Why Choose Us
At the Shepherd Eye Center, we have 16 doctors (14 ophthalmologists, medical MD’s for the eyes, and two optometrists) and approximately 170 staff members. Not only are our doctors some of the most qualified and caring physicians in the entire region, but we also pride ourselves in the highest level of technician training available.
Each year we provide continuing medical education certified by JCAHPO and we excel in daily and weekly training programs for our techs which in turn provides the most qualified staff to attend to our patients. Extensive training in ophthalmic testing and exams prepares our employees to pass their Certified Ophthalmic Assisting (COA) or Certified Ophthalmic Technician (COT) qualification tests.
Our surgery staff includes highly-trained registered nurses, scrub techs, and support staff who maintain the highest standards in the industry with the only AAAHC certified surgery center in the state of Nevada.
Our Optical Shop
In our optical shop, a licensed optician is always available to take responsibility for filling prescriptions for glasses. All our optical staff are up-to-date on the latest technology and advancements in eye wear.
Hassle Free Accounting
Our accounting, insurance, and billing specialists can help make insurance coverage as easy and pain free as possible. In our efforts to become the first ophthalmology office in Nevada to go “paperless” with completely electronic medical records, we support an experienced Management Information Systems (MIS) staff who work hard to make Shepherd Eye Center leaders in efficient computer technology. But more than anything, you’ll find “people who care.” The patient comes first and we strive hard to keep it that way.
