Duke Medical Minutes are produced by local sports radio affiliates, and allow Duke specialists to give a brief snapshot into health offerings at Duke.
In this episode, Terry Kim, MD, discusses what sets Duke Eye Center apart from other eye centers.
Announcer: We're talking to Dr. Terry Kim, professor of ophthalmology and associate director of cornea and refractive surgery service at Duke Eye Center.
Duke Eye Center has several locations throughout the state. Now they're opening up a new office off of Page Road -- August 29 -- right in the heart of the Triangle.
What makes Duke Eye Center different?
Kim: Well, Duke Eye Center has been here over 30 years and we've consistently been ranked in the top 10 eye center of any ranking that you look at and I think there are a number of reasons for this.
We provide outstanding clinical care and we do this not only at the main Eye Center on Erwin Road, but now also at our satellites in Raleigh, Cary, and Winston-Salem as well. But our new Page Road clinic will be a very important part of continuing this goal of patient care excellence.
In addition, we do a lot of research here, which I think is important for the future of eye care, and we're also very active in teaching -- whether that's on the technician level, or the physician level, or the other eye care provider level.
All of our ophthalmologists that are specialists are fellowship trained and all of our ophthalmologists in general are board certified. And also our staff are outstanding and second to none. I think you'll notice that as soon as you walk in to any of our facilities.
