Culture

We have a very unique culture at LFVC, so it is important to make sure that we are as good of a match for you as you are for us. Each member of our team must be able to dabble in every department; there are no one-trick-ponies here. We expect everyone to be cross-trained across all departments so that any one person can help our patients in any way that they need.

On top of that, each person has his or her own specialty that goes outside of the usual job description. From community outreach to quality control to social media, we will find a way to work your passion into your position.

Working at LFVC is not just another job. It is a career path.

Our patients love that they can come back from year-to-year and recognize the same faces, and we do, too. We are a tight-knit group who works hard and plays hard. Interested in joining us? Keep reading.
