Board-certified surgeons bring extensive experience to leading specialty eye center

SouthEast Eye Specialists, a leading provider of medical and surgical eye care, today announced that the physicians and support teams of Complete Eye Care, a premier eye care practice with locations in Soddy Daisy and Dayton, Tennessee, will be joining SouthEast Eye Specialists.

Dr. JD Bonner and Dr. Will Whitmire will continue to provide the highest level of service to patients at both the Soddy Daisy and Dayton locations. Dr. J.D. Bonner, a board-certified ophthalmologist, received his medical degree from the University of South Alabama. He then completed a four-year ophthalmology residency at the University of Tennessee in Chattanooga.

“Our practice has always been committed to providing patients and their families with compassionate, ethical eye care,” says Dr. Bonner. “However, as the business of healthcare continues to grow in complexity, I find myself being pulled away from direct patient care, spending more time on business-related items like human resources, compliance, and accounting. This partnership will allow me to personally spend more time with patients, while leveraging the impressive infrastructure of SouthEast Eye Specialists to run the day-to-day business.”

A native of the Chattanooga area, Dr. Whitmire attended McCallie school, received his medical degree from the Medical College of Georgia, and completed his internship at the University of Tennessee in Chattanooga and an Ophthalmology Residency at Texas A&M College of Medicine.

“Serving patients in rural communities as part of the SouthEast Eye Specialists network aligns with our mission to help patients attain their best possible vision and eye health,” says Dr. Whitmire. “We are beyond pleased to be welcomed into a network that puts patients and their quality of care first.”

“We’re committed and passionate about providing patients in Tennessee with the highest quality of care and adding leading practitioners like Dr. Bonner and Dr. Whitmire to our expanding medical staff is further proof of our commitment,” says Dr. Daryl Mann, Chief Clinical Officer, SouthEast Eye Specialists. “We’re thrilled and fortunate to have both doctors and the entire team at Complete Eye Care on board. The Soddy Daisy and Dayton locations will be seamlessly integrated into our network as we continue to build on our vision of providing quality secondary eye care to patients in a convenient and comfortable location near where they live.”
