What Clients Are Saying

Working with Lisa was an absolute pleasure!  I have worked with so many physician recruitment agencies over the past 25 years, and I found my experience with Integrated Connections was by far the most enjoyable and successful. She is incredibly efficient and provides exceptional service…I never felt like ‘just another client’ like you experience working with so many of the large recruitment agencies.  Lisa possesses a deep knowledge of the integrative medicine sector and she works with a wide network of well-qualified individuals across the country.  She scored a ‘10’ with us!

Lisa’s extensive knowledge and keen insight into the workings of a functional medicine practice have allowed me to see my new practice from the perspective of my future patients and staff.  Just one hour talking to her and I cannot believe the wealth of information and resources that I garnered to improve my marketing, networking, staffing plans and overall image.

Integrated & Functional Connections has been the only site I’ve found to be helpful and ultimately is the only one I’m using to search for and apply for my first post-Integrative Medicine fellowship position. The design is well thought out, intuitive and easy to navigate. It quickly put me in touch with multiple recruiters, including Lisa. Speaking with Lisa was such a pleasant experience. She was extremely helpful, friendly and gave me honest answers.  Would definitely use this site again in the future and will recommend it to my colleagues.

I was looking for physician jobs in integrative and functional medicine. I am so glad I found Integrated Connections because this site had by far the most opportunities consistent with what I was looking for. Over several months I had 6 interviews and received 5 job offers all from integratedconnects.com. Thank you!

Lisa McDonald called me within 2 hours of my inquiry and asked insightful questions to help me get the word out about my practice opportunity. I rarely see such efficiency and competence combined. I heard of Integrated and Functional Connections from a colleague, and would love to have heard about this service from others whom I contacted earlier requesting advice. This service is a brilliant offering, to help us integrative and functional medicine docs connect with one another.

“My experience working with Lisa McDonald of Integrated Connections was excellent! Lisa recruited me for a job as a nurse practitioner in a Functional/Integrative Medicine clinic and was not only knowledgeable about the specific job but was very well versed in the field of Functional Medicine. She was persistent but in a very gentle and professional way and managed being the middle-person quite gracefully. She really listened and heard all of my needs and helped me communicate them well to the employer. I would recommend her highly as a kind, intelligent and professional person to work with! “

Lisa provides exceptional services to health care provider specialists for functional and integrative medicine. Her professionalism, follow-through, persistence, and knowledge of the industry are, on a scale of one to ten, a clear ten.

Ingrid Kohlstadt, MD, MPH Physician Johns Hopkins University | Medical Author

Lisa is unique in that she not only has an intuitive feel for placement of the right people in ideal positions, but she is meticulous in conveying each side’s exact intentions during the process. There are no ‘surprises’ when she lists, connects or negotiates for two parties.

Professional, trustworthy, big picture AND detail-oriented are apt descriptors. Lisa McDonald is a professional in every sense of the word.

Bettina Herbert, MD Functional and Integrative Physician at Center for Occupational and Environmental Medicine
