Akler Eye Center 10th Anniversary
Dear friends, patients and family,
This week I have reached a professional milestone. My solo ophthalmology practice Akler Eye Center is 10 years old.
Looking back, I am very proud of what has been accomplished in 10 years. Despite being told that opening up a practice in a saturated city was risky, perhaps bordering on foolish, I have been successful well beyond my expectations. During this time not only did I build a thriving practice focused on putting my relationship with the patient first; I have additionally served on a committee through a national organization, volunteered on a surgical mission overseas, and was a founding member of a new online global ophthalmology community called EyeConnect International.
I want to take a moment to pay tribute to the wonderful staff of Akler Eye, the backbone of our practice. Two of them, the incomparable Roxanna Martin and Kathy McCray have been with me since Akler Eye’s inception. They literally helped build the practice from the ground up, and were soon joined by Barbara Green our LASIK coordinator in 2012 and Correne Collett our receptionist and marketing coordinator in 2015. Rounded out by our biller Gladys Renye, I could not be prouder of this strong group of women who have held me up through so much including a global pandemic.
Of course Akler Eye would be nothing without you, our wonderful patients. Thank you so much for trusting me with your most precious sense, your vision. It is an honor to serve you and I look forward to doing so for many years to come.
I wish you and your families continued health and look forward to seeing you all in the clinic soon!
We at Akler Eye Center look forward to taking care of all of your eye care needs as we navigate this “new normal” together.
