After more than two decades of setting new standards in pediatric ophthalmology across New York, leading eye surgeon James M. Doyle, MD has chosen North Shore Eye Care and pediatric ophthalmologist Nechama Shoshani, MD to continue his legacy of care as he retires from the practice of medicine, according to Jeffrey Martin, MD, CEO of SightMD and Managing Partner of North Shore Eye Care.
“Dr. Doyle was among the most renowned pediatric ophthalmologists not only in the greater New York area, but across the tri-state area and as far away as Texas,” said Dr. Martin. “It was not unusual for patients from as far east as Montauk and as far west as Texas to fly into New York to see Dr. Doyle. It is an honor for North Shore Eye Care to continue his legacy in pediatric ophthalmology as one of our SightMD providers,” he said.
Dr. Martin was quick to point out, however, that pediatric ophthalmologist Nechama ‘Mina’ Shoshani, MD has now joined North Shore Eye Care a division of SightMD and will practice out of Dr. Doyle’s former practice located at 119 Park Avenue, Suite 208. Rockville Centre, NY 11570. “We could not have found a more qualified, personable and professional physician to continue the tradition of eye care excellence that Dr. Doyle established during his career,” said Dr. Martin. “Dr. Shoshani is Fellowship-trained in both pediatrics and adult strabismus, has conducted extensive research and published numerous articles in peer-reviewed journals. We think she is the perfect fit for our new Rockville Centre location.”
Prior to joining North Shore Eye Care a division of SightMD, Dr. Shoshani was practicing in Yorktown Heights and was affiliated with Montefiore Medical Center. She received her medical degree from Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University and has been practicing for nearly 10 years. She completed her fellowship in pediatric ophthalmology and adult strabismus at the Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx and is board-certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology.
“Joining North Shore Eye Care and continuing Dr. Doyle’s legacy is a tremendous opportunity for me,” said Dr. Shoshani. “I know that all of the physicians at North Shore Eye Care and SightMD are committed to unsurpassed patient care and leading edge technology, so I feel honored to be part of this comprehensive eye care team.”
