MARIETTA, GA October 15, 2018 – Marietta Eye Clinic, one of Georgia’s largest and most comprehensive eye care practices, is pleased to announce the transition of a key leadership position, President and Managing Partner, from Dr. Robert Wener to Dr. Byron Long.
Dr. Wener has served as the Managing Partner for five years, overseeing tremendous growth in services provided, number of providers, and in numbers of patients receiving high-quality ophthalmology and optometry services from the Marietta Eye Clinic.
“Serving the communities around our nine office locations has been an absolute joy and privilege,” indicated Dr. Wener. “I could not think of a more satisfying experience professionally than seeing how this group practice has taken on the challenge of providing high-quality health care to a growing metro-Atlanta and North Georgia population. I am proud of this organization and what the providers and staff do for our patients every day.”
Dr. Long is an oculoplastic surgeon and board-certified ophthalmologist who has been with the Marietta Eye Clinic for 17 years and has served on the board of directors for 14 years. Dr. Long graduated from the Pamplin School of Business at Virginia Tech before going to medical school and residency at the Medical College of Virginia. He also completed an Oculoplastic Fellowship at Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia prior to joining the Marietta Eye Clinic.
“I am humbled by the opportunity to provide strategic leadership to this great team and this very successful practice,” said Dr. Long. “I have always felt a strong call to business leadership in addition to serving my community through the practice of medicine. This position, on top of continuing my surgery practice, will really enable me to express both of those gifts and passions.”
