For the third year in a row, local residents across Long Island have recognized the doctors and staff of North Shore Eye Care for being the best in the their respective fields, as reported by the Long Island Press newspaper in their 2016 ‘Best of Long Island’ contest.
North Shore Eye Care won ‘Best LASIK Surgery Practice,’ ‘Best Ophthalmologist’ and ‘Best Audiologist’ in the Health & Wellness categories of this year’s ‘Best of L.I. 2016’ 11th annual event. North Shore Eye Care was also among only a select number of local businesses and people to be nominated and win multiple awards in the Health & Wellness category.
“Long Island residents understand that the ‘Best of Long Island’ contest is the most professional and prestigious awards program on the island,” said eye surgeon, Jeffrey Martin, MD, Medical Director at North Shore Eye Care who made the announcement today. “Every employee and physician on staff at North Shore Eye Care considers it an extreme honor just to be nominated for being the best in your field. But to be recognized and win ‘Best of Long Island’ in three categories for the third consecutive year is truly humbling,” he said.
The ‘Best of Long Island’ contest is the largest business and professional awards program in the history of Long Island. It is conducted each year by the Long Island Press newspaper and includes voting by more than one million people across Long Island. The voting for ‘Best of Long Island’ runs from October 1st to December 15th, a 75-day voting window in which everyone can vote for their favorite physician, business person, local store or business they feel should hold a Best of Long Island title.
At the end of the voting period, the nominee with the most votes in each respective category is awarded the distinction of ‘Bethpage Best of Long Island 2016’ award. If a national company receives the most votes they will be awarded a national title and the local company with the most votes in that category will be awarded the ‘Bethpage Best of Long Island 2016’ distinction.
“To win the ‘Best LASIK Surgical Practice’ is a distinct honor because of the popularity of the procedure and the number of LASIK providers in the region,” said Dr. Martin. “Our new iDesign LASIK procedure is state-of-the-art and offers patients the potential to actually see better than 20/20 vision,” he said. This is the 3rd year in a row North Shore Eye Care has won ‘Best LASIK Surgery Practice.’
North Shore Eye Care also won the ‘Best Audiologist’ in the Health & Wellness category. Their audiologists include Amy Cavallo, MA/CCC-A, Theresa Dempsy, AuD., CCC-A and Gerri Competiello, AuD., F/AAA. “We’re very proud to win ‘Best Audiologist,’ said Dr. Martin. “Because many of the eye care services we offer deal with age-related medical procedures, it made perfect sense to add audiology to our comprehensive list of services,” he said. “Having the addition of audiology from the same trusted source and location as their eye care services is a tremendous convenience for our patients,” said Dr. Martin.
“Winning the ‘Best Ophthalmologist’ category is especially important to us,” said Dr. Martin. “Since my father Sidney Martin, MD founded North Shore Eye Care more than 50 years ago, all of the doctors and staff at North Shore Eye Care have strived to be the very best at what we do. So this award has special because it shows we are truly continuing his legacy of eye excellence. With a total of eight offices across Long Island, our team remains dedicated to maintaining the highest levels of patient care we have become known for and we are very pleased that our patients find our quality of care worthy of note.”
