Kellogg eye surgeons can now offer a high level of specialty eye care outside of the main location in Ann Arbor, bringing care closer to the patients who need it at the newly opened Michigan Medicine’s Brighton Center for Specialty Care. Brighton joins West Ann Arbor, Northville, Canton, Briarwood, and Chelsea as community locations where Michigan Medicine has integrated multi-specialty clinics. Kellogg also has two ophthalmology-only offices offering specialty eye care in Milford and East Huron River Drive (Ypsilanti). Patients no longer need to travel so far to receive multispecialty eye care.
“Because of our expanded footprint, we are able to offer more patients easier and timelier access to specialty eye care,” says Shivani Kamat, MD, a clinical instructor of ophthalmology and visual sciences, the medical director at the Brighton facility.
The Brighton clinic offers minimally invasive eye surgery, complex eye procedures, and laser technology. Kellogg ophthalmologists at the facility include those who specialize in cornea and refractive surgery, glaucoma, retina, pediatrics, and oculoplastics.
“We have added physicians and have a large, state-of-the-art clinic that houses all the diagnostic and therapeutic tools that patients may need,” says Dr. Kamat.
“We have many patients with transportation issues,” says Joshua P. Vrabec, MD, clinical assistant professor of ophthalmology and visual sciences, who practices at the Northville Health Center. “Our patients are much happier with local services.”
