Why Practice with ApolloMD?

ApolloMD is physician operated with a Preferred Physician Ownership Model and we pride ourselves in providing a setting where our physicians maintain a high quality of life thru market-leading compensation, physician friendly contracts that are written in plain-language, and do not contain restrictive clauses or non-competes. Our physicians enjoy professional development opportunities and are supported through comprehensive on-site practice resources including administrative personnel. In addition, ApolloMD physicians are offered ownership options through our ApolloMD Partnership Program (APP), allowing them to build equity in a thriving group from day one, rather than waiting years to share in the success of a practice.

ApolloMD is a privately held, multispecialty physician practice headquartered in Atlanta, GA that is focused on rewarding physicians with quality of life, top income and ownership incentives that further their career goals while satisfying the emergency medicine, anesthesia, radiology, and hospital medicine needs of hospitals and healthcare facilities nationwide. This focus, which we have maintained since our inception nearly thirty years ago, has allowed us to become one of the most successful and fastest growing groups in the country. As a physician-owned and operated practice driven by the best interests of our doctors, we offer a different kind of partnership than traditional physician groups. We do not believe in non-competes and restrictive clauses. Our physicians work with us because they want tonot out of obligation.
