LaFollette, Tenn. – On the heels of relocating to a larger and brand new location, the LaFollette Eye Clinic staff is getting a new look as well, with the addition of Dr. Jacquelyn Short, OD. She comes to LaFollette after most recently serving as an associate optometrist at Jonesborough Eye Clinic in Jonesborough, Tenn.
“In what has been an exciting second half of the year for us, we are blessed to end 2014 on another high note with the addition of Dr. Short,” said Dr. Andy Howard, CEO of LaFollette Eye Clinic. “As our practice continues to grow, we look forward to Dr. Short’s contribution in providing high quality personalized patient eye care.”
Dr. Short is a graduate of Southern College of Optometry, Memphis, Tenn., where she graduated with magna cum laude honors and was inducted into the Beta Sigma Kappa Honor Society. Her prior experience includes stints with the Jonesborough Eye Clinic, James H. Quillen VA Medical Center in Johnson City and The Eye Center in Memphis, among others. She strongly believes in volunteering her time for worthwhile causes, especially in local and international missions. While at Southern College of Optometry, she was actively involved in the Fellowship of Christian Optometrists and participated in medical mission trips to Guatemala, Honduras, Belize and Haiti. Dr. Short has special interests in family eye care, pediatrics, ocular disease, pre and post-surgical care, and providing low vision treatment and rehabilitation.
“I’m excited to work alongside the exceptional team at LaFollette Eye Clinic and look forward to becoming a part of the Campbell County Community,” said Dr. Short.
With her addition, the LaFollette Eye Clinic now boasts 30 employees, including 5 optometrists along with 15 certified staff members.
In October, LaFollette Eye Clinic moved into a new home, a 10,000 square foot facility featuring a look and feel unlike any physicians’ office in the area. The owners, Drs. Andy and Elizabeth Howard, worked with the design team to create a building that is a celebration of vision and is dedicated to the enjoyment and beautification of the community. Visitors are greeted with a sleek, modern exterior design. Upon entering, visual surprises abound including textures, various lighting effects, and modern decor.
