My Doctor Medical Group, a private membership-based concierge medical practice in downtown San Francisco, is recruiting for an experienced and technologically-savvy practice manager.
My Doctor Medical Group takes an agile, team-based approach, with attention to people-centered design and intelligent application of technology.

- Behavioral medicine and mental health: Addiction medicine, mental health care, biofeedback, and psychedelic-assisted therapy (ketamine and, when approved, MDMA).
