Woolfson Eye Institute proudly announces its new Marietta/East Cobb office, located at the site of the former Wells Fargo bank on Sandy Plains Road, which will open in mid-November. Headquartered in Sandy Springs, Woolfson is largely known as one of the leading LASIK providers in the Southeast. Optometrists, ophthalmologists, and other healthcare professionals have been sending their own patients to Jonathan Woolfson, MD for LASIK and other vision correcting procedures for over 20 years. The practice ultimately evolved into a referral destination for patients in need of other types of eye care, as well, including cataract, cornea, retina, glaucoma, and dry eye.

“I couldn’t be more excited to be helping Woolfson Eye Institute open an office in Marietta/East Cobb and to finally bring all of our subspecialties and eye services to the Cobb community,” said Dr. Tom Spetalnick, one of the practice’s founding members. The Marietta office will be managed by Anne Mobley. Lauren Dyak, OD, and Gabriela Gutierrez, OD will provide optometric care to potential LASIK patients, with those deemed to be candidates for the procedure having surgery by Jonathan Woolfson, MD and by Eric Jennings, MD. Drs. Dyak and Gutierrez will also see keratoconus and dry eye patients and will work closely with Dr. Jennings, who will provide cataract surgery to patients seen in Marietta/East Cobb. Dr. Jennings will also provide services for cornea patients, with both cataract and cornea patients being offered the option of having surgery locally.

Other physicians providing care in the new Woolfson-Marietta/East Cobb office include Rabbea Janjua, MD, who will serve as the office’s retinal specialist, providing care for patients with diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, and other disorders of the retina. Jenna Yoder, DO will serve as the glaucoma specialist in the Marietta/ East Cobb office, with Victor Liou, MD seeing oculoplastic patients for any functional or cosmetic concerns related to their eyes or eyelids. Minor procedures will be performed in-office, while surgical procedures requiring general anesthesia will be performed at a nearby surgery center.WOOLFSON EYE INSTITUTE IS COMING TO MARIETTA 1

Founded by Jonathan Woolfson, MD and Dr. Spetalnick over 20 years ago, Woolfson Eye Institute has cared for an array of eye care needs, both surgical and medical. Adding to their services over the years, the practice has worked hard to bring in some of the most skilled surgeons in their respective fields, as well as highly trained optometrists.

One of the most unique features of the practice is its educational component. For nearly 20 years, they have been training the next generation of skilled optometric professionals through its internship programs offered to current optometry students, as well as specialized training for recent optometry school graduates enrolled in the Woolfson Optometric Residency Program. “We were approached years ago by the Southern College of Optometry in Memphis to partner with them to create a residency program training doctors in refractive and other ophthalmic surgeries, and it’s been a very successful and rewarding part of what we do,” Dr. Spetalnick said.

Opening this month, Woolfson Eye Institute’s Marietta /East Cobb location will be located at 2687 Sandy Plains Road near Sprayberry High School. Woolfson is simultaneously opening new locations in Canton and Snellville, as well. For more information, call 1-866-LASER22 or visit the website at www.woolfsoneye.com.
