DOVS Celebrates Clinic Consolidation and Renovation

News // Patient Care // Nov 01 2021

UW Health Ophthalmology and UW Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences (DOVS)  celebrated a new chapter in patient care with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at UW Health University Station Eye Clinic in Madison, Wisconsin, on October 7, 2021.

Terri Young, MD, MBA, department chair, Robert Golden, MD, dean, UW School of Medicine and Public Health, and Kimberly Stepien, MD, co-vice chair of clinical affairs, delivered remarks. The three were joined by Amy Walker, OD, co-vice chair of clinical affairs, and Mark Lucarelli, MD, medical director of University Station Eye Clinic, for the official ribbon cutting.

The University Station Eye Clinic expansion and corresponding consolidations will expand our ophthalmology, optometry and optical service footprints to improve our overall patient, provider and staff experiences.

Increased benefits at University Station include:

  • A newly remodeled and enlarged Optical Shop with an increased frame selection and expanded appointment availability
  • A dedicated space for all Retina service patients on the 1st floor
  • Imaging services embedded within the Retina and Uveitis service areas, along with increased imaging services offered throughout the building
  • An increase in same-day available eye appointments
  • A user-friendly layout and wayfinding

UW Health Deming Way Eye Clinic in Middleton will continue to serve as the west side hub, and UW Health East Eye Clinic in Sun Prairie will continue to serve as the east side hub.

Judging by the reviews of tourists, the Sol Tenerife 4 * hotel in Playa de las Américas is quite popular among our compatriots. An excellent beach in front of the hotel, excellent cuisine, well-groomed territory, many services for children, cafes and shops. There are noisy streets nearby, so you need to choose your room carefully. The Los Cardones budget apartment complex in Playa de las Américas has received its share of the negative, although the reviews are generally good. Vacationers complained about insufficient cleanliness, old furniture, sometimes unsanitary conditions in the rooms, problems with hot water, indifferent behavior of the staff, attempts to steal were recorded. Obviously, the hotel is designed for a very unassuming tourist.
