An Important Notification to Our Patient Family
Exciting Changes in 2017!
Seasons Greetings to our patient family from all of us at Complete EyeCare Center. We are very grateful for you and your patronage and want to share some very exciting and impactful news.
From the time I first opened my practice I have tried to offer the very best to my patients and so our eye treatment strategies and technology have continually improved. On multiple occasions we introduced new diagnostic instruments before anyone else in Iowa (including the University) had it available for patient care.
Now there are many surgical treatments and injection therapies that have become necessary for patients to maintain or improve their sight. They have not been available in Mount Pleasant and our patients have been inconvenienced by the necessity to travel to Iowa City or Cedar Rapids for recurrent treatments.
Beginning in January this will no longer be necessary. We are happy to announce the merger of our office with Eye Physicians and Surgeons, LLP of Iowa City. Many of you have already met Dr. Chris Watts and Dr. Alex Cohen for surgical care. Dr. Luke Wendel, a retinal specialist, and I will be joining their group practice in January. Both Dr. Wendel and I will be seeing patients in Mount Pleasant. Dr. Wendel will be providing macular degeneration injections and treatments that have never before been available in our home community. Other surgical services will also be provided locally by EPS.
Though we now truly will be providing complete eye care, Complete EyeCare Center will be renamed Eye Physicians and Surgeons after January 2, 2017.
Again, I’m still seeing patients and your past health records will remain available in the Mount Pleasant office location. Eye Physicians and Surgeons will be the new custodian of these records. I look forward to seeing you again, but if you would like the information transferred to a different practitioner, please let us know in writing by March 31, 2017.
I am thrilled for you, our patients, to have close and convenient access to such exceptional eye care, and also that I and our staff can be a part of this amazing team. We feel very blessed and wish you all Peace this Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Christopher P. Olson, OD, FAAO
