The practice of medicine & surgery is becoming more challenging with each passing year. In addition, private practice physicians are encountering complex competitive hurdles among their hospital-employed colleagues. As a physician involved in private practices of trauma surgery, general surgery and surgical critcal with trauma administrative duties, balance of time & energy is the cornerstone to my professional success and the enjoyment of a happy, healthy family. This life balance is always difficult and often frustrating. I was introduced to the concept of locums trauma surgery through a friend and colleague. Upon my initial discussions, I found many of the locums features quite attractive. Those most important to me include maximizing my income as a fellowship trained specialist, collaborating with other trauma centers in an effort to improve my own regionally , and greatly improving quality time with my growing family. If you are considering locums work, you will need patience through the initial process and an organization that can analyze your needs above theirs and help manage/navigate the issues forthcoming. I am fortunate to have Simon Parsons as my team leader with CompHealth. Initially, we engaged in conversation regarding my personal and professional background, my ideal work parameters and my basic life philosophy. He was truly interested in getting to know me as an individual first before he could understand his role in positively impacting my career/life. Simon’s team worked diligently to provide a list of potential opportunities. With patience and a fair amount of paperwork, the right one emerged. Throughout the process (and even today), Simon keeps in contact with me to ensure that all is going well, discuss areas of improvement and inform me of opportunities on the horizon. I am confident that he views my success as a reflection of his own. The practice of medicine & surgery has allowed me to continue my specialty practice at home, collaboratively enhance both local and national trauma programs, and augment my annual income. Simon Parsons with CompHealth has made this all possible and I undoubtedly recommend their locum service without hesitation. Respectfully, Victor V. Dizon, DO FACS/FACOS
Thank you, Simon! This opportunity would not have be on the table had it not been for you. Thank you for your flexibility and understanding with my schedule. Thank you for the hard work and dedication to my career. I’m truly grateful to have worked with you. Please continue to keep me informed of any spectacular opportunities you might have out there.

“It is my honor to write a few paragraphs of endorsement for Simon Parsons. I have been one of Simon’s leaders at CompHealth Locum Tenens since December of 2013. It has been my privilege to work with him for the last two years. I find Simon to have an ideal attitude, a high work ethic and an open mind to coaching and feedback. After two years of working with him I can say with full confidence that he is the ultimate team player. Simon partners with his providers, the hospitals they work at, his fellow team members, our licensing and hospital privileging team, payroll and travel. Each person that Simon works with has nothing but the utmost respect for him. I receive compliments on his behalf daily.
Simon is an industry professional. I would consider him an expert at understanding the needs of those he works with. Once he understands those needs he is able to match his customers with their ideal situation. He excels at representing his providers. I frequently hear stories of how Simon went the extra mile to understand the story behind the CV/Resume. Simon shares that story in a way that sets his doctors apart from others leading to meaningful work experiences for those doctors.
Simon’s approach to life is inspiring and contagious. He has been a positive cultural contributor to our team. He sets the tone for others by seeing the good in life and working hard to obtain that good. Simon has inspired me personally. His excitement for his job has made a difference in my life. When I see his passion it ignites a similar passion within me.

Shout outs from our End of Assignment surveys/QA Evaluations:
From the day I first had the chance to work with him, Simon Parsons has continually followed up and acted as my champion and advocate. I feel fortunate to be working with him.
Simon Parsons has been very professional. He understood all my needs and concerns. He is the best!
Tim Hunsaker and Simon Parsons are your A Team. Those two gentlemen have a deft touch in executing the right balance between the physician and the hospitals. Their insights are priceless and they are genuinely interested and exceptionally thorough in the way we are matched with prospective employers. Thank you all for a job well done!
Simon Parsons helped me get an upgrade on an apartment for a long assignment so my wife would be happy.
Simon Parsons is always fantastic to work with. that is why I have referred multiple people to him.
Simon Parsons and Alissa Terry have both been incredible about helping me with assignments, trouble shooting problems, and making themselves available. Simon specifically has been incredible to me and is the main reason for my loyalty to Comphealth.
Simon has been and continues to be the reason I do locums.
Simon Parsons has always been open, helpful and friendly. Would like to continue my relationship with him, though the assignment seems to be winding down. Very responsible and seems to see beyond the calendar when putting together assignments.
Simon is always prompt and responsive for any question or concern, big or small. If he does not have an answer right away, he’ll figure out a way to find it. He is a great mediator between hospital and physician. Most importantly, Simon has a unique professional ability to match surgeons with the right hospital assignments that sets him apart. I have enjoyed working with CompHealth through him and am very appreciative of his time and talent.
Simon remembers personal interests of mine and treats me like a colleague while making sure everything is arranged just right for each assignment.
Always prompt in calling me back & follow up on all presentations to hospitals. I get the sense that Simon Parsons tries to find assignments for me rather than look for a body to fill is available assignments. He takes ownership and makes sure everything runs smoothly and effectively resolves any issues. Simon Parsons is the primary reason behind my rating.
I wanted to give a big shout out and THANK YOU to Simon and Jen on locking down another provider (Dr. Hydi Laidlaw-Smith) with Mercyhealth today! The attention to detail and effort Simon puts into his reverse marketing has once again booked us a new provider with a great client. Simon went into detail about Dr. Hydi’s background (former Army) and because of this, it turned out to be a great match for Mercyhealth’s Janesville location as 2 of their 3 surgeons in Janesville are Army surgeons. We didn’t have a job open with Mercyhealth, but Simon’s details were enough to give Kelli (client contact) reason to open some days for this great match.
