Practice has 3 Psychologists now and 1 Social Worker on staff. They are so busy they are turning down work and they are looking for someone that wants to work either 4 days a week probably see 5 patients a day or 2 days a week or even 3. They will charge the patient and then pay you so you need to be a contractor and take care of all your own insurance, bills, etc. The hours are flexible but you will have to see some patients in the evenings. This role is in Mississauga and he wants people that are OK with that. He will expand for the right person. They are using 2 other agencies that have produced nothing for them.
