ABOUT was formed in 1989 in Long Beach California as a sole proprietorship. Its purpose is to recruit and place physicians and occasionally other health care professionals. The firm recruits and places all medical specialties. Half of the placements in jobs are primary care and half are specialists. The firm has placed over 500 physicians, currently has an active client base of sixty organizations and files of over 10,500 physicians. The firm does permanent placement on a contingency or retained basis and places and recruits Locum Tenens physicians in a cooperative relationship with a Locum firm for existing clients.
