Michael Do, OD earns the “Young Optometrist of the Year” Award
MARIETTA, GA December 17, 2018 – Marietta Eye Clinic, one of Georgia’s largest and most comprehensive eye care practices, is pleased to announce the latest achievement earned by one of the practice’s talented providers. Recently, the Georgia Optometric Association (GOA) awarded Michael Do, O.D. the 2018 “Young Optometrist of the Year” Award.
The Georgia Optometric Association’s history dates back to July 14, 1904, when the organization chartered as the Georgia Optical Association. The association has worked through the years to formalize the profession of optometry in the state of Georgia and has secured key legislation strengthening the profession in the state and ensuring high-quality care to patients. According to the GOA, the organization is “committed to providing doctors of optometry in Georgia with the information and resources they need so they can better care for their patients.”
The Marietta Eye Clinic is proud of how involved Dr. Do is in this important professional organization. Dr. Do has proven to be a leader in optometry and received this award for many reasons. He currently serves as the GOA’s 5th district president, Board of Trustees member, and co-chair of the Young O.D. committee. He works diligently to increase the involvement of the younger optometrists with the association. Additionally, he is a member of the Young O.D. Emerging Leaders group with GOA-PAC and participates in Optometry’s Day at the Capitol each year.
“Dr. Do sets himself apart every day in the care he provides patients and his devotion to the profession of optometry and the Marietta Eye Clinic,” said Byron Long, M.D., managing partner of the Marietta Eye Clinic. “Our patients come back year after year because of doctors like Michael Do. We are proud to have him on the team.”
The Marietta Eye Clinic continues to grow, adding three new optometrists in 2018 alone. Sue Fitzpatrick, CEO of the Marietta Eye Clinic, attributes this to the professionalism of the providers at this thriving practice. “We have a team of medical doctors, surgeons, and optometrists that is the envy of eye groups across the country. This team supports each other daily in every way possible and this makes it easy for me to attract and retain providers of the caliber of Michael Do. It is truly an exciting time at the Marietta Eye Clinic.”
