Dr. James Santoro, Mount Vernon eye doctor
We are pleased to announce that Dr. James Santoro will be available for appointments in our Mount Vernon office. Dr. Santoro has over 33 years of experience working with pre- and post- operative patients, medical eye care such as glaucoma and diabetes and family eye care. He comes to us from the Everett Clinic but, as a Whatcom County resident, he was pleased to join our practice as he mainly serves in our Bellingham office. Adding Dr. Santoro to Mount Vernon affords more availability to our patients in our busiest location. Our aim is to be available where YOU need us!
