Patients often ask how we are doing now as of Madison Medical Affiliates. We were an independent ophthalmology/optometry practice for over 25 years at the time of the merger so it certainly is a valid question! Just two short years ago all the doctors at what was known as Lakeshore Eye Care Professionals did join Madison Medical Affiliates. We can assure you that the transition was very smooth even at the start. We were able to remain in both our Mequon and Saukville offices, our phone numbers were unchanged and, most importantly, we were able to continue to provide you with the most advanced medical and surgical eye care available.
What did change is now we are part of a multi-specialty group that for over 100 years has been been providing high quality health care in the Milwaukee area. Madison Medical Affiliates now have more than 50 physicians in 12 specialties and 8 locations. Don’t make the mistake of thinking they have anything to do with Madison, Wisconsin however! The practice was started in Milwaukee by Dr. J.D. Madison in 1903 and he was later joined by his nephew, Fred Madison. The rest is history.
What also changed is now we have more doctors. Dr. Lisa Bennett joined us in August and quickly became an integral member of our team. Like myself, she M.D./Ophthalmologist who is an accomplished cataract and LASIK surgeon. She manages patients with all types of medical and surgical eye problems like dry eyes, macular degeneration, glaucoma and more. Dr. James Ivanoski rounds out our team. He is an Optometrist specializing in comprehensive eye care for the whole family with a particular interest in hard-to-fit contact lens patients.
We are very grateful to you, our patients, for your tremendous support over the years and look forward to another great year in 2020 and beyond. See you soon!
