Director of HR

South Carolina

Odell gained a comprehensive understanding of our Emergency Department Nurse Practitioner / Physician Assistant needs and had good knowledge of our community’s attractions. After exhausting our internal and external resources to fill these positions, Odell Medical Search in short time successfully solved our Emergency Department provider needs. As the Director of Human Resources, I have often worked with outside recruiters. Odell Medical Search provided us with qualified candidates that we otherwise would never have know about. Odell Medical Search will continue to be the first call I make should we have a need for external assistance. I highly recommend Odell Medical Search and believe they will provide the highest quality service to your healthcare organization’s recruitment needs.


Director of Staffing Medical Center

South Carolina

She has a good understanding of our interviewing/hiring process and has provided us with many top quality candidates. She is very assertive, responsive and always accessible. She is skilled in effectively sourcing candidates from a variety of sources and has the ability to connect and relate to people in the healthcare profession. We thoroughly enjoy working with her.


Director of HR Medical Center


I can assure you that she is a fantastic healthcare recruiter and has provided me with some of the best candidates. She is an extremely thorough recruiter and continually maintains contact with you throughout the entire process – from presentation of the candidate, interview and offer. I would highly recommend using her!


Oncology Practice Administrator


I wanted to take a moment and comment on the great experience I had working with Odell Medical Search to place a Nurse Practitioner in my office. The quality of candidates Odell presented was excellent. They listened to what the needs of my practice were and pre-screened applicants so that only good “matches” were presented to us. They facilitated great communication between us and the candidates to set up interviews. They had great follow-up with me to determine how the interview went and answer any additional questions. Once we had selected the candidate to be offered the job, they worked diligently to secure placement in our office. I would without reservation recommend working with Odell Medical Search to other practices. From beginning to end the experience was a very positive one and I would call to work with Odell again should we have a need.


Oncology Practice Administrator


I have worked with Odell Medical Search over the past 3-4 years for recruiting Oncology specialized nurses. Odell Medical Search has always presented me with numerous resumes and has taken the time to really listen to my specific needs for the position I need to fill. They understand the difference in the various nursing duties and are very good at weeding out the ones that will not meet the criteria.
I have been able to hire serveral candidates with Odell’s assistance. They are quick to respond to my calls or emails and work hard to find the applicant that will match up with my office. When I have a need, I can be assured that Odell will get me applicants!


Director, Clinical Education


I would just like to communicate on the customer service, professionalism, and positive attitude I enjoy from your firm. My Recruiter is by far the most knowledgeable, thoughtful, and best follow-up person I have met in your industry. I have hired 3 of my Clinical Nurse Specialists from Odell in the last 6 months and am delighted with each of them. My Recruiter has a feel for nursing and an understanding of the needs of my medical center that I have not experienced elsewhere. Many thanks for providing us with your quality candidates. I look forward to our continued professional relationship!.


Sr. Staff Recruiter


I never got a chance to thank you for working so hard with me and the pleasant experience I encountered to hire our new employee. Again, you were very pleasant to work with and your communication skills are above and beyond reproach, everything I requested of you was on point, with no delays. If by chance we can work together in the near future, it would be a pleasure. Thanks for everything you did to make the process complete.


Heart Group


After working with SO many recruiting firms companies, I was amazed with the professionalism and also the type of Cardiothoracic Physician Assistants that Odell sends to us. We really look for quality in recruiting, not quantity. I feel that when Odell starts their healthcare recruiting process for us (having multiple facilities), I can count on success.


Practice Director


I really appreciate your level of professionalism and dedication to my practice. Both crucial positions that you were able to place for me have worked out great. Your attention to detail and first understanding of what I was looking for in a candidate really helped to ensure an organizational fit for our group. I believe your ability to develop real relationships both with your clients as well as your candidates is what makes you stand out from your competition.




Thank you so much for assisting us in our search for our Oncology Navigator Nurse Practitioner. With my personal background in Agency Recruitment, I have high expectations when dealing with search firms. I can tell you that Odell Medical Search met and exceeded all of my expectations. From the initial conference call to understand my need and the culture of our company to the thorough understanding of his candidates’ backgrounds and motivations, you truly did a wonderful job of finding the best candidate for our position. Odell was always timely with his follow up and had great “candidate control” throughout the process. It seemed like they were always a step ahead of me. Thank you again and I look forward to working with you in the future.


Manager of Oncology Nursing


Odell Medical Search is a Oncology recruiting service that I have used both as the potential employee and as the potential employer. I found their services to be invaluable and forthright. I believe that Odell Medical Search attempts to find the best option for the prospective employees and employers. I would absolutely recommend their use in both situations.


Director of Clinical Operations


The purpose of this letter is to serve as a recommendation for working with Odell Medical Search As Director of Clinical Operations for an 11 physician medical oncology practice, I frequently work with professional healthcare recruiters to find qualified candidates for vacancies. Over the past several years, Odell Medical Search has provided me with qualified candidates, many of whom have been hired. They consistently are thorough with their prequalification of all candidates to ensure that only the best resumes are presented to me for consideration. They are very respectful of my time as their client, and I believe they are one of the best medical recruiters that I have had the opportunity to work with. Certainly, when I have a staffing need, Odell Medical Search is the first medical recruiting firm that I contact. I highly recommend Odell Medical Search, and believe that they will provide excellent service for your medical professional recruitment needs..


Practice Director Oncology Practice


I have worked with Odell Medical Search for the past several years. My experience has been very positive every time I have worked with Odell. I have worked with other agencies as well but found that the best candidates were the ones that Odell Medical Search located and brought to me. these candidates have also been long term employees and are still employed today.


Recruiter Cancer Center


I don’t like many of the healthcare recruiters out there and am very selective in who I will work with as I don’t have time to train them on how to do their jobs. I don’t have that problem with Odell as they know exactly what they are doing and I am very happy with the service they provide.


HR Generalist


Odell Medical Search has become my first call when our facility needs assistance with a difficult to fill role. Odell has presented us with excellent candidates and is easy to communicate with throughout the process. I have recommended Odell to recuiters at our other Health system facilities and welcome the chance to work with her in the future.


Nurse / Allied Health Recruiter

New Jersey

I have had the pleasure of working with one of your healthcare recruiters on several occasions. I have found her to be very easy to work with and a true professional in every sense of the word.


Administrator, Department of Surgery


I would be extremely remiss if I didn’t take a few minutes to send you a short note thanking you for your service and assistance in our recruitments needs. Specifically, my department required three physician assistants for cardiothoracic surgery, two on the adult service and one on the pediatric service. Your firm not only exceeded my expectations by providing three highly qualified candidates, but the time frame in which this was accomplished was truly exceptional, about three months from start to finish. Prior to using your firm, my past experience with search firms and recruiters was horrid. I wouldn’t hesitate to use your firm again to meet my recruitment needs. Again, thank you for your assistance and service. You have my permission to use me as a reference; I’ll be more than happy to speak with any organization on your behalf.

CT Surgery Physician Assistant


Just a note of thanks for your efforts with helping me find my new job. It has taken a while but the persistence was greatly appreciated. You made me feel like a friend and your frequent encouragement and coaching helped me continue until I did find the right job for me; one that I feel is a great fit and one that I will be able to grow with professionally.
Thanks for everything!


Oncology Nurse Pracititoner


Recently, I’ve had the opportunity to work with one of your Executive Search Consultants and it is because of him, his diligence, skill and assistance that I am now busily making preparations to embark on a new adventure in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Having never worked with a recruiter previously, I didn’t know what to expect. From his initial call to me, to my onsite interview and acceptance was a mere seven days. In this time he skillfully guided the process and made it look effortless. Even though I know it was more like a juggler. He helped me make an informed decision and provided excellent intelligence on the company, interviewer and expectations. He is a sterling example of what I understand to be the Odell Medical Search standards of excellence. He exudes a contagious enthusiasm, demonstrates professionalism and is an exceptional communicator.




I want to thank you so much for helping me find my new job. I already know that I have made the right decision. I can tell that I am going to like everyone and that this hospital is the place for me! I want you to know that without all of your help, I would not have gotten this great opportunity, and I am very grateful to you for that. You have provided a great service to me, from informing me of this opportunity all the way through writing an appropriate thank you to my interviewer. Again, thanks for everything.


Safety Officer

South Carolina

Odell Medical Search altered the course of my life. I had never received an inquiry from a recruiter before and the fateful day that Odell called me is seared in my memory. I have worked with employment agencies in the past but not with such great trust and reliability.


Nursing Director, Cardiac ICU, CCU, Telemetry

South Carolina

Over the last few months, I have had the opportunity to deal with numerous management recruiters. Most recruiters focus on the “USDA BEEF GRADE”, that is “how select a candidate are you?” in terms of pedigree. You really took the time to discover and ask questions about my career goals, my family circumstances, my desired locations, and desired positions. I did not once hear the adage “look at the position over the place”, which is what I heard from several other recruitment companies. The daily “check-in” phone calls were a beautiful touch that made the entire process less anxiety producing and tolerable. As I told you on the phone, “you have a uniquely different approach to recruiting.” It also does not hurt to be recruited by someone listed on Google. Please let me know whatever and whenever I can sing accolades, I will be the Vienna Boys choir for your company.


Clinic Operations Manager, Bone Marrow Transplant


I am very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with you to reach my career goals. Your personal approach to recruitment is so natural that we became friends in the process. I remember saying to you, “We are two women walking thru life together”. Your guidance and commitment to the process was relentless. I know that I can count on you. In you I have found more than a recruitment specialist; I have found a career coach and a friend.


Cardiothoracic Surgery Physician Assistant


Odell Medical Search is fabulous!!! My recruiter and her team really do a wonderful job and keep in touch at every turn. Odell work’s with you to keep you on top of everything and works hard to move things in a positive direction at all times. On a personal note, they are very friendly and trustworthy. I was very impressed as Odell is very much “in the know” and knowledgeable about healthcare!!! My recruiter promised to keep in touch after the fact and indeed, she has. My recruiter w/ Odell is the only recruiter for me should I need one again!! I will and have recommended Odell extremely and highly!


Unit Educator

South Carolina

I am really enjoying working with Odell Medical Search. I worked through a recruiter for an interview and the relationship between the recruiter and myself was very different. I feel Odell Medical Search is much more thorough and on top of everything.


Oncology Nurse Practitioner

District of Columbia

I have had the pleasure of working with Odell Medical Search as I sought a new position as a Oncology Nurse Practitioner. My experience as a job candidate with Odell was very professional with a lot of attention to details, which I found most impressive. Odell Medical Search was in close contact with me and the potential employer throughout the entire process ensuring that the seemless job of recruitment was well done. I felt comfortable communicating all of my needs and desires that were most important to me in a new NP position. Odell did an outstanding job to ensure those needs were met by my new employer. It is without reservation that I would recommend Odell Medical Search to others as well as keep in contact with Odell in the future.


Area Director of Case Management,


This letter is written, on behalf of one of your recruiters. He and I had the opportunity of working over the course of my recruitment for the position, which I elected to accept with the organization. I personally felt compelled to write this letter on his behalf. Throughout the process, he kept me in tune to what was going on. He actually informed me of the reasons, why I was not being contacted, when the local recruiter was ill. He guided me through the process, and gave suggestions through excellently created handouts on how to go through the process of interviewing. Through his guidance, it was apparent to me how he helped me tremendously to focus and center on my own strengths. I feel he is a great employee and should receive just praise for his unique traits. While, I would like to believe he and I had bonded in some way, and I know he was truly impressed with my references being able to give accurate knowledge in regards to my capabilities; I also believe he does the same fine job for all his recruits, and I just happened to be lucky enough to have him as my recruiter. I have worked in the medical field for 33 years, and by far he is the best recruiter I’ve worked with.


Cardiothoracic Surgery Physician Assistant


I never talk to head hunters, but that day arrived when it was time to make a move and Odell Medical Search had left me a number. I called. Good move. My Recruiter wasn’t the first person I spoke to but they were the one that got the job done. Professional and good natured, she mothered me through the process and settled me into a work setting that finds me excited about work again. I recommend her services without reservation.

Thanks again,


Cardiothoracic Surgery Physician Assistant

New York

Just wanted to say it was a wonderful experience working with you. Thank you very much for your kind words of reassurance at times when I saw nothing but problems. It is clear to me that without your support I would not be able to achieve these results – both salary- and time-wise. I really appreciate you being by my side through the whole process and not just in the beginning!


Nurse Manager, Operating Room

Good afternoon, I had the opportunity to work with one of your Healthcare Recruiters recently and wanted to let you know what a gem you have for an employee. She is without a doubt the most dedicated, reliable and trustworthy healthcare recruiter I have ever worked with. Prior to my encounter with her, my opinion of recruiters was similar to that of used car salesmen or ambulance chasers. They have been unreliable, distant and in it for the money. Your Recruiter always followed up when she said she would and told me more than once that she wanted to find an opportunity that would be best for me. She was also very understanding and compassionate when one of my dogs died suddenly (If you’re not a dog person you may not understand the loss one feels).
Although I accepted a position with another organization, if the time comes for me to look for another position I will only work with Odell Medical Search and I will refer her to anyone looking for a position in healthcare leadership. You are very fortunate to have such a hard-working and dedicated professional. I was very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with your recruiting firm.


Administrator, Department of Surgery


Odell Medical Search recently worked with me during my search for a position as a Palliative Nurse Practitioner. They were tireless in their efforts to do everything they could to make sure they found the right fit for me and my future colleagues….


Oncology Nurse Practitioner


Odell Medical Search, recently worked with me regarding a medical provider position for a national Oncology group practice. I found them to be extremely pleasant, informative and caring. They displayed deep understanding and appreciation for my needs as well as the needs of the employer we were working with. Their communication skills were a blend of personal and professional attributes resulting in comfortable and sincere ongoing interactions. They appeared to work hard for both parties, desiring only a win/win outcome. They gave the impression and lived by the attitude that the only priority was complete satisfaction between the parties they served as mediator for. I have only good thoughts and comments to make on our interactions and their work that spanned over several months of time. Over the years I have worked with many other professional search personnel who could learn much from Odell’s communication, style and commitment.


Palliative Care Nurse Practitioner

South Carolina

Odell Medical Search recently worked with me during my search for a position as a Palliative Nurse Practitioner. They were tireless in their efforts to do everything they could to make sure they found the right fit for me and my future colleagues. They showed a keen understanding of the environment in which I wanted to work and went out of their way to make sure that was accomplished. Their communication skills are always positive and they listen with an open mind. This was my first experience with a search consultant and before I accepted my current position I had already recommended them to one of my former colleagues. I would not hesitate to work with Odell again.


Cardiothoracic Surgery Physician Assistant

New Jersey

I am writing this letter of great appreciation for Odell Medical Search. I have been working with their recruiter for approximately the last 2 months. She has been an incredible recruiter for both the Hospital and for me as a Physician Assistant. She has handled all matters in the timeliest fashion. She has been absolutely phenomenal, and I am not afraid to use this word to describe the quality of her work, to follow through, and make all the necessary arrangements to move my credentialing process with the hospital as fast as possible. It has been a great pleasure to work with someone like Odell Medical Search.
