HAUPPAUGE, N.Y. (PRWEB) January 04, 2018
One of Riverhead’s leading independent optometric providers, Albert Marcantonio, OD has joined the rapidly expanding medical staff of SightMD, according to eye surgeon, Jeffrey Martin, MD, FACS, Chief Executive Officer of SightMD. Dr. Marcantonio was one of the most recognized optometrists in Riverhead during the past decade, where he practiced out of the local Costco at 1768 Old Country Road.
“We have been following Dr. Marcantonio’s optometric career for years,” said Dr. Martin, adding “which is why we were having him see patients for us part-time in our Smithtown office.” Dr. Martin pointed out that he and his partners were impressed with Dr. Marcantonio’s knowledge and expertise in co-managing their surgery patients and were excited to formally bring him on board full-time. “We could not be more pleased to finally welcome Dr. Marcantonio into our family of our care professionals here at SightMD.”
Because of his unique location within Costco, Dr. Marcantonio has become a familiar face for thousands of families in the greater Riverhead area during his optometric career. “I have loved every moment of practicing here in Riverhead and look forward to continuing our reputation of eye excellence with my new partners at SightMD,” Dr. Marcantonio said. “To join such a noted group of eye care professionals who share a common passion for delivering a seam-less level of high quality care between the ophthalmology industry and our optometric community is an absolute honor.”
Dr. Marcantonio earned his ‘Doctor of Optometry’ degree from Inter-American University and has been practicing optometry on Long Island since 2003. His primary role at SightMD will involve the pre and post-operative care of surgery patients and in providing routine comprehensive eye care for patients of all ages.
“As we continue to broaden our list of services, increase our medical staff and enhance patient access to world-class ophthalmic care across Long Island and New York, we are pleased to welcome Dr. Marcantonio to SightMD. After years of working closely together, we are fortunate to finally have him formally on our team,” said Dr. Martin.
