January is a special time!! Dr Vazquez celebrates 🏼 years and our beloved Carlyn marked the big 5️⃣ years!!
It’s an honor and a privilege to do life alongside you dynamic ladies each day! So grateful to have you on our team! You make the lives of your patients and your teammates richer for your presence!
This was our first ever Angel Tree!
Preschool screening at a local Primrose Preschool.
Dr. Judson Briggs recently paid a friendly visit to our office to see our latest (and greatest!) “toy” in action! We recently added the #OptoMap camera to our ever growing list of tools to enhance our patient care.
This camera is special because it enables the doctors to capture an image of (nearly) the ENTIRE retina without having to be dilated!!!!! It’s a BIG DEAL, folks! Dr. Briggs was thinking about adding it to his own practice in Dunwoody and wanted to see how it worked for himself. We happily snapped our images and popped them up for review…
“Dr Briggs! You have a retinal detachment!” No need to explain to the DOCTOR how serious this is! He got lasered at Ga Retina the very next morning!
Retinal detachments are a big deal if they go undetected. There aren’t any pain receptors in your retina, so they can’t be felt, but some patients might experience some visual symptoms. Dr Briggs had NO IDEA his retina was torn and left unchecked might have come off without warning!!! If a retinal detachment isn’t repaired IMMEDIATELY the patient may never recover their vision!
Everyone was SO relieved when he sent word that his retina was saved! Needless to say, I think he’ll be adding it to his office! #optomapsavedtheday ask for your #optomap by name!
It was a shocking start to a happy ending!
As a thank you for buying the lunch for the office, we presented Mr Tim with the first of its kind, Huffman Eye Care Christmas ornament when he picked up his glasses this morning. He was such a good sport about our picture taking.
The best thing about private practice is the amazing relationships we build with wonderful patients over many years. Thank you so much to all of the wonderful patients who have made this office so special!!
Huffman Family Eye Care 10th Anniversary
We have the best patients! Miss Sally stopped by with flowers for Dr Vazquez as a thank you for a speedy diagnosis earlier this week that resulted in a sight-saving surgery. She got emergency surgery the same day!
“If it wasn’t for you, I would be blind in that eye now! Thank you so much!”
These are the moments that make our days so special!
