Vision Care Specialists announced that Denver eye-care firm Englewood Eyecare has become the latest member of the Vision Care Specialists' family. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Englewood Eyecare was founded by David J. Newman, OD, a Denver optometrist who's been in private practice for more than 30 years.
"Having Dr. Newman and his staff join the VCS family creates great symmetry for our expanding company and for the Englewood community," Vision Care Specialists chief executive officer Jeff Poe, said in a news release. "As part of a larger network, Dr. Newman will have access to more resources and be able to serve Englewood's growing community. His long-term stability and success in Denver make him and his practice a great fit for the Vision Care Specialists' family."
Dr. Newman and his staff, including optician Nikky Roberts, will continue to provide vision care and personalized optometric service to patients at their office at 850 Englewood Pkwy Suite 100A. This location will become the seventh in the Vision Care Specialists group, which also includes offices in Aurora, Highlands Ranch, Lakewood, Parker, University Hills, and downtown Denver.
In joining Vision Care Specialists, Dr. Newman becomes part of Denver's leading group of eye-care doctors, who've been providing cutting-edge optometry services in Colorado for more than forty years.
A Southern California College of Optometry graduate, Dr. Newman says he is looking forward to working with Poe's team. In joining the VCS family Dr. Newman joins two of his Southern California College of Optometry class mates Dr. Gerlock and Dr. Roberson.
"I'm thrilled about the opportunity to join such an illustrious practice," said Dr. Newman. "This is a perfect fit for Nikky and I, since Jeff Poe and his team share our vision of making patient care our top priority. Their large network of doctors and staff will help us offer even more services to our patients."
Founded in 1974, Vision Care Specialists has earned a reputation for making a difference in its patients' lives. While many eye-care practices have followed the industry trend of private equity buyouts or have joined franchises and hospital-owned physician groups to gain advantages of scale, Vision Care Specialists believes strongly in physician-defined standards of care. That dedication to an independent medical practice model allows investment in state-of-the-art technologies; in 2014, it became the first private group of surgeons in Denver to offer laser cataract procedures.
