We’re Excited to Write You About New Developments in Our Practice Occurring in Early 2019
Dr. Fante was elected to the presidential track of ASOPRS (American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery). He is currently Vice-President, and will be President in 2021. He continues to teach around the world, and will be Visiting Professor at University of Michigan in July. Dr. Fante is entering his sixth year on the board and committees of OMIC (Ophthalmic Mutual Insurance Company), helping to protect physician and patient interests, and defend insured ophthalmologists and optometrists from medical malpractice claims. Dr. Fante has served on the Claims, Finance, Underwriting, and Risk Management committees. Dr. Fante has been the Editor-in-Chief for the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) Oculofacial Plastic Surgery Knowledge Center since its inception in 2015, and is leading its current expansion. You can freely access peer-reviewed articles on almost every topic in oculofacial plastic surgery at aao.org/oculoplastics-center
In the December 2018 issue of Ophthalmology, Dr. Fante published a report on OMIC’s indemnity experience with oculofacial plastic surgery claims over an 11 year period, noting an interesting difference in the outcomes of cases involving alleged medical error versus those with cosmetic complaints. This article is available at AAOjournal.org. Dr. Hawes continues to be a caring and positive member of our team. He recently published another book chapter on eyelid reconstruction, the subject of his 2009 Wendell Hughes Lecture for the AAO.
DR. TARA GOECKS
Thanks to our success in providing top-notch, academically oriented, compassionate, and supportive patient care, we are adding another expert physician to our team later this year. Look for more details about Dr. Tara Goecks over the next several months. She is a delightful physician who was surgically trained in Tennessee at Vanderbilt University and UT Memphis, under the tutelage of Dr. Ralph Wesley and Dr. Chris Fleming, two prior presidents of ASOPRS. She served in the Peace Corps in Burkina Faso, Africa, and has been involved in medical service projects in Tanzania, Ethiopia, and Panama. We look forward to continuing to take great care of your patients. Thank you for trusting us.
