Eye Health Center of Troy has been in existence for more than 55 years. Originally established by Dr. Anderson and Dr. McCarthy in 1958, the practice expanded to include Dr. Mark Levy in 1977. Dr. Levy retired in 2007 when I took over.
The last few years have been nothing but true blessing. I thoroughly enjoy my daily interactions with my patients and my staff. The support of the community has been tremendous. 2010 brought us a new office on Hoosick Street within a mile of our original office on 15th Street. With expanded space and services, we believe our patients will experience greater convenience.
Please navigate the website to find out more about me and my staff and feel free to email with any questions and concerns. I truly value any feedback and would try to incorporate any suggestions that would enrich your experience.
My undergraduate training was in the city of Lucknow in India. I majored in science and biology. I have been practicing ophthalmology since 1994. It all started in King George Medical School in Lucknow. In 1996, I immigrated to US with my family and attended Albany Medical College where I spent two years in basic science research. Here I was involved in researching drugs used to cure bacterial and fungal eye infections . I published extensively during this period.
Thereafter I resumed my career in clinical ophthalmology. I completed my ophthalmology residency at Albany Medical Center in 2005. I also trained as a fellow in pediatric ophthalmology. Ever since I landed in the US, I have been in the capital region of New York and have fallen in love with it.
My husband is a psychiatrist in private practice and we have a twelve year old son. I am very passionate about gardening and cooking. We also love to trek in the Adirondacks. I do have a calling to serve humans who live in societies that are not so technologically advanced. When I was in India I used to organize camps providing eye care to people living in rural communities, who had never had the opportunity to receive specialized eye care. I do plan to continue to do that and am looking for opportunities to provide care for peope living in latin America, such as Guatemala.
