Florida Eye Microsurgical Institute Building New Facility

Florida Eye Microsurgical Institute, a fixture in Wellington since 2005, has broken ground and started construction on its new free-standing comprehensive eye practice, located at 2575 State Road 7, near the Mall at Wellington Green, behind Whole Foods Market and directly next to Diagnostic Centers of America. The 7,500-square-foot building will have three waiting rooms, 14 exam rooms and eight testing/treatment rooms.

More important, it will have physicians Lee Friedman, Randy Katz, Jason Gorscak and Barry Schechter delivering the same quality care and compassion Wellington residents have come to depend on.

The doctors are looking forward to watching their new home take shape. “We have simply outgrown our current space, and we need to be able to accommodate our patients as well as make room for the eye care needs of the growing Wellington community,” said Katz, the institute’s macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy specialist.

“We feel right at home in Wellington,” added Gorscak, a specialist cataracts, glaucoma and comprehensive ophthalmology. “We don’t just work here, we live here and have strong ties to the community.”

The institute, under construction by Anderson Moore, is expected to open its new doors late March 2014. Like the doctors, Florida Eye administrator Jason Feuer is also excited about the building. “This undertaking is not only an investment in the Wellington community, but will also offer additional local employment opportunities,” he said.

Florida Eye offers comprehensive eye care for the entire family and is a premier center for national clinical trial studies.

The institute offers a full range of eye care, including routine eye examinations, pediatric eye care, dry eyes, advanced corneal, retinal and cataract procedures, laser treatments, glaucoma and diabetic procedures and much more.

Florida Eye’s current Wellington location is at 1397 Medical Park Blvd., Suite 380. For more info., visit www.fleyedocs.com.
