How do I use a like term if my string my vary but always starts Profile:  ConditionString = "Profile: Physician Profile-Surgery"

I have several of these, but it would be for Surgery, Medicine, etc.

Sub CopyOnString()
Dim ConditionString As String, MasterSheetName, NewSheetName
Dim LastRow As Integer, ii, FindCount, StartRange, EndRange
MasterSheetName = "Profile Export"
Worksheets(MasterSheetName).Activate
FindCount = 0
StartRange = 0
EndRange = 0
NewSheetName = MasterSheetName
ConditionString = "Profile: Physician Profile-Surgery"
LastRow = Worksheets(MasterSheetName).UsedRange.Rows.Count
 For ii = 1 To LastRow
  If Worksheets(MasterSheetName).Cells(ii, 1) = ConditionString Or ii = LastRow Then
    If FindCount > 0 Then ' not first find
    EndRange = ii - 1
    Worksheets.Add , Worksheets(NewSheetName)
   
    DoEvents
    NewSheetName = Split(Worksheets(MasterSheetName).Cells(StartRange + 1, 1).Value, ":", 2)(1)
    ActiveSheet.Name = NewSheetName
    DoEvents
    Worksheets(MasterSheetName).Range(LTrim(CStr(StartRange)) & ":" & LTrim(CStr(EndRange))).Copy _
    Destination:=Worksheets(NewSheetName).Range("1:1")
    Worksheets(NewSheetName).Columns("A:I").AutoFit

I got it to work by this:
 If Worksheets(MasterSheetName).Cells(ii, 1) = ConditionString Or ii = LastRow And InStr(Cells(ii, 1), ConditionString) > 0 Or ii = LastRow Then
