Provider Profile: Dr. Adedipe, Family Medicine
On any given day, locum tenens physicians are at work across the country supplementing healthcare workforces, delivering needed treatment, and lifting up communities. What many don’t realize is that locums physicians also play a critical role in providing care for large scale humanitarian efforts. That was the case when Dr. Adedipe stepped up for an assignment supporting the Afghan evacuee efforts last year.
Dr. Adedipe traveled to the East Coast and worked in field hospitals set up on military bases to welcome and care for those evacuating Afghanistan when they arrived in America—many with no resources or family with them. In order for Dr. Adedipe to focus on this critical work, he needed to know that everything surrounding his assignment was taken care of.
That’s where working with Floyd Lee Locums made all of the difference. Dr. Adedipe had worked with multiple locums agencies prior to partnering with Floyd Lee Locums—and found they weren’t always working for his best interests. In one stark case, he even noted one of those locum agency relationships lasted just a week due to the assignment being misrepresented and his needs not being taken into account.
“Floyd Lee Locus is the best locums company I’ve worked with,” said Dr. Adedipe. “I was always checked in on by my recruiter Leslie Munn who was phenomenal, my requests were taken seriously, and the compensation was excellent.”
That support took several forms for Dr. Adedipe—from Floyd Lee Locums booking all the flights and a rental car to get him to the East Coast, to proactively moving him to a hotel closer to the military base so the commute was easier in the middle of winter.
“In my position with the ISOS Refugee program, I interacted with a lot of other providers from other locums agencies,” said Dr. Adedipe. “It was clear I was more informed than my colleagues, with Floyd Lee Locums keeping me in the loop about my contract and the program at large.”
Dr. Adedipe says what drew him to this work was working with refugees. Getting to focus on that was made all the easier by having a strong locums agency in his corner. He advises everyone working with locums agencies to do a little bit of research and get to know the companies.
“Dr Adedipe is wonderful to work with and is always so pleasant when talking to him,” shared his Healthcare Consultant Leslie Munn. “He’s super responsive on any asks that I’ve had and I look forward to working with him in the future.”
This Doctors’ Day, we salute Dr. Adedipe for his work with the Afghan refugees. Next up, Dr. Adedipe says he’ll be renewing his license in Georgia and looking for the next great locum tenens opportunity.
