Metro Detroit-based ophthalmology platform adds leading laser eye care center to its growing network of Michigan partners
BINGHAM FARMS, Mich.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sunvera Group, a management services organization providing support services to ophthalmology practices across multiple subspecialties, has formed a new partnership with William S. Goldstein, MD PC in Shelby Township. This partnership further expands Sunvera’s network of ophthalmology and surgical centers across Michigan and Ohio.
The Laser Eye Care Center is operated by Dr. William Goldstein who has practiced ophthalmology since 1994 and was among the first doctors to perform LASIK eye surgery in the state of Michigan. Dr. Goldstein is also one of a small number of select and highly skilled surgeons in the country who offers the most modern form of cataract surgery with a “no-stitch” incision.
While the Laser Eye Care Center specializes in laser eye surgeries for a spectrum of vision problems, the doctors also offer comprehensive eye care, treating conditions like cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic eye disease and macular degeneration.
“Our team of eye care specialists create positive patient experiences and outcomes with every interaction,” said Dr. Goldstein. “We’re looking forward to partnering with Sunvera Group and will continue our commitment to service and our strong reputation as leaders in ophthalmology.”
Goldstein is the recipient of two patient care awards: the Joseph Wahlers Award for Excellence in Patient Care and the H. Saul Sugar Award for Education in Ophthalmology. He was also recently selected as one of “America’s Top Ophthalmologists” by the Consumers’ Research Council of America.
“By growing our network with experienced eye care specialists like Dr. Goldstein and his team, we further solidify our commitment to expanding patient access to quality eye care in the communities we serve,” said Sunvera Group CEO Greg Nodland. “We’re excited about this partnership and the tremendous dedication and passion for patient care that Dr. Goldstein shares with us.”
Sunvera Group is a portfolio company of Ridgemont Equity Partners. McDermott Will & Emery provided legal services to Sunvera. SVB Securities served as the exclusive financial advisor to Laser Eye Care Center and Howard & Howard provided legal services.
