Ophthalmologists and Optometrist, Binghamton, New York


Doctors

Our doctors are active in the medical education of staff, patients, medical students, and resident physicians.

The more smoothly and efficiently the practice runs, the more effectively the doctors can see patients. Doctor productivity is enhanced by delegating those tasks not requiring a physician's expertise to appropriately trained staff. Doctors maintain and enhance their skills by continuing education. They join the rest of the practice in their commitment to excellence, integrity and patient care.
