And the Whidbey Eye Center in Coupeville is now joining our community.
As of June 5, the Whidbey Eye Center becomes part of Cascadia Eye, and we are pleased to welcome Dr. Mark Cichowski, a long-time colleague of ours in Whidbey Island, as one of our Cascadia Eye doctors!
Whidbey Eye Center was previously in the capable hands of Dr. Michael Mequio, who acquired the practice from Dr. Cichowski and has been its main practicing doctor, but due to unforeseen circumstances is no longer able to do so. Dr. Cichowski, together with our own doctors Siapco, Pereira, and Rasmussen, have stepped in to make sure the patients in Whidbey continue to have the quality care they’ve come to expect.
A little about Dr. Cichowski (pronounced Chehusky): he founded Whidbey Eye Center in Coupeville nearly the same time that Dr. Crowell founded our own practice! A board-certified ophthalmologist since 1983, Dr. Cichowski was first board-certified in Internal Medicine before he went on to his ophthalmology residency at University of Michigan. Between his many mission trips to communities in need–all around the globe–he continues to see patients for routine and medical exams in Whidbey Island.
We are also excited to welcome the capable and friendly staff of Whidbey Eye Center to the Cascadia Eye family. They will continue to ably serve Coupeville and the surrounding communities, and we are thrilled to have them on board.
What does all this mean for patients?
Well, if you are already a patient of Cascadia Eye, and if you live closer to Coupeville/Whidbey Island than any of our other four locations, you’re in luck! Dr. Cichowski, Dr. Siapco, and Dr. Pereira will all be seeing patients in our newly-added fifth clinic (formerly Whidbey Eye Center) at 109 NE Birch Street, Coupeville, WA 98239.
If you’re a previous patient of Whidbey Eye Center, you’re in luck! You’ll still see the faces you love in the location you know. And with added doctors, staff, and technology, you’ll get the bonus of award-winning expertise and access to cutting-edge services, including a state-of-the-art surgery center.
Cascadia Eye welcomes Whidbey Island to the family; we hope we exceed your expectations in every aspect of eye care.
