Gordon Eye Surgery has established a new facility which has been purpose built to increase efficiency for practitioners and change the patient experience.
The Gordon Eye Surgery is one of the largest privately owned ophthalmology practices in New South Wales incorporating sub specialties of glaucoma, cataract, macula, retina, neuro-ophthalmology, strabismus and paediatric ophthalmology.
With the specific needs of 14 doctors and 33 staff to be catered to, practice manager Donna Glenn said plans for the new facility had taken two years to finalise.
“We’re a big practice and so the aim was to maximise efficiency with new technology and by reducing the footprint for both specialists and patients,” said Ms. Glenn. “We’ve tried to make the patient experience more intimate – patients now feel as if they are coming into their own doctor’s clinic. We’ve also been able to reduce waiting times and improve patient flow.”
The practice, which comprises 14 consulting rooms, a treatment room for minor procedures and four other treatment/diagnostic rooms was officially opened by Kur-ing-gai Mayor Jennifer Anderson in late May.
