What Our Residents Say...

“I still remember our welcome breakfast as if it were yesterday,” Nate Simmons, M.D., said. “There have been innumerable changes throughout my residency, but the single consistency has been the wonderful team of co-workers. During my interview, Dr. Feldon and Dr. Hammond sold me on the family atmosphere and supportive culture of Flaum, and they could not have been more accurate. I am forever grateful to have had the opportunity to learn and grow and want to thank everyone for the teaching, patience, mentorship, dedication, and laughter.”

“Even as a medical student coming in for an away rotation, I was quickly able to see how close-knit the family at Flaum Eye Institute was,” Alyse Richard, M.D., said. “It was a major factor in solidifying my choice to come here for residency. This place will always hold a special space in my heart. I will miss all of you and am sad to be leaving such an intelligent, resilient and wonderful group of people.”
