Our EMG Doctors
In 1987, three Maine eye physicians and surgeons-Elizabeth Serrage, M.D., William Holt, M.D. and Bruce Cassidy, M.D., shared a vision of bringing world-class eye care and eye surgery to Maine and northern New England. They quickly recognized that to establish a world-class Center of Excellence would require the synergy of their combined efforts working toward that goal. Thus, they combined their individual practices and embarked upon a journey dedicated to providing the best routine and specialized eye care services by:
- Selecting a group of handpicked board-certified Ophthalmologists- all fellowship-trained in their subspecialty areas of expertise and practice-to join them in Portland. The Eyecare Medical Group physician team includes specialists in cataracts, cataract surgery & lens implants, refractive surgery, vitreoretinal diseases, and retina surgery, corneal diseases and surgery, glaucoma and reconstructive and cosmetic eye plastic surgery. Each Eyecare Medical Group physician is chosen based on shared values, patient care excellence and compassion.
- Making a commitment to always be seeking out and evaluating advances in technology, surgery procedures and techniques and then bringing the best of those innovations to Maine to become part of the Eyecare Medical Group daily practice pattern, right in Portland.
- Creating, and always upgrading, world-class patient care facilities including not simply modern comfortable examination, testing and treatment areas-but a convenient, close to home, Medicare-certified AAAHC (Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care) accredited Maine eye surgery center.
Through this dedication and commitment to excellence in eye care for Maine and northern New England, we are confident that allowing us the privilege and opportunity to assist you in maintaining your eye health and vision will be a worthwhile experience. As we go forward, some of our founders have selected a path of choosing to enjoy their senior years in different venues with family and friends and doing the things they have waited a lifetime to pursue. We are constantly reminded of their values and dedication and welcome the future generations of world-class eye physicians and surgeons who join the Eyecare Medical Group team to continue with your care.
