By The Associated Press

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

Please replace the release with the following corrected version due to multiple revisions.

The updated release reads:

(“EyeSouth” or the “Company”) is proud to celebrate the addition of 20 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 270 affiliated doctors in more than 155 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.”

EyeSouth and their affiliated practices welcome four glaucoma & cataract fellows, three retina fellows, two oculoplastic fellows, one pediatric fellow, four comprehensive ophthalmologists and six optometrists.

“Our success as a company is in large part due to our physician-led culture,” said Scott Bullock, the President of EyeSouth Partners. “As one of EyeSouth’s first executive leaders, our company was founded with a focus on our doctors, and I have personally welcomed nearly every doctor that we have hired since 2017. I am uniquely excited about our Class of 2022 given their numbers, their breadth of specialties, and their ability and willingness to help serve our patients and communities. This is one of the main reasons 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. 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 is physician-led organization and has 28 of its affiliate doctors participating in leadership or advisory roles, 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.

"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 glaucoma and cataract specialist 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.
