“They help make going to work a pleasure.  I love that they help resolve any issues at our job site, they are caring and value you as a person, a doctor and a team member. I feel I can reach out to TBH at anytime for any reason.  I feel I am working with family and people that care.They have so many different job opportunities including flexible hours and days. I work 4 days a week full time and colleagues are able to work 7 to 10 16h shifts a month or do combo work including outpatient, inpatient. There are so many opportunities to find the right fit with TBH and they truly value and help accommodate work life balance.”

“I have been working for TBH for two years and although I am a part—time staff physician, I have always been made to feel I belong to the greater TBH community. As the mother of a small child I cannot emphasize enough the value of having a flexible and accommodating work environment and have found this and more to be true of TBH. From day one, the TBH culture is one in which all employees are valued, respected and empowered to carve out a position uniquely suited to their individual needs. While TBH physicians come from a variety of backgrounds and have a variety of interests and goals, we share in common a commitment to provide high quality care because while TBH demands the best from us, it provides a strong foundation for good work in return. At TBH, physician satisfaction and well being are not just catchy terms given lip service but are truly made a top priority. TBH seems to recognize how essential physician job satisfaction is to the health and functioning of the company at large. Thank you TBH!”

“I started at TBH in 2000 having become disgruntled with the irrationalities of the managed care system necessary to maintain my private practice. After all, as a Psychiatrist I thought my job was to fight against irrationality not cater to it. Joining TBH allowed me to continue doing the work that I love and am most suited for while no longer having to attend to that chaos…”

– Ron Seff, MD

“Since leaving a very busy private solo practice (acute inpatient combined with outpatient psychotherapy & med management) and coming to TBH, there has rarely been a day I have not been thankful for this move. I have often told people when I joined TBH, I thought I had died and gone to heaven. The opportunities, in addition, are limitless and the support/flexibility unmatched by any previous associations I have had in my professional career…”

– Sheldon Jones, MD

“TBH attracts extremely talented clinicians from amazingly diverse backgrounds and with unique life experiences. Those times we get together are always fun and an opportunity to learn from one another. It feels important to find that perfect ‘fit’ with the TBH culture and the customers we serve when recruiting new doctors. Those who value collegial relationships and enjoy working as a team find this work most satisfying.”

– Russell J. Monroe, Jr., MD

“Working with Dr. Gary Hayes and the TBH crew has been an exceptional experience from the outset. I recently completed subspecialty training in Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, spending many weekends providing coverage at Northern California sites along the way. After a much-needed lengthy vacation that was fully supported by the TBH home office, I began my first full-time position with the company four months ago. I got exactly what I asked for – a full time position with an ACT model program here in San Diego that would challenge me clinically, while leaving me the flexibility in my schedule to enjoy the lovely city I now call home. Surfs up!

“Gary and his team truly understand the importance of each doctor’s needs being addressed individually within the company, and they do so with a personal touch that makes you feel truly valued. I have been so pleased with my experience at TBH that I have referred several friends and colleagues to consider joining the team, and I am excited and very satisfied to stay on as a full-time psychiatrist. I haven’t discovered any opportunities that approximate the quality of my experience working with Gary and the TBH family. Highly recommended!”

– Todd Young, MD

“The outpatient work that TBH offers in a San Diego suburb has been quite fulfilling as one feels one is a contributing factor in patients’ improvement and the relationship one has with the company has been quite satisfying as one feels the company pays exquisite attention to the needs of each individual.  Freud talked about the importance of work and relationships, and in my experience in various clinic / hospital and company settings, it’s not easy to find such a wonderful emphasis on and balance of both that exists at TBH.  It’s quite an accomplishment that the Giant of psychiatry surely would be smiling from beyond!”

– Henry Phan, MD

“I’ve been employed by TBH for over 2 years. Prior to working for TBH, I had the opportunity to work at several hospitals in Northern and Southern California as a locum tenens psychiatrist. TBH has been the BEST company to work with. Why? Staff are friendly, professional and responsive. Gary has been able to maintain a human and personal connection with doctors (no matter how large the company has grown). Psychiatrists are respected and valued. We look forward to our annual retreat in beautiful Napa. The fact that family are welcome at the retreat speaks volumes about the philosophy of the company. ”

“As a single parent, I have valued the flexibility and openness of TBH. The hours are good, and at my facility, weekend call is optional and I treasure having holidays to spend with my family. I enjoy my job and I have the privilege and joy to work with bright, diverse physician colleagues. Gary and staff have been very accepting of my requests and I feel that my ideas and goals are really considered before decisions are made. It is also nice to know that because the organization is growing and growing, there are many sites to choose from. So, if a physician is at a site that is not a good ‘fit’, Gary makes an effort to find a good match for the physician at one of the other sites.”

“The position has worked well for me…to be able to enjoy my job and to enjoy my life outside of work–to spend time with my son, to run, bike and hike and travel. I’m very pleased and happy to be a TBH doc.”

– Melanie M. Watkins, MD

“I travelled a bit of a circuitous route to TBH, interviewing with the company, but then accepting a position at the VA. The reasons I came back to TBH were:
#1. The focus on clinical care, with minimal bureaucracy and a commitment to making excellent patient care the priority.
#2. The people that make up TBH, both clinicians and staff, who are enthusiastic and positive people who care about what they do.”

– Josh Kane, MD

“After working for TBH in the role of an independent contract for over two years, I signed on in February of this year under the new sixteen hour shift model and could not be more satisfied. Working 16 hour shifts can be overwhelming at first, but after getting a command for the hospital system and creating a work plan, it is very manageable. It does require intense focus, but allows me to maintain my own wellness on my numerous days off, which is a significant challenge for providers in today’s healthcare environment. One of my great passions in life is travel, and since moving to the 16 hour shift model, I have been able to climb the Great Wall of China, hike Machu Picchu, and ski Jackson Hole.”
