During this unprecedented time with COVID-19, Columbus Ophthalmology Associates is proud to be a leader in our community. As a practice, we take safety and excellence in eye care seriously. We recently sat down with COA President, Dr. Robert Derick, to talk to him about COA’s newest safety measures and what phase 2 of reopening entails.
After many weeks following Ohio’s Stay-At-Home Order, we are looking forward to welcoming you back to our offices. However, health and safety are still our primary concerns. To best protect you and our team, we are implementing several new safety protocols. Please be aware of the following:
Dr. Charles Hickey grew up in Parma, Ohio. He majored in chemistry at The Ohio State University before graduating from OSU’s College of Medicine in 1979. After his internship at Riverside Methodist Hospital, he returned to Ohio State to complete his residency in ophthalmology at The Havener Eye Institute.
Did you know that it’s World Optometry Week? And, at Columbus Ophthalmology Associates, we’re celebrating optometrists for all their incredible work! Today, we’re paying tribute to COA’s Director of Optometry, Dr. Dawn Hartman. A leader and educator for the next generation of optometry students, she is a wonderful doctor who we are proud to have on our COA team.
With everything going on around us, it’s more important than ever to celebrate the unsung heroes who help make our world a better place. Today, we’re paying tribute to Denise Allen, our longest serving employee who is celebrating more than 30 years at COA! We recently sat down with Denise to find out more about her experiences at our practice.
