Special Announcement from Dr. Carey Shifrin

Please join us in congratulating Dr. Carey Shifrin on her new role as Regional Director of Eyecare – West! 

Full Details & Transition of Dr. Shifrin’s Patients:

Dr. Carey Shifrin has accepted the director position with our growing network of practices. In her new role, Dr. Shifrin will work with multiple practices to ensure every patient receives the best quality in vision care possible. However, due to the demands of this position, Dr. Shifrin will not be seeing patients beginning March 1st, 2020.  Dr. Shifrin is available for questions and we are consulting with her on individual patient concerns to easily transition care to her colleagues who are taking over her schedule.  This was a rather quick transition that she was required to make and she regrets disappointing any of her longstanding patients with rather short notice.  Dr. Shifrin’s patients will now be cared for by Dr. Julienne Heene and Dr. Michelle Nadeau. She has full confidence in Dr. Heene and Dr. Nadeau and knows her patients will be in good hands under their care.

Please direct any questions or concerns to the Scottsdale office and we will be happy to assist.

Dr. Julienne Heene
