Smithtown, NY (PRWEB) February 26, 2013
After nearly 2 million votes were cast in the Best of Long Island poll, North Shore Eye Care has once again received “Best Eye Care Provider” status in this year’s 8th Annual Event, according to eye surgeon, Jeffrey Martin, MD, medical director of North Shore Eye Care.
“Every year we have been nominated or won this award. We have been humbled by the number of voters and patients who recognize our dedication to quality patient care,” said Dr. Martin. “Having this many local residents of Long Island hold North Shore Eye Care in such high regard is truly an honor.”
During its 50-year history on Long Island, North Shore Eye Care has been recognized for superior service by its peers and referring physicians. But having neighbors and patients nominate North Shore Eye Care for Best on Long Island serves as a quiet reinforcement that their efforts to provide the highest quality eye care in a personal, caring environment have not gone unnoticed.
The Bethpage Best of Long Island contest is conducted each year by the Long Island Press newspaper. Well over 1.2 million people across Long Island voted this year, which turns out to be the largest participation in the event’s 8-year history. Between July 1 – August 31st, voters were allowed to choose ‘Best Of’ in 360 total categories. The top 15-18 nominees advanced to the final voting round, which began October 1. Voting closed on December 15, and the results were recently announced.
“As one of Long Island’s fastest growing - and most established - comprehensive eye care providers, it’s difficult to grow as we have over the past few years while at the same time maintaining the personal patient care we have been known for all these years,” said Dr. Martin. ‘With offices now in five major locations throughout eastern Long Island, we’re very pleased that our patients find our quality of care worthy of note.”
North Shore Eye Care is Long Island’s most established full-service comprehensive eye care provider. This year they are celebrating 51 years of eye care excellence since Dr. Sidney Martin founded the practice in 1962.
