TACORE Medical

TACORE Medical Inc. is a physician recruiting company which was founded in 2000 and has thrived entirely on word of mouth referrals. They have never, in 18 years, spent so much as a nickel on advertising, branding, or glossy tri-folds. They have always believed that if they do our job right, their clients will advertise for them. And they have.

Their approach to recruiting is largely grounded in their experiences as young college football coaches and of the insights they gained while being involved in recruiting high school athletes at the highest level. Now, they simply apply those insights, combined with the same aggressive approach, to recruiting physicians.
