It was a most rewarding experience on all fronts.  The working environment was very suitable, staff extremely helpful and pleasant, patients most appreciative, etc. I was very satisfied with my accommodations, use of car, and overall arrangements.  I have made some dear friends there and sincerely hope to return someday:) Thank you for this wonderful opportunity and I look forward to future experiences.

Margaret Zimmerman, FNP (Commenting on her assignment at a Southeast Alaska healthcare center)

WMS is the best travel company I have worked for. Best paying and the staff always provide the needed back ground information for each new travel site.  You know where you are going and what to expect when you get there.  Travel and living arrangements have always been excellent.  The president , Mary Ellen Doty is awesome, a real hands on leader.  The best in the business"

Mary Caffee, ANP

"Wilderness Medical Staffing is a delightful and exciting company to work for.  The clinic placements range from suburban to rural.  Mary Ellen Doty, ANP and owner has transportation and housing arranged for the provider before they arrive so you simply need to begin working.

Bush Alaska presents many challenges and Mary Ellen knows by experience what those challenges are as she has worked in many of those clinics herself, which leads to the support you will receive from her while you are in an assignment.  Her accountant Peggy is also very supportive and kind during the orientation process for timesheets and the salary reimbursements.  No question is too annoying.

Lower 48 staffing companies donít understand the challenges faced by the practitioners in bush Alaska, but Wilderness Medical Staffing does, end of story. .. ."

"Mary Ellen and the crew at Wilderness Medical Staffing have opened many doors for me professionally, affording me and my family an intimate connection with native and non- native villages throughout interior Alaska. Sure it has been a privilege to provide healthcare to some really interesting people, but for me the rewards are the friendships earned, and it is so easy with Wilderness Medical Staffing taking care of all the travel and logistics."

Greg Sayers, PA- C

"Working with Wilderness Medical Staffing has been a great experience:  A straight up company working conscientiously to take care of their providers.  I have confidence they bring the best compensation packages possible for each assignment.  There is always a good line-up of locums opportunities, most of which are in unique, interesting, locations in Alaska.  Highly recommended!" Timothy Jones, PA-C

"I thoroughly enjoy working with Wilderness Medical Staffing.  I have all the benefits of being self-employed without the billing headaches.  Mary Ellen understands the clinician and client needs. She carefully screens the opportunities to ensure a great fit.  Sheila is a pleasure to work with for credentials and other documentation."
