I am writing to inform you that after 43 years, I am retiring from active practice and my last day at Ophthalmic Partners will be April 29, 2022. Many of you have been with me through these many years and have shared life events and experiences. It has been an honor to be entrusted with your care and the care of your loved ones.
My partners, Richard Tipperman, M.D. and Katie Schrack, M.D. will be taking primary responsibility for the transition and continuation of care. If you have not met Dr. Schrack, she attended Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, where she obtained her medical degree in 2007. After medical school, she completed her transitional medicine internship at Crozer Chester Medical Center, where she was named Intern of the Year. During her residency in ophthalmology at Temple University Hospital, she similarly distinguished herself as Chief Resident.
Dr. Schrack concluded her training with a fellowship in cornea and anterior segment under the direction of Ophthalmic Partners physicians Dr. Brandon Ayres and Dr. Irving Raber at Wills Eye Hospital. Her medical and surgical abilities were so outstanding that in 2015 Drs. Ayres and Raber invited her to join us at Ophthalmic Partners. She practices comprehensive ophthalmology with specific expertise in cataract and corneal surgery.
If you prefer to continue your care with a doctor outside of Ophthalmic Partners, you may contact the Pennsylvania medical society to obtain a list of ophthalmologists in the area or your insurance company for those who accept your insurance. To protect the confidentiality of your medical records, please provide written authorization for us to send a copy of your records to your new ophthalmologist.
Wishing you good health and happiness in the future.
