“I stumbled upon Medestar fresh out of training and furloughed in my job on account of credentialing. Panic stricken and with bills due, I was put in touch with an incredible service and recruiter, Jason. Within two weeks I was in my locums position and moved in to my temporary apartment. Credentialing process was a breeze, he even printed me off a copy of my very first paycheck as an attending! My family and I are eternally grateful.”

“I have been working with Medestar for nearly five years. The staff all the way from the corporate offices to my special recruiter, Amy, have been faithful, diligent and hard working to fulfill my needs every month. I am unable to say, adequately, how interested they have been to care for my needs and fulfilling my wishes. Seems that Amy is available whenever the opportunity knocks or an assignment has a problem.”
