My practice has been a Care1 Integrated Clinic for over 3 years. Since collaborating with Care1 , my associate optometrists and I have had instant access to ophthalmologists for co-management and consultations that normally would take weeks if not months.”

Working with Care1  has been one of the best decisions for us when we decided to start co-managing more complicated cases such as glaucoma. I would recommend Care1 to any practice that is looking for a telemedicine solution for their patients.”

Dr. Kelsey Ford, OD
Optometrist and Practice Owner

I have been very pleased with what Care1 has done to help us address the needs of our patients. I feel that when optometry and ophthalmology work together in a more collaborative way, the quality of care for our patients is vastly improved. Care1 has been an excellent vehicle to help in this regard.”
