Provider Profile: Prabh Grewal, Oral Surgeon
For any servicemember transitioning back to civilian life, the change can be challenging. For Dr. Prabh Grewal, it was a big step to take in July 2020, especially after service in the Army for 14 years. Combine that with the fact that he did it during an ongoing pandemic, and a whole host of additional obstacles present themselves.
That’s why, just about a year ago, it was critical for him to have the runway and confidence to explore private practice at his own speed. With the high standards he learned in the military and self-sufficiency to tackle any problem, Dr. Grewal found a like-minded partner in Floyd Lee Locums.
“I was getting cold calls from headhunters just trying to make a buck, and it felt like they didn’t actually care about me,” said Dr. Grewal. “With Floyd Lee Locums’ Healthcare Consultant, Ben Russell, I felt immediate comfort. He was transparent and asked me questions about my career goals and future. I knew he was looking to place me in the facility that was right for me, and he had done his homework.”
Making the transition into civilian medicine seamless, coordinating locums logistics and providing end-to-end support is what sets Floyd Lee Locums apart. It flows through all parts of the organization to alleviate stress and accelerate provider placement.
“Even when I worked with Amy Meyer, their credentialing expert, she assured me she knew all the processes and requirements for a dentist,” continued Dr. Grewal. “I offered to get some of the credentialing done myself but never had to. I have never come across a credentialing person who was so efficient, and I was absolutely blown away by her.”
While the company hopes every provider has a positive experience in their placements, every clinician comes with a personal life, too. During Dr. Grewal’s contract, Floyd Lee Locums was able to arrange for his family to make multiple visits, so he felt anchored by those who knew and loved him. It is part of why the organization prioritizes tailored locum tenens to fit each person.
As Dr. Grewal put it, “There are a lot of similarities between Floyd Lee Locums and my military service. I immediately knew I was part of a team, we had one mission together, and it was clear everyone was on my side. I have referred other military friend to the organization because I know how they will be treated. Even when I found my ideal private practice and decided not to renew my contract, they were congratulatory and supportive, even though I was leaving a vacancy.”
That is the kind of partnership Floyd Lee Locums hopes to have with every clinician. But it is especially important when the company can support those coming home from military service and their families. That’s when, for all servicemembers, it is always truly our honor to help.
