 locations and 52 providers in Indiana, Ohio, New Hampshire, and Maine. Optima offers a complete menu of services under one roof, including general dermatology, Mohs surgery, cosmetics & aesthetic services, pathology, and clinical trials. Unlike most dermatology practices, Optima’s strategy is based on a de novo approach, opening net new practices within markets that have limited access to dermatological services.

Optima has launched an ambitious growth plan, focused on opening between 5-8 new de-novo practices per year over the next decade in Ohio, Indiana, New Hampshire and Maine due to the attractive supply / demand characteristics in these states.

Optima achieves industry-leading quality of care and patient experience (95+ average NPS), and our mature practices achieve 80%+ returning patients, stable top-line organic growth, and industry-leading clinic-level EBITDA margins.
