How an eye doctor learned to become a cancer patient.
When a field of medicine goes through a period of incredible growth and development, it can inspire a doctor to dedicate his career to it. That’s what happened with Richard Felkner, MD, who was so inspired by the renaissance in ENT care in the 1960s that he became a specialist and spent decades caring for patients at CEENTA.
Since 1923, CEENTA has had a front-row seat to the growth and development of Charlotte and the surrounding region. Our doctors, like retired Ophthalmologist John Young, MD, have been there to see both our practice and the city grow.
If you were an eye patient at CEENTA between 1960 and 1995, there is a very good chance you were a patient of Martin Kreshon, MD. In addition to caring for countless patients, Dr. Kreshon had a front-row seat to the development of both the field of eye care and CEENTA itself during some of their most notable moments.
When you’ve cared for patients for 95 years, like CEENTA has, there’s a good chance that patients will keep coming back throughout their lives. No matter how much time passes between visits, the premier care we provide makes patients want to return. Just ask Alan Cauble.
Nurses have a front-row seat to medical care. As a CEENTA nurse for almost three decades, Mary Lee Haywood not only experienced the development of care firsthand, but she also had ties to some of the earliest days of CEENTA, too.
