EyeSouth Partners Celebrates Largest Incoming Doctor Class Since Its Founding in 2017

By The Associated Press

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 22, 2022--

(“EyeSouth” or the “Company”) is proud to celebrate the addition of 19 incoming doctors to their affiliate practices during the fourth quarter of 2022, the largest doctor class introduced since its formation in 2017. All of the doctors are additive to pre-existing EyeSouth Partners affiliates who have been in network since EyeSouth’s inception, found through the company’s strategic recruiting efforts. EyeSouth Partners has steadily become the largest comprehensive ophthalmology platform in North America, with nearly one million patient visits in a year and an industry leading doctor retention rate.

“With the ever-increasing number of Americans requiring critical eyecare, our society and EyeSouth needs to continue to grow by adding more highly qualified doctors to treat America’s rising number of eyecare patients,” said Rex Adams, Chief Executive Officer at EyeSouth Partners. “EyeSouth has more than 250 affiliated doctors in more than 150 locations throughout the country and I look forward to our continued growth and ability to hire even more qualified doctors in the years to come.”

The following doctors at the following EyeSouth affiliate practices will be joining their respective teams before the end of 2022:

“Our success as a company is in large part due to our physician-led culture,” said Scott Bullock, the President of EyeSouth Partners. “Our company was founded by doctors and its decisions are led by our doctors, many of which have at one point, or another worked for our various affiliates. I spent seven years at Georgia Eye Partners before co-founding EyeSouth. There is a reason we have best in class results amongst our competitors and expect continued growth as we attract top talent.”

“Doctors are welcomed into EyeSouth Partners as they would be welcomed into a new family,” said Dr. Dr. Eugene Gabianelli, Co-founder of EyeSouth Partners and Georgia Eye Partners. “We created EyeSouth Partners in hopes of building an ecosystem which would allow doctors at all career stages to have the resources needed to thrive. It’s satisfying to see how far the company has come already and to see so many new, talented doctors joining the teams of our various affiliates.”

EyeSouth Partners not only has eight doctors on its board of directors, but three clinical advisory boards for 28 of its affiliate doctors to participate on, including a physician board, optometry board and junior physician board, representing doctors across every geography. The 98 percent retention rate of its ophthalmologists and a 97 percent retention rate amongst optometrists speaks volumes about the company’s unique culture. Additionally, 80 percent of doctor hires have been from internal referrals and 91 percent of referring doctors to EyeSouth Partners affiliates have reported being either extremely or very satisfied with its doctors’ care.

"As a physician with a deep background in research and education, I value MidWest Eye Center's affiliation with EyeSouth Partners," said Dr. Kristen Mendoza, a new ophthalmologist at EyeSouth Partners’ affiliate, MidWest Eye Center in Cincinnati, OH. "EyeSouth continually prioritizes and promotes new research and advancements in the industry so that all of the doctors in network can offer our patients the latest and greatest in technology to deliver the best care. They make it easier to stay in the know and collaborate with my peers in the field."

“Although I am one of the newest doctors on the EyeCare Associates team, I am more than confident in EyeSouth’s ability to ensure the continued success of our local practice,” said Dr. Barry Leader, a new ophthalmologist at EyeSouth Partners affiliate, EyeCare Associates in New Orleans, LA. “With the resources they provide EyeCare Associates, we can see more patients at the practice level and rest assured knowing that our opinions are not only valued but implemented in the company’s overall vision and plans.”

“Our practice is pleased to be joining EyeSouth Partners and gain from their extensive network of resources,” said Dr. Erik Johnson, an ophthalmologist at EyeSouth Partners’ newest affiliate, Raleigh Ophthalmology in Raleigh, NC. “The support EyeSouth provides our doctors and patients will help us continue our more than 40-year legacy of exceptional medical care while also elevating that care in the years to come.”
