SightMD (or the “Company”), a leading multi-specialty ophthalmology platform and a portfolio company of Chicago Pacific Founders, today announced a strategic partnership with Mid Island Eye Physicians & Surgeons (“Mid Island Eye” or “MIE”). The partnership adds five physicians and one location in Bethpage, NY to SightMD’s team of over 50 physicians and 25 convenient locations in New York.
For more than 50 years, Mid Island Eye has been one of the Nassau County’s preeminent providers of comprehensive ophthalmic care, including laser cataract surgery, glaucoma services, and treatment for conditions affecting the cornea and retina. MIE’s physicians include Jordan Garelick, M.D., Ted Karl, M.D., Laurence Rubin, M.D., and Gregory Cowan, M.D.
“We could not be more thrilled to partner with Mid Island Eye, it’s talented physicians, and staff,” said Jeffrey Martin, M.D., a Founder of SightMD. “I have known Dr. Garelick, Dr. Karl, Dr. Rubin and Dr. Cowan for many years, and believe their clinically excellent practice and patient-first approach align well with SightMD.” John Passarelli, a Founder of SightMD, added, “We look forward to empowering MIE to continue its tradition of serving Nassau County with preeminent eyecare. Our full-service management services organization will enable MIE’s physicians to focus solely on delivering the highest-quality care to the community.”
Dr. Garelick said, “choosing a partner is one of the most critical decisions a practice can make. It was clear from the start of our discussions that the SightMD team knew what it took to take our practice to the next level, while preserving the culture and clinical focus MIE has demonstrated for over 50 years.”
