To whom it may concern

It’s my absolute pleasure to recommend Mrs. Mary Ann Smith as employment recruiter.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time working with her, and came to know her as a truly valuable asset to absolutely anyone. She is honest, dependable, and incredibly hard-working. Beyond that, she is always on top of things.

Her knowledge of J1 visa positions and expertise was a huge advantage .

Without a doubt, I confidently recommend Mrs. Smith to anyone looking for J1 position.

Please feel free to contact me should you like to discuss my experience on searching for J1 positions and interaction with Mrs. Smith.  I’d be happy to expand on my recommendation.

Best wishes,
Dr. S. Kwon


I found Ms. Mary Ann Smith while searching for a J1 physician recruiter on the internet and was very grateful for the opportunity to work with her. She was very hard working and diligent in finding J1 waiver jobs for both my husband and I in Hematology/Oncology and Endocrinology respectively.  She was able to find us both positions at the same practice in a town with close proximity to a metropolitan area.  I would strongly recommend her as a physician recruiter for persons looking for J1 waiver jobs.

To whom it may concern:

I am writing this in order to recommend Maryann Smith as an independent recruiter. I was impressed on how fast she was able to find me a position. It was money well spent. She is very dependable and communicates much better than other recruiters I have worked with. I recommend her without hesitation.

Cristian Del Carpio, MD FACC


I used Mary Ann's recruiting services to find a J1 waiver position in a very short period of time. Although, this is a non-traditional setup for a recruiter, where the physician pays instead of the employer, she had lined up 4 interviews in a matter of days, one of which I signed with. I have nothing but good things to say about her. I would recommend her to anyone requiring services for a J1 waiver.

Thank you

To whom it may concern:

Mrs. Mary Ann Smith is extremely reliable.

I met her when I already knew the region where I wanted to work. Her diplomacy and persistence are outstanding. In less than 2 months she found the job I wanted. Her work discipline is excellent; she is well organized and she has a professional attitude.

During the interview process the employers did not hesitate to call her the best recruiter they’ve worked with; “ she is nice; professional; no pressure”.

As opposed to other recruiters, Mary Ann does not charge the employer.

Most importantly, if you are one of the docs with a crazy schedule, Mary Ann will be flexible and work with you and for you the way you suggest.

Mary Ann is an outstanding recruiter. I would recommend her without hesitancy. You will be thrilled, as she’ll find you the perfect job.


Anca Staii, M.D.


To Whom it May Concern,

The process of finding the right place, specially for J-1 visa holders (meaning a waiver area that you could be happy), is quite bothersome. For that reason I hired Mary Ann Smith, as a physician recruiter. She is hard worker, dedicated and reachable on weekends or after working hours.

My experienced with her was quite pleasant and I highly recommend her.

Cristobal Sanchez Metz, MD


Hi Mary Ann,

Thanks for being so concerned. I hope you are doing better too. Ballet, as great as it is, traumatize the toes, but it is always a pay off. The joy Harmony and beauty of mind and body moves... In fact I met a Ballerina, during my residency, who started her podiatry residency at age 40 with 3 kids to learn more about the feet!

Yes, you are right about tons of paperwork for visas but attorneys can be really slow and inattentive to the stressful situation in which the client is. I enjoyed working with you because you are very persistent and compassionate and got the interview with GPHA, that they were not willing to first offer. 

My friend is a lovely girl and Good doctor and makes a good impression too. She is very confident and I am sure can get the position with your direction and help, easily.

Thanks for everything and will let you know when the papers being filed.
You have a wonderful day and take care.



I am pleased to write this letter of reference for Mary Ann Smith. She helped me out this past year in my J1 waiver position. I had contacted her after looking at the website. In my first phone meeting she came across as a very enthusiastic and friendly person. She listened to my requirement and worked with me to get a position that was satisfactory to me. She was always in contact with me to update what was in progress, which was most helpful.  She has many contacts in various areas and is a great resource for anyone. There was enough opportunities by interviewing in several places in different states for me to decide on what was best for me. I did not feel pressured to accept a job that I was not interested in.

I thank her for all her support and would be happy to talk to anyone if there are any further questions.

Hi Mary Ann,

Thanks a million for helping me find a waiver job that I wanted. You understood our situation and worked with us to find the right job. Thanks for never pressuring me into taking just any job. I also thank you for helping me with my questions about the waiver process and what to expect.  It was a great pleasure working with you.

Thanks a lot. Keep up the good work. Both me and my husband are highly indebted to you.

Hey Mary Ann,

To Whom it May Concern;

Mary Ann was  recommended to me by friend after a frustrating search for  physiatry and pain management jobs. She is very kind, listens to all your concerns, requests etc. She always finds time to to talk  to you.  More importantly she is very efficient,  I had 2 interviews set up in states that I was  interested in within a week of signing up with her. I just signed up for a job in Delaware and i'm looking forward to  starting in July. Mary Ann,I can't thank you enough for making my job search extremely painless. It was a pleasure working with you. I strongly recommend her for any physcian in the job hunt.

Hi MaryAnn,

I did indeed called Dr. Haque yesterday, and I will call him again today, to tentatively schedule another meeting. He seems to be very interested indeed. As you know, I also have an interview with Dr. DeLeon on the 21st, and - the news!- I scheduled this morning an interview for the 20st at MorrisHeights! Things seem to really start going on in New York! I am going tonight at 9 pmat Lennox Hill, to be admitted, so most likely I will get in touch with you in a few days, after the baby is born-Again, thank you very much for all your effort-me and David really appreciate all your hard work.



Dear Maryan,

Hello, hope you'll be doing good. Maryann I've signed the contract for the practice inConnecticut and I've got my CT license too. I’ll start working very soon. I still want to thank you for all your efforts in trying to find a job for me. I was really impressed by your hard work and sincerity. Thank you so much. Take care.

Hi Maryann,

I spoke to the attorney yesterday and they spoke to Dr Goldring who showed willingness to move ahead so I did not call him. And as promised once I get the contract I will send you first of the 2 payments. Take care.

Saadia Qureshi 2004


Mrs. Smith has been working for me since Sept 2005.  For now she helps me to follow-up papers with employer and lawyer to secure j1 stuff.

Last year I had 4 interviews in Florida< two of them were nothing but excellent opportunities. But my wife did not like Florida heat and school system. So I went to Colorado. Hopefully for good.

If you want Florida - you will have 2-3 interviews in nice places within 1-3 months.

To me Mrs. Smith provided really great support in finding opportunity and furthermore: she was very patient when I changed my mind twice (before CO I agreed and then rejected opportunity in Georgia). I am pretty sure she is giving this kind of help to all her clients.

Bottom-line: She is great and for your money you will have perfect practice in short time and perfect service till you have everything secured for job (I paid off our agreement 4 months ago< but she still takes care of my papers).
Good luck,
Andrey Ilyasov


Hi Maryann

Finally some good news The DOS finally approved my  waiver in Georgia and have sent the letter though I haven't received it yet. I believe everything will be smooth from here Morehouse School of Medicine will be filling for an expedited H1 as soon as I send them the waiver recommendation. Thanks for all your efforts and help Will keep you posted.


Hi Maryann,

Got message from Morehouse this morning that my waiver and H1B have been approved. Hope to start work early October. Thanks for all your help and advice guess all is well that ends well.




Hi Ms Smith,

I hope you had a nice holiday weekend.

I had my interviews and had a good impression from all of the people I visited.

The interview in The Villages was mainly with Mrs. K, who is the office manager. I went back on Saturday morning as she requested and was able to speak briefly with Dr. K She seems to be enthusiastic with the idea, however there is no formal job offer yet. They will eventually send a proposal or get back to me.

 Dr. Falestiny seems to be interested. We had a long conversation during and after the interview in a very friendly atmosphere. He hasn't made any job offer yet. He wanted me to call him again after concluding with all my interviews.

 Dr. Kohli and Dr. Mitra were very interested. I met both, as well as David and the rest of their staff members. They offered the position during dinner. They are going to talk with my attending(s) (references) and will make the formal offer.

 This is the result of the interviews inFloridaso far.  If there is additional information I need to know I would appreciate your feedback.




Mary Ann,

Dr. Shaheen and I have decided to go with Dana Kelly as or attorney as well as Dr. Khanna for our waiver job.  They are working on the final details of the contract and I suspect it should be signed within the next week.  You shall receive your 2nd installment no later then the 1st week of October.  Thank you again for your help and we will recommend you to anybody else we know looking for a J1 Waiver.  There is no further need to find any more waiver opportunities for us and we have instructed all correspondence that Dr. Khanna may have regarding Dr. Shaheen be geared directly towards us.  Should anything change we will let you know, but I doubt that will be the case! Thanks again you really got us a great job!

Kind Regards, 
Adeel Karim

Hi we are moving this week to TN
the other good news, praise GOD, my wife got a residency position in Chattanooga in TN too.John our son will be going to a dedicated 24-hour day care. As for dr hasan. The last time I heard from him was more then 6 month ago I got busy and I never heard from him, and I think he just concentrated his calls to me when he needed the information most. I wish him well.
How is your family?

Take care now.


Things are going well. I'm staying very busy. Dr. Glenn is looking for a pediatrician, med-peds or a primary care physician with either a fellowship such as nephrology, endocrinology etc. still hard getting use to living in a small town. Hope you have a happy Thanksgiving as well. H. Cribe MD Internal Medicine


Hello   Ms. Smith,
Thanks for your note. My waiver just came through, PRAISE GOD!!!. I can start  getting some pay immediately. I had worked at the clinic without pay for the last several months and I am hoping that I will be transitioned to a paid employee by my employers without much friction. It has not been easy but I am praying that these three years will pass peacefully without any hitches.  Georgia is OK. The only draw back to being in a rural area is lack of options. It took about 4 weeks the other day before I could get an electrician. I do give thanks to God in all things. My son is doing great. He is such a joy. He is eager to please me 80% of the time and the remaining, he wants to-do his on thing; not too bad for a 2 year old. He is getting used to daycare. I hope your children are doing well.

Take care and God bless You


Dear Ms. Smith,
I am sending you the rest of the payment tomorrow; Feb. 28 Let me know when you've received it. Could you send me some kind of receipt or acknowledgement at I have paid you in full? I would like it for my records. I hope this finds you well


Sonita Estrada


Mrs. Smith,

as always, nice hearing from you, thanks for keeping me in your mind.  Things around here still pretty much unchanged from the last time we talked.  Papers are at the INS (now known as BCIS -Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services-), they gave me a notification quoting "between 30 and 90 days to process this  papers" and according to that, I am at about 45-47 days out of those 90 so hopefully I'll hear from them soon and once they come out of there it will all be just about over and I'll happily depart to New Mexico to start working FFFIINNAALLLYYY!!!!. So every day me and my wife pray for patience and for  the papers to move along in the process in an expedite manner.
Glad to hear from Dr. Hemangi Sane, she was indeed a colleague of mine in NYC, I'm happy she's gotten a waiver with your assistance!
Anyway, I'll try to call you tomorrow so we can talk in "real time" and let you know in details how the process is going although I pretty much tell you all in this email.

Again, thanks for keeping in touch, and at the same time I'll keep you updated as soon as I hear something.


Dr. J. Rivera Internal Medicine


Dear Ms. Smith
I mailed the second part of the payment to you today. Please let me know when you receive it. I feel that your services are outstanding, and I know I wouldn't be able to find such a wonderful position without your help! Thank you!!
