Too many physicians end up with poor contracts and when the job doesn’t work out, they end up saddled with heavy costs, burdensome non-compete agreements, and unfair treatment. Spending a few hundred bucks up front to get the contract reviewed is well worth it. Firms listed here are paid advertisers on the site, but have all been vetted by me and your fellow readers.
