HAUPPAUGE, N.Y. (PRWEB) October 03, 2018
SightMD (or the “Company”), a leading multi-specialty ophthalmology platform, today announced a strategic partnership with Lindenhurst Eye Physicians & Surgeons, P.C. (“Lindenhurst Eye”). The partnership further solidifies SightMD’s position as the leading eye care provider in Long Island, and adds its team of five ophthalmologists and two optometrists to the Company’s over 50 physicians.
Lindenhurst Eye was founded in 1986 by Richard Nattis, M.D. and offers a full suite of medical and surgical services, including laser cataract surgery, LASIK, treatment of corneal disorders, corneal transplants, pediatric ophthalmology, and treatment for retinal- and glaucoma-related conditions. Its five prominent board-certified physicians and two optometrists deliver care at four convenient locations in Long Island.
“Our team is delighted to partner with a rapidly-growing and physician-led organization such as SightMD,” said Dr. Nattis. “We were extremely deliberate about evaluating our alternatives, and ultimately found that SightMD’s patient-first approach to care and its track record of delivering the highest levels of clinical quality aligned with the culture my partners and I have built at Lindenhurst Eye over the last 34 years.”
Jeffrey Martin, M.D., a Founder of SightMD, remarked, “Dr. Nattis, along with his partners Jeffrey Nudelman, M.D., and Alanna Nattis, D.O., has built Lindenhurst Eye similar to SightMD – with a focus on delivering clinical excellence and accessibility to the community. It was evident from the start of our discussions that Lindenhurst Eye would be a seamless fit with SightMD, our over 50 physicians and over 250 dedicated clinical staff members.”
John Passarelli, M.D., a Founder of SightMD, added, “I have known Rich, Jeff and Alanna for over 30 years, allowing me to see first-hand their dedication to providing high quality care to patients within our community. I could not be more excited to welcome Lindenhurst Eye to the SightMD family.”
Patients and referring doctors should expect continued excellence in patient care by the Lindenhurst Eye physicians at each of its convenient Long Island locations.
