I had an outstanding experience with St. John Associates and especially Dan Piekarsky. Dan was very interested in developing a comprehensive profile of my career plans, goals and outside interests. SJA was informative and helpful, and consistently offered detailed objective responses to all of my questions. I highly recommend St. John Associates to anyone searching for their dream career opportunity!
— Leslee Hudgins, D.O.

St. John Associates was extremely helpful in our agency search for three psychiatrists. I was very impressed with the quality of applicants SJA referred and how quickly we were able to set up interviews. We ended up successfully filling all three of our openings with psychiatrists recruited by St. John Associates. Their assistance was instrumental in successfully completing the contracting process in a timely manner.
— Kathy Hayes with Winter Haven Hospital in Winter Haven, FL

I was hesitant to see whether attractive opportunities existed elsewhere. Too often placement specialists say where you should want to work rather than listen to what you need. St John Associates takes a different approach. They made the process so streamlined that uprooting my life after 5 years of practice was exciting and easier than I thought it could ever be.
— Jason Batley, M.D.

Most recruiting firms took a similar approach to representing practice opportunities—that of a used car salesman. My experience with Kathy Avers was vastly different. She took an interest in what I really wanted in a practice and only presented those that fit. I appreciated her professional and personal approach. She was as an excellent consultant during the process. I will certainly recommend St. John to my colleagues.
— Richard Ammar, M.D.

I have been very impressed with the attention to detail, fast response to queries about recruitment, and most of all, the number of quality candidates presented to me in a very speedy time frame. St. John Associates has really delivered the goods on our recruitments.

Working with Katie Weismiller was by far the best experience I have ever had with a recruiter. She was professional, courteous, and stayed in close contact regarding the status of my job opportunities and interviews. St. John Associates went above and beyond any recruiters I have worked with in the past. I highly recommend them to anyone interested in finding the right job that matches their individual needs.
— -Ronald D. Karnaugh, MD with New Jersey Neuroscience Institute

I had a great experience with St John Associates, specially with Katie. She took the time to talk to me and understand my interests and goals and found me a perfect match! Other placement firms were pushy with their own interests in mind, I did not feel rushed or pushed at all. If I had to do it all over again I would call Katie in a heartbeat.
— Dr. Lopez

St. John Associates consistently provides quality candidates, carefully screened and matches them to the needs of our diverse, multi-generational orthopedic practice. I have had the privilege of working for several years with Samson May, Katie Weismiller, Jay Rensink and Caryl Bowers. The recruiters at St. John Associates are professional and responsive and I thoroughly enjoy working with them.
— Desert Orthopedic Center

I am in several in-house physician recruiter networking groups and I often see requests from other members looking for a cardiology recruitment specialist. I always refer them to Kathy Avers of St. John Associates, who I refer to as the Queen of Cardiology. Not only is Kathy a good Hoosier, she is an honest and open recruiter and it is a pleasure to work with her.
— David Clingan with The Care Group

For years we have used St. John Associates for recruiting. We've been very pleased with the quality of their services. I found Kathy Avers to be extremely professional and ethical. She has taken time to learn key elements of our cardiology group and only pre-qualified applicants are referred. My experiences with St. John Associates reflect their genuine commitment to customer service and client satisfaction.
— Brad Hall with Buffalo Heart Group

I worked with Kathy Avers in pursuit of an interventional cardiology position. She thoroughly investigated opportunities in the geographic regions I selected and paved the way for easy visits and follow-up was superb. Kathy has been the ideal recruiter to help me find my best match!
— S. Denardo

Who would've thought the first recruiter I talked to would be the one to set me up with a job 2 years later. I came across countless recruiters who didn't care about my future. I realized that Kathy is a true professional and an exceptional human being. Kathy has tremendous insight into the field of cardiology. She's not looking for the quick sell but wants to set one up at a lifelong practice.
— Rick Markiewicz, M.D.

I couldn't have dreamed up a better job than the one Kathy Avers helped me find. Kathy's knowledge of the current medical job market was amazing. She invariably put me in touch with the right person. She was there from my first phone call to the day I mailed in my final contract. Fun, instructive and productive-she's all that and and I feel fortunate we worked together. 
— Allen Harrelson
