At Columbus Ophthalmology Associates, we value family. We love to hear about our patients’ families and see how they grow and change through the years. We also love to share when our COA family grows and changes. And we have a few new (and tiny!) additions to our COA family that we are over-the-moon excited to introduce to you!

Dr. Orlando welcomed his first grandchild on February 22, 2017. Little Samantha Rose stole Dr. Orlando’s heart at first sight and is the joy of his life. You can see it when he tells stories about how they hang out together watching ball games or in how his eyes light up when he talks about her. Dr. Orlando says, “She’s very laid back and alert, like her mother, my daughter Kristen.” Samantha Rose is named after Dr. Orlando’s father, Big Sam. So now, the Orlando family proudly has an adorable “Little Sam” as Big Sam’s namesake. As you can see in the photo below, distance can’t separate Big Sam from Little Sam. They often enjoy getting to know each other through FaceTime 🙂

On March 12th, Dr. Hickey welcomed his 4th grandbaby into the world. However, this one is special because it is his first granddaughter. Miss Anna Elaine is soaking up all of the attention and is quite the little Queen.

Congratulations to Dr. Orlando and Dr. Hickey on the new little angels in their families. We’re so proud to work with them and to see their families growing!
