Jim Sloves, MD

Jim Sloves, MD has been a vRad radiologist since 2010. Dr. Sloves completed a cross sectional imaging fellowship at John Hopkins University and his residency at North Shore University Hospital. "I love to be active outdoors whenever possible, which comes naturally to the small, vibrant community I call home. I am a skiing fanatic—which also comes naturally to Lake Tahoe—and also enjoy mountain biking, SUPing, staying in shape and living a simple life with my family and sons."

I spend nearly 100% of my shift reading images. Here's how.

Can you recall the last shift during which you spent close to 100% of your time on clinical duties?

I can. It was my last shift. I had no administrative obligations, no committee meetings, no software glitches, no running around trying to find a physician or tech—just eyes on images and voice into the mic.

Then again, every shift is like that for me. After working in several private practices, I’ve spent the last 11 years doing full-time teleradiology—backed 24/7 by a superb support team of 51 dedicated staff.
