Looking for provider to share office in Durango, CO

Disclaimer: I have asked the site administrator and been told I can post this. This is NOT a job offer and I am NOT trying to hire anyone to work for me.

I live in Durango, CO. It's nice here.  I have a solo PM&R practice and have an office with 3 exam rooms.  I have room in my office for 1 (possibly more) providers to share on a full or part time basis.  We have the following resources in town:

-5 physiatrists, heavy in spine.  4 of us do EMG, 1 is very skilled in neuromuscular u/s. I'm trying to be more general spine/msk, EMG and work comp

-1 full time neurologist who is neuromuscular specialized at the local Mercy hospital.  He's super busy and hard to access.

-1 newer neurologist who just started a cash only practice.  He may or may not get busy but with the model he has excluded the vast majority of potential patients

-No endocrinologist

-not enough rheumatologists 

-no pain-psychology

-no neuropsychologists

-we have a full-service regional hospital, a smaller surgical hospital, infusion center, 3 facilities with MRI including a 3-tesla unit

If there is anyone interested (or you know anyone) in discussing a move to Durango and setting up your own practice within my space, please let me know.  After working in groups for about 12 years, I opened my own practice 4 years ago and it's the best thing I've ever done, and easier than I thought.  Overhead is very low and modern EMR systems are a game changer.  

A general neurologist would be instantly busy, as would any of the above list that are willing to take insurance. Given the number of us who alredy do EMG, a neurologist who isn't interested in EMG would be a better fit.

I enjoy participating in the AANEM Connect Forum for a number of reasons. There are very fundamental questions posed on a frequent basis that cause me to pause and ask myself, ‘Why didn’t I think of that?’ Also, I continue to learn new things when others contribute their thoughts and experiences. Connect is an excellent opportunity for members to interact and to address any topic, including those that may not be discussed at an annual meeting or journal article.
