Baltimore, MD (1888PressRelease) July 17, 2012 - Baltimore Washington Eye Center is pleased to announce that it has achieved a new milestone serving the eye care needs of patients throughout the region. "On June 28, 2012 we officially registered patient number 100,000 into our electronic medical records system-a real growth milestone that speaks to our dedication and longevity in providing routine eye health and vision care as well as care for eye diseases and eye surgery in our community," reported Phillip Harrington, Baltimore Washington Eye Center Administrator.
"We have worked diligently since 1969 to create a comprehensive eye care center that incorporates the full range of ophthalmology services. Whether patients need routine eye exams for adults or children, diagnosis and treatment of cataracts with cataract surgery and lens implants, LASIK or laser eye surgery for vision correction or the diagnosis and treatment of diabetic retinopathy, age related macular degeneration or glaucoma-we have the expertise, experience and skilled staff to provide personalized, compassionate and quality care right here in our facility," said Baltimore Washington Eye Center Medical Director Arturo Betancourt, M.D.
"Patients visiting us for the first time routinely comment about the convenience and customer service approach we offer in two particular areas-our optical center for eyeglasses and eyewear-and the Baltimore Washington Eye Surgery Center, our on-site surgery center that is fully certified by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) and Medicare licensed. Safe, successful and convenient eye surgery is our top priority," explained Brad Spagnolo, M.D., Director of Refractive Services.
"Reaching the 100,000 registered patient milestone is certainly rewarding for our team. Moreover, it confirms for us that our direction, dedication and decisions have been recognized by the patients we are here to serve-we say "thank you" to our community for their support," remarked Dr. Betancourt.
